The chickens are fine dude - they just cant fly no mo.

If they were factory-farmed, they likely couldn't fly in the first place.

This kind of 'competition' is gross.

Special Japanese connection to nature helps Kobayashi understand how to eat and become one with chickens.

Hooter's is sure to not allow him entry on Wednesday's all you can eat wing night for $9.99.

"Competitive eating" is both gross and pointless. Offensive, actually.

Tower, this is Kobayashi Air 337, number one at the departure end of the runway requesting clearance for take-off. Roger that Kobayashi Air 337 you are cleared for take-off. Great prize for his accomplishment!

I love the rules at this event: If you heave, you leave. From what I read, he almost lost a load. What's gross is I heard he just tapped his throat a couple times and swallowed it all back down. AttaBoy!!

Makes you think twice as carnivores how we've led the world to dubious 'championships' as this.

337 chicken wings.

The average weight of a chicken wing is 29-30 grams. Supposing he didn't eat the feather light bone, he consumed approx. 8.5 kilograms of meat and 20557 calories in 30 minutes.

To load the digestive system with 8.5 kilograms of meat in 30 minutes would kill and average person, or can sicken even a lion, as an adult lion weighting 200 kilograms eat only 5, or max. 7 kilograms (only the real huge males) of meat one day, but not in 30 minutes.

One guy downs 337 chicken wings. Sounds like a pig to me. I'll bet 337 kids in poverty-stricken areas around this world would just love to eat one chicken wing.

And there were others in this pig-out eating contest so there are that many more chicken wings that went down the tubes ...

What a waste ...

Only in Japan and the USA, two countries who have contributed to the world culture with overeating competitions. It is disgusting and grotesque. At the same moment when people are starving, people in the USA and Japan are paid big prizes for stuffing themselves with food they do not need.

With him not able to compete in hot dog competition due to contractual conflicts, he seemed to have turned to chicken now. Whatever makes you happy!

Not if you're a chicken.

Wonder if he eats amounts like that when non competing.

If so, I guess he must be Number 1 customer of a certain Fried Chicken chain we all know!

Looks like at least 11 people don't like being reminded of where their food comes from.

I have semi-vegetarian friends who say they only meat from animals which they killed themselves. Reading about this gross "competitive eating" contest, that rule seems very sensible to me.

Impressive!

I wonder if he has a noticeable belly after this?
