100 Pound Woman Wins Turkey Eating Contest
Well, this is not what I would have done today, but it seems like I ate about the same amount of turkey as she did.
It’s a question just begging to be asked: How much turkey can a person shove into their mouth in 12 minutes?
A group of competitive American eaters assembled at Artie’s Deli in New York on Wednesday to gobble down 10-pound roast turkeys and find out.
Eric “Badlands” Booker started quickly, ripping through two turkey breasts and establishing an eight-ounce lead after three minutes. As time ticked down and the competitors faced moister meat in the drumsticks and shoulders, Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, Chip Simpson and Tim Janus gained speed.
After 12 minutes, nearly all had stripped their bird to the bone.
After examining the scales, the judges announced a verdict: the 100-pound Thomas, of Alexandria, Va., had taken first prize, worth $2,500. Booker dropped to sixth place.
