Like the comical '60s TV spy Maxwell Smart used to say, "Missed it by that much".

Food eating champ Joey ("The Jaws") Chestnut was trying to down 70 hot dogs at this past holiday weekend's famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. He came up one short, but he did break last year's record by two.

 

Yes, 69 wieners (and rolls) in 10 minutes! I would not suggest watching this video prior to a meal. However, if you're a hot dog fan like me, perhaps you'll feel a little less guilty for over-indulging as you (and I) did over the the last few days.
