Scott Bickel, a local amateur competitive eater and all-around character, set out last night to break the world record for chicken wings eaten in a single sitting. The goal: 242, which would top the 241, the previous record, eaten by Joey Chestnut.
Your humble blogger was in attendance for the festivities, which could be described as alternately fascinating and disgusting.
Sadly, Bickel failed to hit the mark, pooping out at 175, still an impressive mark. Check out the video below, if only to see the chow master in his Cookie Monster shirt.
