Scott Ramos/Guinness World Records Edition 2013 Edition
Regular readers know that hot dogs have a special place here at Weird News Central -- especially since the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest is one of the biggest regularly scheduled weird news events of the year.

By the way, why is it that the mayor will preside over an event where a single person can eat 68 hot dogs... but then ban large sodas?

Anyway, I digress -- because here's a single hot dog that's an eating contest of its own: The seven-pound monster from Gorilla Tango Novelty Meats.

The big hot dog 16 inches long, four inches thick and made from beef, veal and pork in Chicago -- and now, it's a proud new member of Guinness World Records.
