U.S.A.!!! U.S.A.!!!

It's a 4th of July miracle!!

In a gut-busting showdown that combined drama, daring and indigestion, Joey Chestnut emerged Wednesday as the world's hot dog eating champion, knocking off six-time winner Takeru Kobayashi in a rousing yet repulsive triumph.

Chestnut, the great red, white and blue hope in the annual Fourth of July competition, broke his own world record by inhaling 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes -- a staggering one every 10.9 seconds before a screaming crowd in Coney Island.

"If I needed to eat another one right now, I could," the 23-year-old Californian said after receiving the mustard yellow belt emblematic of hot dog eating supremacy.

It's going to be a "full" day for many of us. Have a great Fourth of July!

That just disgusts me. Sorry.

Of course, this may be even more disgusting.

Of course, Takeru Kobayashi suffered a "reversal" after eating 63 hot dogs and had a bad jaw. But still, a good win.
