Forgive us if we fail to perish from shock, but it would seem that reports of pro glutton Takeru Kobayashi's withdrawal from the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest due to contract disputes centered around a year long non-compete clause may have been a tad premature.

Chef Tom Colicchio dropped by Eatocracy HQ (okay, he was gonna be on Campbell Brown's show and we stalked him) & among other trivial things, like, you know, the oil spill and school lunch reform, he was sporting enough to perform a #fishsongs live.

Oh, uh, and oil spill and school lunch info to follow. Soon.

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Elizabeth Karmel is certainly someone to take a "cue" from.

A North Carolina native, Karmel is now the executive chef of Hill Country in New York City, where she bestows her low-and-slow knowledge on the barbecue restaurant's brisket, sausage, ribs and all the fixins'.

Karmel is also the creator of Girls at the Grill: a group to encourage women to grab their tongs and grill with the best of 'em.

Just in time for the big Fourth of July grilling weekend, Elizabeth shares her favorite mustards - those hot dogs and hamburgers are just waiting for a smear.

Yesterday, our editors started a #meatsongs hashtag on Twitter - starting with "We're Having a Meatwave" and finishing with "Holding Out for a Gyro."

Soon after, thanks to our loyal Twitter followers and a few Twitter heavyweights like Ruth Bourdain, Tom Colicchio and Chris Cosentino, #meatsongs became a Trending Topic!

In case you missed out on the action, we've compiled 25 of the most carnivorous carols. (Editors' Note: There were far, FAR, far more entries. If we missed you, no fowl intended.)

(UPDATE: Tom Colicchio happened by and shared one live!)
