Imagine eating 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes, buns included!  That's what competitive eater Joey Chestnut did yesterday to win the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Competition in Coney Island.  It's his 10th win in 11 years.  Wow!

Apparently this competitive eating thing is popular.  There are contests for consuming ribs, donuts, corn on the cob, bacon, and Buffalo wings.

Did you ever think about participating in one of those competitions?  Or did you ever?  It would be fun to hear about your experience.  Please share in the Comments section.

And here's a question for the rest of you:  If you had to participate in a competitive eating competition, and you were guaranteed NOT to get ill or even feel full, what food would you pick?

I would go with pasta.  I never tire of it.

What food could you eat a lot of?
