Skinny first-timer Jonathan "Super Squibb" Squibb polished off 203 chicken wings and some heavyweight competition to win the 17th Wing Bowl yesterday, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Squibb, who beat favorites like 500-pound "Damaging Doug" Canavin, will take home a brand new Mini Cooper and crown of miniature chickens.

"Nobody believed in me but my family, but I knew I could do it,” said Squibb, who munched 23 more wings than the nearest runner-up. The New Jersey native, currently “in career transition,” plans to come back next year to defend his crown at the contest, created 17 years ago to give Philadelphia's title-starved sports fans something to cheer about.
