Black Widow Wins Wing-Eating Contest

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Sonya Thomas, a voracious eater known as `The Black Widow,` ate a record 181 chicken wings in 12 minutes Sunday in Buffalo, N.Y., organizers ruled.

Her performance at the 2010 National Buffalo Wing Festival wasn`t a fluke -- it`s the fourth time she`s won the competition." - UPI

You`d think that a champion competitive eater would be a fat blimp, but surprisingly The Black Widow is slender. Sonya may have a big mouth, but she doesn`t have a fat belly.

Sonya is an attractive lady, and I wouldn`t mind taking her out to dinner. But I wouldn`t take The Black Widow to an all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant, she might embarrass me by going to the buffet table a dozen time.

Sonya beat a field of extreme eaters, including men with huge beer bellies. When it comes to the sport of competitive eating it`s not the size of the belly that matters, but the size of the heart.
