Dr. Obvious Speaks

This year's "winner" Joey Chestnut, enjoying a holiday weiner.

This week's winner for the quote containing the least amount of new information comes to us from Dr. Marc Siegel (now forever to be known as "Dr. Obvious"), a professor at the New York University School of Medicine.
