the big-money competitive sport that now has corporate sponsors (Coke, Netflix) and millions of TV viewers, is a ruthlessly good read if you can stomach it. Before you shrug off gluttony-for-money as "just a joke," consider 1.) Its stature as a deadly-serious big-time business, and 2.) What it says about us that we cheer on competitors who eat 60 hot dogs in 10 minutes while people starve. Another big fat nail in the extra-large coffin of industrial supremacy. Read it and _____ (insert gastrointestinal verb of your choice).
Thanks to Jenny for the heads-up.
