Don’t mess with Joey Chestnut when he’s trying to eat some hotdogs.
During the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on the Fourth of July, a protester attempted to interrupt the annual competition, and the greatest hot dog eater to ever live handled him like a fly on an elephant. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Do not mess with Joey Chestnut! Do not mess with a man while he’s in the zone. That protester had absolutely no idea what hit him.
He was in a headlock before he could even realize what was going on. I believe that’s what people call instant karma.

It’s amazing how people think there are no consequences for their dumb actions. This guy probably thought he could bring the entire event to a grinding halt.
Instead, Chestnut hit him with a headlock and didn’t even slow down as he cruised to another victory. This is right up there with Michael Jordan’s flu game. This performance will be remembered for years to come.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes! It’s a formula as old as time!
