Woman called the 'black widow' eats 173 wings in 12 minutes.

Sonya Thomas proved it again Saturday, winning the wing-eating championship at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in, where else, Buffalo. The competitive eater wolfed down 173 wings in 12 minutes. That's a new record for the holiday gathering. Thomas also holds the old one.

And unlike most of her rivals, she's no beefy chowhound. The 40-year-old Virginian weighs just 105 pounds. But she's known in competition as "The Black Widow."

Among her other eating achievements: 250 tater tots in five minutes, 37 hot dogs in 12 minutes, 11 pounds of cheesecake in nine minutes, and she once scarfed down 44 lobsters in 12 minutes. » Article here - Via Across The Board
