(Newser) – Female competitive eaters took first, second, and third place at the this year's US Professional Wing Eating Championship yesterday, consuming a total of 500 chicken wings between them, reports Buffalo News. Taking home the title was Miki Sudo, 28, who downed 178 wings in 12 minutes. She was followed by Michelle Lesco with 158, and Sonya "the Black Widow" Thomas close by with 141. Champion hot dog scarfer Joey Chestnut, who won last year's championship with a record 191 wings, did not show up to defend his title, reports the AP.

If 178 wings sounds like more than you could eat in a week, chew on this: Sudo also won the Buffet Bowl Contest the day before—a race to eat a five-pound platter of Buffalo-style cuisine, according to Major League Eating. "One contest is exciting as it is, but to have two wrapped up in a two-day period is something else,” says Sudo, who weighs only 115 pounds. “I just can’t wait for next year."

I feel this kind of "contest" is an inconsiderate slap in the face of all the hungry people in the well as proving the opinion held by other countries that as a country we are all gluttons! ....was going to fix chicken for supper...changed my mind...please pass the Tums.
