    seriously. doesn't anybody in this country get how sickening these sort of contests are ????? people are starving of hunger in this world and oh let's not forget this country – probably a minor concern though....

    When I flipped on AC 360 last night as I always do, I was revolted to see this contest receiving this kind of publicity. Thousands of animals were slaughtered to promote a game. Although I am not a vegetarian and do not oppose the consumption of meat for normal meal purposes, I found it sad that Americans reportedly took pride in seeing a man consuming 66 hot dogs, 60 of which were most likely unnecessary in guaranteeing him a full stomach. Those extra dogs could have been given to the hungry people in our own nation who struggle to feed their families on a daily basis.
