We reported earlier that former hot dog eating champion, Takeru Kobyashi, was scheduled to appear in a New York courtroom this morning after causing a scene at the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. Now, it seems he's out of hot water so long as he doesn't bark up the wrong tree.

From the CNN Wire staff:

Hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi was sentenced to six months' probation Thursday in New York. The charges against him - resisting arrest, trespassing, obstruction of governmental administration and disorderly conduct - will be dismissed if he successfully completes it.

Well, hot dog! Read the FULL STORY

And we tried...TRIED to resist, but here goes. Puns. Bad ones.

- Kobayashi tried putting it behind him, but he knew his actions would ketchup with him sooner or later.

- No doubt Koby's defense team hopes he'll end up a wiener at the hearing today if their strategy cuts the mustard.

- Frankly, few folks relish the notion of Koby serving time.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

No need to clam up - today, the world is your oyster.

What's on TV?
