Raise your hand if you knew the original driver of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was just 44 inches tall—and they couldn’t hire a larger driver because they wouldn’t have fit. Read on for more fun hot-dog-related facts.

Health care group wants Obama to stop eating junk food in public: “As role model to millions of Americans, the president has a responsibility to watch what he eats in public,” says Susan Levin of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Mmm, beefy: Hot dog makers fight over false advertising claims

  • beefy In 2009, Sara Lee, the company that makes Ball Park Franks, sued Kraft over false advertising by claiming that an ad which said that Oscar Mayer wieners tasted better than Ball Park Franks was simply untrue. Oh, and that Oscar Mayer wieners aren’t made with 100 percent beef.
  • beefier Meanwhile, Kraft shot back with a lawsuit of its own, in which it claimed Sara Lee ran its own ads with false advertising claims suggesting other hot dogs “aren’t even in the same league.” Can’t we all just get along and claim that the process used to make hot dogs is kinda gross? source

Major League Eating is an organization full of greedy people

  • 69 the number of hot dogs Takeru Kobayashi ate while Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest went on yesterday
  • 68 the record at the event, set by one Joey Chestnut, Kobayashi’s mortal enemy, a few years back
  • 62 the number of hot dogs Chestnut ate during the event yesterday; he was declared the winner yet again source

» Why Kobayashi didn’t win: Simply put, he was competing several miles away from the Nathan’s event, at his own event. Last year, the dog-wolfer got into a very public battle with Major League Eating over the fact they wanted him to sign an exclusive contract to compete at the Nathan’s contest. He got arrested. This year, he let his dog-wolfing facilities do the work for him, and the organization wouldn’t recognize it because he wasn’t at Coney Island. A suggestion to Major League Eating: You aren’t Major League Baseball. You’re just assholes. You wouldn’t exist had Kobayashi not made your event what it was a decade ago.

My first-ever article for The Daily: You may not know this, but occasionally I write things, and sometimes they get published in places. And in this case, The Daily took a chance on a young rapscallion with a bunch of numbers in his bag and wild facts about hot dogs on his mind, and turned it into this piece of magic. You’ll have to have The Daily’s full iPad interface to read the whole thing (99 cents a week, less than a case of Ball Park Franks!), but you can get most of it over here. Check it out! — Ernie @ SFB

Tough crowd: Obama’s toughest town hall question today

Wow. That stings. At Obama’s town hall today, the president took a couple of questions like this one, which seems really pointed for a town hall. That said, Obama’s answer to the question was effective and not one bit pandering. Still though, you have to wonder if he’s going to be able to bounce back from a sluggish recovery in one piece. source
