A 30-inch hot dog grows in Brooklyn

A couple of giant hot dog stories are posted at SuperSizedMeals.com. I sort of feel bad recycling content from other blogs, but hey, I don't get all the sweet referrals like they do, so screw it. Besides, when I do get inspiration from other blogs, you can be sure I'll always give credit where credit is due.

The first story is about a 30-inch hot dog served up by Schnack, a hot joint in Brooklyn (Tagline: "People try it...and they like it"). On Monday, Schnack is hosting an eating contest for their two-and-a-half-foot monster dog, but in the meantime they're holding a few qualifying rounds to separate the gurgitators from the mere eaters. The guy on the right has lots of good pictures from his recent visit. His blog ("Iron Stomach") sounds pretty cool, and I just might keep an eye on it. His blog's tagline: "Food, beer, wine, drinks, and other things that go in my mouth." (Whoa buddy!!)

The other hot dog story is from competitive eater Andrew "Skinnyboy" Lane's website. He just celebrated a birthday with a cake shaped like a hot dog. Check out a few of the cross section pics. It looks like the hot dog is made out of pure icing! Mmmm...icing that looks like processed meat products.
