A Hot Dog Take from the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Champion

We here at KSR enjoy the annual Nathan’s Hot dog Eating contest a bit more than your average people. So when the reigning, defending, undisputed hot dog eating champion of the world, Joey Chestnut, a man who once ate a world record 73.5 hotdogs in 10 minutes, decides to throw his hat into the ring around one of the internet’s greatest debates, we take notice.

So, Mr. Chestnut, is a hot dog a sandwich?

“You start considering a hot dog a sandwich, and you’re like ‘oh, because there’s carbs around it,’ then you have to start, kinda, is a gyro a sandwich? ‘Cause that’s kinda like … no. You have to keep division.”

There you have it, folks. The foremost authority on hot dog eating on the Earth is wrong. Because a hot dog is clearly a sandwich.

Feel free to discuss.

    Using the hot dog is a sandwich idea can possibly translate to a taco being a sandwich, and that’s just fake news.
