Hot Dog Contest not that Impressive

National news on July 4 in the States included a guy winning the hot dog eating contest in New York. He ate sixty-some hot dogs.

Kind of repulsive.

Lovens, pictured above, is five years old and weighed 14 pounds six weeks ago. He was found sitting in the dirt in his village unable to walk or stand on his own. He was brought to Port-au-Prince and is now in an orphanage and he is eating all he can get his hands on.

Quite a difference between eating to win a contest and eating to stay alive.
