Matthew L Bobiak sweeps Clash of the Clucks

What the cluck?! The champ just winged it!

Who knew Long Island loins were laced with such precious pixie dust, resulting in superstar spawn including Billy Joel, Harvey Milk, Walt Whitman and its newest It-Boy, Matthew L. Bobiak.

Gloating grease-stained and triumphant in the pic above above, the full-time science nerd/part-time chicken-chomping champ studies at Stony Brook University. New to competitive nom nom nomming, this  fowl player entered and won his first chicken wing eating contest last Sunday at the Velvet Lounge, downing a gristly 65 wings in 15 minutes…

Ok, so he’s not quite Takeru Kobayahi (who battles a bear in a hot dog eating contest via this awesome link), but the event qualified Bobiak for the Clash of the Clucks finals, a competition sponsored by Good Times Magazine.

“I just showed up to eat,” says the humble hulkster of his win. “I was hungry…”

Bobiak, a 3MT IGERT doctoral candidate at SBU, enjoys fly fishing, homebrewing and entering hi-caloric contests on a whim. His secret to pulverizing all that pokpok?

“You can’t chew too much. You just have to swallow.”
