Joey Chestnut Crowned Hooters Wing Eating Champion 2012 After Eating 144 Wings In 10 Minutes

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.
