This past week, Japanese competitive-eating star Takeru Kobayashi, most famous for his one-time world record for eating 53¾ hot dogs in 12 minutes, announced that he has been diagnosed with jaw arthritis, which may hamper his performance at the upcoming Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, the Super Bowl of eating competitions. A slew of food and jaw-related headlines were plastered on news outlet all over the internet. Here are some of Gelf's favorites for you to chew on:
