For everyone currently eating themselves into a hot dog coma at their 4th of July barbecues, don't feel too bad -- competitive eater Joey Chestnut just downed 69 FRANKS at the famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Competition on Coney Island ... a new personal record.

Chestnut won the competition last year with 62 dogs, but this year he went above and beyond ... taking home the $10,000 grand prize and a mustard-yellow championship belt. Chestnut's previous personal best was 68 hot dogs.

He obliterated the competition too ... the 2nd place winner Matt Stonie only ate 51 hot dogs.

As for the women, Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas came in first with 37 hot dogs ... pretty damn scary.

These eating contests are sickening. Nothing more than gluttony. People are starving all around the world and these fools are forcing down food to win a competition.

Good riddance!    

I feel seriously bad for the fleet of plumbers who had to deal with the aftermath of breaking such records. Outside of holiday overtime, which is far too low for such a service, it is a brave, largely thankless thing they do clearing out the various forms of all things hotdog after these competitions!
