    I think ALL of us visiting this page would be completely screwed if that was God’s way of doing business.

    If you watch some of his older videos he plays around with outdoor industrial fryers and barbecue furnaces and seems knowledgeable when it comes to the perils and pitfalls of cooking outdoors. I have no idea how the fire got started but he does do alot of cooking

    @12:39 – Try again. I am with MLE and I was one of the first to donate. In fact, the sense of camaraderie and the close knit friends of the eating community is probably the biggest and best takeaway I will get from this hobby after I retire.

    I also donated to one of his fundraisers that was started by a fellow MLE eater. The friendship between eaters transcends between leagues, as it should 🙂

    Again, there were three MLE eaters who were directly responsible in helping to get Koby released. That is a fact.

    Brett Healey, thank you so much for both comments. Perfectly written. I love the camaraderie of MLE. There are spiteful people who write negative things just like the above. They are talking out of their hotdog.

    I would be a fool to divulge the names. You should be able to guess anyway if you are so tuned in to MLE and CE. Why don’t you guess. You just would rather make accusations.

    Here’s proof of Darron from MLE donating. This is from Venmo you can’t see everyone’s donations so get a life and stop being a jerk off in a tragic situation.

    Kobayashi was in jail only for overnight. He said that people were very nice to him, that one of his many cellmates gave him a towel paper tube to use for a pillow. He was released the next morning to tons of press. He got more press out of that MLE stupid incident than he would have had he eaten at Nathan’s.

    Your grammar is wrong unless you mean what you wrote or you mean that many eaters went to the jail where Kobayashi was held. It is kind of a funny sentence. I do know of one eater in MLE who had an “incident” and Joe who acknowledges that he has cleaned up his act after being in jail.
