Kobayashi

DOMINATES Wing Bowl --

168 Chickens Can't Cross Road

Kobayashi DOMINATES the Wing Bowl
Takeru Kobayashi
is gearing up to poop out the remains of 168-and-a-half chickens ... after putting on one of the GREATEST competitive eating displays of all time.

Kobayashi WOLFED DOWN 337 chicken wings at Wing Bowl 20 in Philadelphia ... defeating Jonathan "Super" Squibb and Bill "El Wingador" Simmons.

After the competition, Kobayashi told reporters he could probably take down another 100 wings.

Takeru -- the former world hot dog eating champ -- walked away with the new Wing Bowl record and a check for $20,000 (that's $59 per wing).

Clucking amazing.

Is that 337 whole wings or 337 wing sections (i.e., split into a drummette section and a flat section)? The video/pictures look like wing sections. If it's 337 wing sections, then that's not 168 chickens.

These crazy competitive eaters are probably killing themselves.

This article is almost as stupid as the eating contest, or whatever that nonsense may be described as, itself. Does one steak equal "half a cow", too?

To all the folks getting pissy about the 168.5 chicken joke - It's a joke! This is TMZ, not the Wall Street Journal. Lighten up! :-)

Yet, in all that nitpicking, no one pointed out that you can't kill half a chicken.
