PHILADELPHIA (AP) " In a gut-busting display of championship eating, a man nicknamed Super Squibb has won Philadelphia's Wing Bowl by downing 203 chicken wings in about 20 minutes. For his efforts, 23-year-old John Squibb of Berlin, N.J., gets a car, a $7,500 diamond ring and a crown of miniature chickens. And maybe a case of indigestion.

Thousands attend the early morning gorge-fest held every year on the Friday before the Super Bowl. The contest is sponsored by sports-talk station WIP-AM. It also features scantily clad "Wingettes" and a cast of sickened contestants.

Professional eaters were not allowed in this year's Wing Bowl, but organizers say they'll be back next year.

Richard "Not Rich" Razzi came in second by eating 180 wings





Once again, as a society we seem to be glorifying gluttony...rewarding it quite nicely even. The picture makes me nauseous.

"Professional eaters". I guess since we haven't been paid everyone else is an amateur!

@mismi,
and people wonder why everyone laughs at Philadelphia. Imagine paying money to go watch somebody puke up chicken cud.

203 chicken wings means that 101.5 chickens are walking around with prosthetic arms. Poor birdies

At Daniel 's on 65th Street ( 4 stars from NY Times )
after a good fish dinner, I had 9 of its signature
Chocolate Souffles with extra Pistachio Ice Cream.
I gotta tell u: thay really know how to do Chocolate Souffle;
new adventures in Chocolatyness. Thay are small for $15,
but if u buy enuf of them, thay will blow your mind.

The restaurant threw in the last 3 of them.


That 's my contribution to glorifying gluttony.

" These r the good old days, . . .
