It's not just hot dogs that Joey Chestnut can stuff into his mouth quickly. He's also a wing eating pro, evidenced by his win at Hooters's World Wing Eating Competition in Clearwater, Fla. Chestnut scarfed down 144 wings in a mere 10 minutes.

His competitors were close behind -- Adrian "The Rabbit" Morgan ate 140 wings and Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas managed 131 wings.

Chestnut gets to take home $7,500 as his prize. Not bad for 10 minutes of work -- though that probably depends on how bad his indigestion was. He also got a shout-out on Hooters' Facebook page. Now there's some serious glory.
