Eating is a sport, just ask Lizzo.

Yes, that was some good old fashioned fat joke in the era of fat shaming being a criminal offense.

Joey Chestnut, is a top competitive eater and he has been kicked out of this year's 4th of July hot dog eating contest.

The July 4th event is put on by Nathan's hot dog, but the eater is signed to Impossible Foods' team. Nathan's doesn't want competitive brands being at their flagship event and Joey Chestnut took the pay check from Impossible instead. Impossible is known for their vegan meat substitute sludge that dystopian novels spoke about. Like eating a condom filled with silicone cock that smells like a variation of what a hot dog would smell like if it was a scratch and sniff sticker in the 80s.

The eater has won 16 of 17 events over the last 17 years. He has a world record after eating 76 hot dogs with buns in 10 minutes back in 2021.

The Major League Eating league says they have bent over backwards to meet (meat?) Chestnut's demands but the Nathan's event is exclusive to Nathan dogs and no other brands can be mentioned.

Nathan's said they are devastated by Joey's decision to choose fake hot-dogs over competing in the Nathan's event.

I guess the highest bidder won!

Here he is with Caitlin Clarke:

Here he is for Nathan's back in November, before the breakup.
