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 dogs—10 more than last year—but 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.
