Wait until hot dog eating contest hater Peter King hears about Joey Chestnut’s latest stunt that consisted of slamming a 12-pound walking taco in 38 minutes. Peter’s going to get emotional thinking about what this all means for humanity while watching Chestnut strategically work his way through a full-size Doritos bag using a serving spoon you’d normally see shoved into a bucket of store-bought potato salad at a family reunion.
There are athletes who compete with balls. Then there’s the athlete who has balls to fire up a 12-pounder and dig in. You know what’s great about Chestnut and the big boy eaters? They haven’t made their sport about social justice. It’s all about the food. Joey shuts up and eats.
Here’s the ingredients list for this bad boy:
- 2 pounds of chips
- 3 pounds of ground beef
- 2+ pounds of cheese
- 1+ pound of salsa
- 6+ avocados
- onions and sour cream
- Joey’s signature green hatch and jalapeno sauce
“That was tasty,” the sweaty and exhausted Chestnut said after he completed it. “I’m going to take a nap, maybe have a beer.”
