There are time here in Detroit where peoples actions make you swell with pride. There are other times where you just shake your head in confusion and disbelief at the sheer stupidity.
Below the chopper, 25 people waited to gather as many franks as they could, for a contest co-hosted by a local radio station. The winner went home with a thousand bucks and free American Coney dogs for a year. Though they might have gotten their fill already, what with the wiener monsoon. Let’s hope the sausage hoarders were wearing helmets, too; the owner of the eatery, Grace Keros, said they dumped a total of about 140 pounds of processed meat.
I understand publicity stunts are fun and all, but you also gotta look at the fact of how many hungry and homeless people there are in the city. Eating contest and anything where food is wasted just strike me as arrogant and cruel to those who would love a bite to eat.
Although at least it’s better than this…..
