Now that's a belly full o' bratwurst

Takeru Kobayashi downed 58 brats in 10 minutes Saturday to take top prize at the Johnsonville Brat-Eating World Championship in Sheboygan, Wis.

The Sheboygan Press reports that Kobayashi, who hails from Nagano, Japan, had never seen or even heard of a bratwurst before signing up for the Brat Days competition. But he took a liking to the savory sausages and plans to come back next year and gun for the 60-bratwurst mark, he said through a translator.

Let's see ... "First five dozen bratwurst of summer" ... Naw, it just doesn't have that melodious lilt that makes for a powerful polka.
