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.

Actually he broke his 'own' record and tied Takeru Kobayashi's record which is also 69.

I guess there's no question about whether Sonya the "Black Widow" Thomas swallows or not.

Doesn't it bother anyone else that this douche is wearing a US flag like a shawl and is wiping his mouth on it? Especially on the Fourth of July? This guy doesn't deserve squat.
Maybe someone, preferably a present or former US Marine nearby this dude needs to introduce this guys's face to his own rear end.
