144 chicken wings, please: These aren't actually from Hooters but you get the picture. (Check bottom for credit)

Joey Chestnut has gorged his way to victory in Clearwater, Florida, beating off a Rabbit and a Black Widow to land the Hooters Wing-Eating crown.


Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut, the one-man eating machine, has won the first ever Hooters World Chicken Wing-Eating Championship, downing a whopping 144 wings in 10 minutes and picking up a cool $7,500 for his efforts.

However, it appears that the event was a close-run thing, with Adrian 'the Rabbit' Morgan coming second with 140 fowl flappers inside him at the bell.

Meanwhile, the Rake & Herald's favourite gurgitator Sonya 'the Black Widow' Thomas took bronze with 119 Gallus gallus domesticus appendages.

"She was gorgeous in defeat," Major League Eating's (MLE) Sam Barclay apparently said of Brandee, the Hooters Girl acting as the Black Widow's dedicated cheerleader.

According to the same MLE press release where we got the above quote and, er, all the results, Tim 'Gravy' Brown "put forth another valiant effort to take fourth", although we think there may have been a typo1 as it says he too devoured 119 wings.

Either that or the typo concerned the Black Widow's tally.

Who knows.

Anyway, ladies first and all or that.

Or third as the case maybe.

Whatever.

Typos or not, it appears that Bob 'Notorious B.O.B.' Shoudt came fifth with 115; Erik 'the Red' Denmark sixth with 102; and 'Nasty' Nate Biller seventh with 88.

It is not yet clear what happened to Londoner Lewis Richards, although we hope he still has room in his Auntie Nellie to 'ave a banana dahn the Strand.

Doin' the Lambeth Walk.

How's yer father?

All right!

Etc.

What is known from the press release is that "The Daily Show's Asiff Mandvi lost and lost badly" with just 21 wings under his belt.

Still, he got them for free so what's the problem?


MEGATOAD'S MEGA UPLOAD
Anyway, in other news, 20-year-old Matt 'Megatoad' Stonie, the MLE number six alimentary athlete who came fourth at this year's Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest with 46 dogs and buns, has just posted up this fantastic YouTube video of himself necking a one-gallon (3.8-litre) bottle of Gatorade.

In 37 seconds flat.

Nice chugging, sir!

And well done on winning the World Slugburger Eating Championship this past July 14 as well2.

You're literally a man to watch.

Footnotes

1) Not that you'll find any typos on this website.

2) Held in Corinth, Mississippi, the 2012 World Slugburger Eating Championship saw Megatoad necking a total of 30 slugburgers in 10 minutes to land his first MLE title. According to MLE, a slugburger "is a burger made of a mixture of beef and some form of cheaper breading extender which is then deep-fat fried to a golden brown instead of grilled [like a] common hamburger". It apparently contains no gastropod molluscs whatsoever, although I wouldn't let that put you off. No idea what they taste like, but Megatoad clearly does.
