Joe Arpaio Challenges "Any Reporter" to Hot Dog Eating Contest. We Accept. Loser Quits His Job?

Game on, sheriff.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's got a hankerin' for rocker Alice Coopers' two-foot wiener.

Apparently so impressed with the two-foot hot dogs served at Coopers' Cooperstown restaurant in Phoenix, the sheriff has challenged "any reporter" to an eating contest.

"After signing autographs at Cooperstown yesterday, I'm now ready to challenge any reporter to an eating contest with the 2ft hotdog," Arpaio tweeted yesterday.


We accept, and propose a wager on the outcome: the loser has to quit his job.


We're sure the sheriff can put down a dog or two, but we've got some experience in overindulging on heart-attack-inducing meats.

In May, New Times staffers participated in an eating contest at Big Earl's BBQ in Scottsdale. We earned an impressive second-place finish after gorging 15.4 pounds of brisket, potato salad, fried pickles, and other (ahem) delicacies.

Granted, nearly every member of team New Times puked following the contest, but it was worth every chunk.

The wiener's in your court, sheriff. We await your reply.

What Arpaio didn't say in his tweet is that they can go into his body thru any means.

Um, we all realize that we're actually talking about him eating Randy Johnson's "big unit" here, right?  Not AC's...

 Correct me if I'm wrong? In 1998 Joe mistakenly let a inmate out of the 2 ave. jail. The New Times got this inmate to pose as a hotdog vender downtown.  [ Apparently Joe was a regular? ] The New Times snapped a photo of this absent without leave inmate serving Joe a hotdog.

More worthless dribble from a worthless "law enforcement" clown.  Arpaio, don't you have anything better to do than to challenge reporters to a hot dog eating contest?  You are NOT funny and you seem more demented as each day passes.Lord...where is Mother Nature?  Sure hope she visits soon.

Joe Arpaio is the best thing to ever happen to Maricopa County!  His successes are the envy of departments across the country and around the world.  The Phoenix New Times, on the other hand is a joke.  Keep up the great work Joe!

OK, so Arpaio gobbles the weenie like nobody else. Nice that he's gone public with it, but he's not exactly giving away a secret.

The whole pink undies thing is a dead giveaway.

I hope you get cut off medicare, and when the budget talks fail due to partisan politics, the GOP eats up your social security check.Why the fuck do I pay into that shit anyway, a socialist program for the old folks who wanna bitch about socialism. Perhaps if we take medicare away, they die off faster?

Yeah, don't forget about the DOJ, I mean that investigation they are doing; probably illegal, I bet they support the illegals. It's one large crazy conspiracy! Thankfully its people like you who can see past all that bullshit and know the all real issues America has is due to illegal immigration. You've seen all the money he alone has cost the state, fuck it.. we can pay all the illegals who sue him, our pockets are just that deep... we just gotta keep Joe on the TV and in the kitchens looking for dishwashers, our country will then improve.

He is more like the joke of the world...I see him as a media whore and a Bigot..Every time he opens his mouth you can hear the lack of education with every word spoken..people like this eventually run in to KARMA!! and when he gets his he will think of all the bad things he as done to people from Scott Norberg to the people that s it in his jail on the premise of innocent until proven guilty...

Ohh you're the angry guy who can't get a law enforcement job because you were trafficking large quantities of drugs. I have heard about you! You're so angry you couldn't work for Sheriff Joe because of your own idiotic choices, so now you spew hatred in a public board for lack of anything better to do with your life. How precious!

Not true, actually. There are many of us who think like that. The only reason the old asshole is still alive is because it's illegal to kill cretin like him, honestly. If licenses were sold the line would be blocks long...

"I have spent a few nights with the Captain."

As have I. The Captain is what keeps me sane. I got a fresh bottle of it for personal enjoyment and a fat bottle of it for Joe's indictment.

 I have spent a few nights with The Captain.  I have a T-shirt that reads "Property of Captain Morgan" - LOL.  I got it at Albertson's from a character actor doing a CM promotion.  It was a pretty funny situation - the T-shirts weren't for sale, but I got one because of something that I said to the promotional actor that got him going in high speed... long story, but it was really funny.  email me at write.in.rick.2010@gmail.com if you want to hear the story - I won't post it out here because it has absolutely nothing to do with Arpaio and his hotdog challenge, but I'll share it if you want.

 Actually, if you were to go back an find my comments about the Giffords shooting when there were lots of message boards on that very topic, you would find that I said that while I did find Palin to be a loud-mouthed, annoying idiot, I didn't think her "cross hairs" in any way influenced a mentally ill young man to shoot a bunch of innocent people, and that while I think Arizona's gun control laws are too lax, I don't think it would have made any difference if there were laws in place to make it MORE illegal than it already is to take a gun to a public place and randomly shoot 16 people.  It was mental illness, not Sarah Palin or gun laws, that dictated Loughner's actions.  Likewise, if someone takes my post as sincere "begging" someone to off him, that would also be mental illness driving those actions.  Sorry that you are so uptight that you found my post offensive. I still think you need to lighten up a bit.

I commented on your thread because you ask someone to shoot a public servant which I think is despicable and you view as sarcasm and dark humor. Curious how you find it acceptable, living in the same state, within the same year Gabby Giffords was shot. You are trash.Coz is trash because he has made threats to kills public servant and is a coke head and has been arrested for aggravated assault after shooting 5 rounds at them. You both areTrash. I know, you can justify the reasons why it's ok to"joke" about killing arpaio. Fact is, it's innapropriate to even joke about such things reference ANY public official. Letme jump to conclusions as you have reference me. I am certain you are one of those who criticized and blamed silly Sarah Palin for Gabby being shot. Hypocrite.

 I noticed that you replied to a different post I made to you, but not this one.  Why do you avoid answering my questions about your stalking of Coz?  He's by far not the worst person free to roam the streets of Phoenix.  What is your issue?  What are you after?

wherewasi
wherewasi

 Oh, so what you're saying is that you only scope Arpaio message boards looking for Coz so that you can stalk him.  I get it.  You only insult me for despising Arpaio because Coz despises Arpaio and it's really your dislike of Coz and not your love of Arpaio that motivates you.  Hmmmmmmmmm.  Interesting.  I'm going to have to think on that one for a while.  I think I'm throwing barbs with a psychopath.  May have to put you on my "ignore poster" list.

Where have I praised arpaio? Another example of facts getting in the way of you making an argument. What actions committed by arpaio led to coz getting extra coin for nose candy? Yet another example of facts getting in the way.

 You seem to be someone who takes sarcasm and dark humor way too seriously.  You really ought to lighten up a bit.  It's good for your blood pressure.  It is also foolish and juvenile to stalk someone on message boards the way you do.

You FINALLY said two things I agree with:  "Bungaard is an idiot and a liar.  Pearce was a fool to stick up for him".

I just don't understand why you stalk Coz.  Are you the scum bag he shot at? There are thousands and thousands of people here in Phoenix that have done far worse than Coz.  Why do you have a wild hair up your behind over him?

wherewasi
wherewasi

 None of your indignant whining makes Arpaio any less of a corrupt politician and media whore, and you're still foolish for praising him.  Yes, I understand that it is the "county" that pays (actually it's the taxpayers) but it was the sheriff's actions that caused it.  No, I was not aware of Coz's story at the time.  All I knew about Arpaio back then is that he was the goofiest excuse for a sheriff I'd ever seen.  That was before I really started paying attention to how corrupt the MCSO is.  What really got my hostility boiling was when he snagged the spineless county attorney as a co-conspirator.

What's your point?

Yourproductsucks
Yourproductsucks

...and coz was awarded 12k in a judgement against the County, not against the sheriff, but we won't let facts get in the way of you making a point. Did you participate in the celebratory coke party when he received his payout?

Begging for someone to shoot another human being is foolish and juvenile. Coz comments are criminal since he has a history of this type of activity. He actually has shot at someone.

Bungaard is an idiot and a liar. Pearce was a fool to stick up for him. You are no less the fool for sticking up for your blogbuddy Jim coz who is a desperate wannabe who was weeded out.

I see I was able to get your pink boxers in a bundle with one sarcastic comment.  You should really consider growing up a little bit.  You probably also believe that the 10,000 plus signatures on the Pearce recall are from outside radical lefties and illegals, and that Bungaard is a "victim".  And I will remind you that Coz won a lawsuit against the sheriff.

Yes, there is an alliance of people who are smart enough to see the old fool for what he is - a corrupt politician and a media whore.

Coz was arrested for making threats on the sheriff after he was booted from the posse due to burglary and larceny convictions. He also fired shots at his business partner after an argument. This is who youhave chosento align yourself with? You are no former cop with statements like what you've wrote above.
