BUFFALO, N.Y. » Miki Sudo may be small, but she rules the roost when it comes to scarfing chicken wings.

The 115-pound woman from Las Vegas chowed down 178 wings in 12 minutes at the U.S. Professional Wing Eating Championship in Buffalo on Sunday.

Michelle Lesco of Tucson, Ariz., came in second. Five-time champion Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas, of Alexandria, Va., came in third.

Last year's winner, pro eater Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, was a no-show. In 2012, he devoured a record 191 chicken wings.

Sudo turned pro on the eating circuit in April. She also won Saturday's Buffet Bowl Contest featuring Buffalo food classics, including beef on weck. That's a roast beef sandwich on a kummelweck roll.

Obamacare will provide coverage for everyone, regardless of pre-existing conditions. Why are there insurance companies involved in this scam? Beats me, since insurance companies will never profit from it. The government will have to ultimately make direct payments to the providers. Get ready for more TRILLIONS in debt. Why the government decides to play in the private sector is beyond me. I think it's a power or control thing.
