The contenders are usually Porthos, fellow dude Kohji, Edmond Dantes, and myself. This usually is just all talk as sanity usually prevails and we realize this would be a terrible idea. Well, that's where the power of long karaoke sessions (I'm on a boat mother eff'er) and tons of booze comes to play! This led our journey to KyoChon - a fantastic Korean fried chicken joint in Koreatown. The chicken was so delicious (we started with 4 large orders!) we wanted more and more which led to the phenomenal idea of the Dude vs Dude wing off.
Interviewing the hostess, waitress, and even cooks, Kohji was the favorite to win it all - it's the craziness in the eyes I've been told. But, my man Porthos claimed chicken wings was what he eats the quickest/most.
With nervous anticipation we had to lay down the rules.
1) 25 wing/drummies with half orders of hot and half orders of chili garlic.

After about 10 minutes, Porthos saw the white flag and had one wing left. Through shear courage, Kohji buzzed through three wings in about a minute and we were down to one wing a piece. But this my friend was the day of Porthos and he would not be beaten. He killed the last one and took home the first ever Dude vs Dude crown.
The press were all over Porthos and with tears in his eyes and chicken extruding from his pores he was heard saying: "I've just shown you my kung fu...man my jaw hurts." Kohji being a true competitor vowed to be ready for the next battle - although he knew his downfall was the pitchers of beer we drank earlier. Great times and funny how all the cooks came out to take pictures.
Up next...dumplings. Who wants some?
