Jose, San -- You See, by the after-noon light...

Happy Birthday USA!

The Grasshopper is amused to note that this date is bookended by
  • Disobedience Day -- July 3rd
  • X Day (Church of the Subgenius) -- July 5th
Also, worthy of note is that the annual Hot Dog Eating Championship
has been won for the 2nd year in a row by San Josean Joey Chestnut.

Way to go, Joe!!!

Note: what may appear to be a horrible paint job on
the exterior of the building is,in reality a
mediocre photoshop job on the original image.

I quite like that some of the light circles are themselves red, white, and blue. Tres cool.

Is this hot dog eating contest the Nathans sponsored contest? And if so, I thought the reigning champ was an Asian dude (who can scarf down something like 40 dogs in one minute or something preposterous like that)?

Kobayashi lost his crown to JC last year, and came in second again this time.
