I think we all remember the story of Takeru Kobayashi, the champion of the annual Nathan’s Famous July Fourth International Hot Dog Eating Contest, right?
Well, who said there was no such thing as a professional eating injury? It appears as if the hot dog eating champ has been stricken with arthritis of the jaw. Kobayashi can’t even open his mouth open more than the size of say a fingertip. Poor guy, but apparently he’s got his chin up, as Takeru has already signed up for the competition this year. Last year he managed to put 53 hot dogs down the hatch in 12 minutes.
