    Kobayashi eats record 58 brats in Wisconsin

    Kobayashi eats record 58 brats in Wisconsin







    SHEBOYGAN, Wis. The world's best competitive eater has chomped his way to another win.

    Japan's Takeru Kobayashi (tah-kah-roo koh-bee-yah-shee) has consumed a record 58 bratwursts, without buns, at the Johnsonville World Bratwurst Eating Championship in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. That beat the record of 34 and a-half set last year by Virginia's Sonya Thomas.

    Kobayashi earned eight-thousand dollars.

    The 160-pound Kobayashi is a seasoned veteran at 27. But in the Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest in New York on July Fourth, he narrowly beat 22-year-old Joey Chestnut of San Jose, California.

    Kobayashi says, "Brats are a little bit harder to eat." He explains that "with hot dogs, it's more volume. You're actually dipping the buns in water."

    Chestnut finished a distant second with 45 brats. He says he "wasn't able to prepare for this contest like the Fourth of July."

    I'm not sure if brat is a homophone or homonym, but I had to read that headline twice to make sure someone didn't eat a bunch of ill-behaved children.

    The most impressive thing about that guy is that he is absolutely RIPPED. To eat as much as he does and keep in the shape he does shows just how dedicated he is to being the best at his craft.

    The "brat" that rhymes with "cat" is a kid who needs a time-out.

    The "brat" that rhymes with "cot" is a delicious sausage which serves as a terrific alternative to a hot dog and is a Wisconsin staple.

    Now when you says "brats", are you referring to the hotdogs.... or small impish children?

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Without a doubt, the most dominant athlete of his generation.
    "I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."

    Welcome to the party, GAC.

    Yeah, I knew they were pronounced differently, but you can read it either way.

    Actually, brat is a heteronym, I guess, because the words are pronounced differently but spelled the same. For some reason I thought homonyms or homophones included words that were spelled the same but pronounced differently, but they only include words that are pronounced the same.

    I hope that makes cents. Or scents, rather.
