    Hot Dog Drama

    Kobayashi, the ex hot dog eating champ, was arrested at the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest for crashing the event.

    Kobayashi told reporters he had a sandwich and a glass of milk while being held. "I am very hungry," he said. "I wish there were hot dogs in jail."

    after winning again, Joey Chessnut commented on Kobayashi's visit saying, if he's a real man, he'd be in the competition

    interesting

    Why did he really do it? Perhaps it's as GeekoSystem suggests, that Kobyashi is a little miffed that he was shut out of the contest because he was not willing to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating, the organization that controls all of these big gobbling contests these days. Kobyashi, Geekosystem notes, put the Nathan's contest -- and competitive eating in general -- on the map, after all. So perhaps he just wanted people to remember that.

    And perhaps to point out the absurdity of an organization called "Major League Eating." Quite ironic that a hot-dog eating contest on the Fourth of July, which is supposed to represent freedom and patriotism, would require participants to sign restrictive, exclusive contracts. Must every popular activity we touch in this country become a corporate, bloated money-grab?

    It might also be the first time someone's performed an act of civil disobedience with pre-printed T-shirts while accompanied by an interpreter.

    Well if I was Major League Eating and I paid a guy money to be in a few contest that I hosted then yeah I wouldn't want him to go out and enter a few other contest just so that he could make more money ...

    I wonder how much they make anyways?
