4th of July, Waste, and Extreme Form of Triviality

Filed under: American Culture — admin @ 12:18 am

The world is never poor in providing weird forms of entertainment. Yesterday I learned that a man ate 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes at the annual 4 July contest at Coney Island in New York, shattering his old record of 66. Once again, the world record for competitive hot dog eating has been proudly broken by an American.

It beats my limited brain to try to understand why people go through such a torture cramming down their necks so many hot dogs. I can never drag myself through this eating process unless my head is absolutely empty and all my brain power has been put off.

I read it somewhere as a true story that some Americans truly believe the only America has 4th of July. This story always shows up in my mind during 4th of July.

By the way, my son came back on 7/3 and will be leaving next Monday. The nephew also came back for the long weekend. The house has been full of life and laughter ever since.

Happily ended a 4th of July Saturday.
