1.) The rules of the hot dog-eating challenge at Spike's!
You’re an ESL teacher at an accredited English language school in Boston’s posh Back Bay.
Where do you take your students for the final field trip of Session 8?
First to bowling, then to a hot dog-eating contest, of course!
I’ve written a photo essay about Laos, but what follows is far classier: a photo essay documenting a hot dog-eating challenge!
To be frank (haha!) I think you’ll dig the tale’s shocking twists.
And you’ll have to wonder: would YOU be up for the hot dog challenge???
2.) Teachers Ed and Dave order 6 dogs each. Laughter!
3.) Could they beat the reigning champ: 17 dogs?!
4.) Dave and Ed dig into hot dog #1 with gusto!
5.) Dave begins to see the enormity of the task ahead
6.) The dogs leer cockily at Ed and Dave. Who would win: Man or Frankfurter?? Who could gulp down more dogs: Dave or Mike?
7.) Business continues as usual. They're so used to this!
8.) SUDDENLY, student Mike enters the race! Could such a petite, mild-mannered man even eat one dog?
9.) WHOA! Mike has a technique: dog first, buns after!
10.) Ed pushes onward, scoffing at Mike's challenge
11.) But Mike plows forward with laser-like focus
12.) Ed's life begins to swirl before his eyes
13.) Dave starts to hate planet Earth and everything in it
14.) Ed asks "Is there an an anti-hot dog sauce?"
15.) "YOU BETTER NOT QUIT!" screams Ed to Dave
16.) Mike reaches his final hot dog!!!!!!!
17.) "NOO!" shreiks Ed in anguish, "How is he doing it?!"
18.) Mike daintily cuts and swallows dog #6... and WINS!
19.) "This was the worst idea ever," sobs Ed.
20.) The rest of us slurp up the remaining dogs, joyful
21.) It was a proud day for hot dogs everywhere!
