Hot Dog Eating Champion

The late Wang Hu Sing holds the world record as hot dog eating champion, after eating 645 hot dogs in one sitting. By the time he was finished there were pieces of hot dog coming out of even his belly button and he died of glass poisoning.

Yeah, I have a friend who used to work at a hot dog factory, so I know a little bit about this. You know how hot dogs are like all the leftover pieces of meat, all ground up and stuck in a tube? Well, since it's not the stuff that people normally eat, they need to add something to help people digest it more easily. They tried a few different things, but the best, or at least most economic, is trace amounts of ground glass. For a person eating normal quantities of hot dogs, it's relatively harmless, but obviously this dude wasn't eating normal quantities of hot dogs.
