Man brings his own cheese plate to football game, because hot dogs aren’t good enough

Sometimes you’re too fancy for a limp, overpriced hot dog.

Like this dude who brought his own cheese platter during an Australian rules football match between the Melbourne Demons and St Kilda Football Club on Sunday.

Look, we’re not going to lie, bringing your own cheese platter for instant consumption sounds like quite the idea. The occasion however, is a little questionable.

The platter features avocado, blocks of cheese (perhaps a blue?), cured meats and a baguette on a wooden board (!), according to a person claiming to be the man’s friend on Reddit. Ooh la la.

And of course, seems like people are into the idea. Well, some of them at least.

American hero and competitive eater Joey Chestnut just won Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest for the 10th time by scarfing down 72 (!) hot dogs.

The annual event, held on Coney Island, N.Y., requires participants to eat as many hot dogs as possible in a 10-minute period.

Chestnut originally aimed to finish 80 hot dogs10 more than last yearbut still earned the top title with 72.

The internet, as usual, reacted with some creative tweets to cheer on the reigning hot dog-eating champion.

(WARNING: Watch it only if you can stomach.)

ESPN wasn’t shy about, um, comparing Chestnut to sports’ greatest champions.

Of course, a champion of Chestnut’s stature can’t simply walk across the boardwalk.

But staying the king of hot dog eating contests requires a hefty appetite. Here’s what Chestnut’s diet looked like today:

Hope he has some Pepcid AC handy.

6 Fun Treats To Have This MDW That’ll Make You Forget About The Recalled Hot Dogs

If youre getting ready for your annual Memorial Day bbq, there are a few things you need toknow.

The three-day weekend celebration isnt complete without some grilling, but you have to be careful this year.

Were sorry to inform you, but the US Department of Agriculture said Nathans and Curtis brand hot dogs are contaminated with extraneous materials like metal which definitely doesnt go well with sauerkraut so make sure youre looking at the labels.


If you see the following information on thepackaging, toss thosebad boys right in the garbage.

  • 14 oz. sealed film packages containing Nathans SKINLESS 8 BEEF FRANKS, with a Use By date of Aug. 19, 2017.
  • 16 oz. sealed film packages containing Curtis BEEF MASTER Beef Franks, with a Use By date of June 15, 2017.

While its certainly a bit of a bummer that of hot dogs are being recalled seven days before MDW perhaps the worst time of the year dont get bummed.

You might have to think of replacements for your hot dogs, but let me assure you, there are plenty especially when it comes to desserts.There are manytreats that will bring you right out of that lack-of-hot-dog funk.

If you have a sweet tooth, try these babies.

Oreo just released a limited-edition flavor that is the perfect for the summer season Firework.

Who needs boring ol hot dogs when you have these?


Live a little by combiningbooze and dessert.

We know beer is a staple at any backyard bbq, especially during MDW.

Since dessert is as necessary as that Corona, combine the best of both worlds with Tipsy Scoops liquor-infused ice cream.

If youre not near the New York City flagship store, order your pint of boozy ice cream right here.

Tipsy Scoop

Make the cupcakes of everyones dreams.

While were on the booze theme, you should most definitely make cupcakes with Prosecco-flavored frosting.

The bubbly, tingly feeling goes well with the fireworks theme, in my opinion.

(OK, sold put it on the grocery list.)


While youre at it, get some blue Prosecco, too.

Red, white and blue are our MDW colors, after all. Youre just showing your American spirit.

Fratelli Saraceni

Channel your favorite place while munching.

Hersheys just announced the release of its limited-edition Flavors of America collection, and it features a twist on classic treats with a state-inspired theme.


Make your own Merbabe latte like The End in Brooklyn.

Summer is about the sea so get in the kitchen and create your own version of the Merbabe.

Amanda Fama

Pretty fun list, right? I am willing to be youre not missing those hot dogs now.

No need to thank me, its what Im here for. See you on the dessert line!
