Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Calories

June 9th, 2012

Who said this about the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island??

It is  “a moment for all New Yorkers and all Americans to celebrate the inalienable rights bestowed on us by our forefathers: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For the contestants assembled here, that pursuit includes consuming as many hot dogs as is humanly possible.”

GIve up? Mayor Bloomberg! Hot Dogs good, Soda bad. Got it.
