Last weekend was Independence Day for America. These days, on this holiday many people enjoy BBQing or going to a festival and eating the delicious junk food. There might be a parade. And there are also fireworks involved. BOOM!
In New York City every Fourth of July there is a Hot Dog Eating contest. It’s a funny way to celebrate American freedom, of course, but the funniest part is that a skinny Japanese guy won the contest for many years (from 2001 to 2006). This year, due to a contract dispute, he couldn’t join the contest. But he jumped up on the stage! And then he was arrested!
I was pretty surprised to see this video.
Thanks for reading!
