Hot Dog Flag!

An Australian company has put together flags created with its corresponding country’s cuisine.

Ours? Why, hot dogs, of course!

And truly, who among us does not enjoy the all-American all-beef frank?

There are a lot of other cool flags there. The Australian flag is made of a meat pie with sauce. Yum!

Check out these incredible, edible designs here. Which one is your favorite?

New Hot Dog Champion

It’s National Hot Dog Month! Yes!

And Nathan’s just had its famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. What a way to honor the frank – shove as many into your mouth as you can in a short amount of time.

This year’s champion is Joey Chestnut, who set a new record of 69. He absolutely shattered his own record. He beat it by one.

Chestnut says he does this for the “prestige” and not the prize money. And can you blame him?

Read on for more about the hot dog record here.

And have your own contest at home with these beef franks. Ya gotta eat the buns, too. So make sure you’re hungry first.

If you do hold your contest at home you won’t win the prize money, but the prestige factor will definitely be there.

Eat on, my hot dog loving friends!
