Sonya Thomas Can Eat You

I'm not a big fan of competitive eating. Personally, I find it disrepectful of the food, but that's just me. I don't begrudge those who participate. It's with that preamble that I mention that 100-pound Sonya Thomas* once again has eaten her rivals under that table by winning the annual Thanksgiving Invitational, a turkey eating competition. She ate over 4 pounds of bird in about 12 minutes and took away the $2500 first prize.

*BTW, am I the only one who thinks the practice of labeling competitive Asian women "The Black Widow" is a bit troubling?
