"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

The IFOCE meets Saturday morning cartoons

Found this funny 5-minute animated video on YouTube about the Nathan's hot dog eating contest. For some reason the first 17 seconds are blank, but it's better after that.

The cartoon features three fictional eaters facing off against Takeru Kobayashi (though "Hungry" Steve Hardy is obviously inspired by "Hungry" Charles Hardy). The scientific theories of how Koby is able to eat so much are great and the contest portion makes use of the awesomely cheesy song from the end of The Karate Kid when Daniel does the crane kick to beat Cobra Kai's ass ("You're the best around, nothin's ever gonna keep you down!").

Enjoy, but please pardon the hideous stereotypes.

If we're doing cartoons, a friend sent me this right before Nathan's:
