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.

What the fcuk TMZ? All your stories have ridiculous adolescent innuendo in the titles. You all sound like a bunch of middle school bots saying "dirty words" and giggling like a bunch of girls while you do a circle jerk. Grow the fcuk up.

Harvey & Dax must be enjoying the day off together, or there would be all kinds of gay innuendo in a story that included the number 69 and the word hot dog.

good thing the long intestine is 7 meters long to store all them wieners and their buns.. hope they had no condiments on them.
i think 69 wieners lined up would be longer than the 7 meter intestine this man has.. so gross

Winning a hot dog eating contest is like winning a debate on the internet. Even if you win. You still lose.

How is gluttony a sport? Athletics is supposed to be about being proud of your body and what it can accomplish. This guy looks sick and like he is making himself sick. That is why I think that this sport is sickening.

You should eat to live, not live to eat or to show off. Every time i watch these videos I feel disgusted. Some people are thin because they realize that there are people starving all over the world.

People who run marathons into having a heart attack or who take steroids to perform better, or allow themselves to beat up for sport are hard to explain also.

I think that this takes compulsive eating to a whole new level.
