Binga's Wingas in Portland, Maine

Could George Glum, the Maine native and eating champion known as "Garbage Gut," come out of retirement for the March 26/27 Binga's Wingas contest in Portland, Maine? Rumors are flying.

The event, which will take place on Friday evening, March 26, and Saturday afternoon, March 27, on Route 1 in Yarmouth, will feature some of the finest chicken wings available, and it is rumored that it will offer upward of $3,000 in prize money.

Eaters from the east coast already are making plans for the pilgrimage, and many are asking if the greatest Maine eater of all times, the Glutton Bowl contestant George Glum, will be testing his chops at the table once again.

"George is known for his iron gut and can eat almost anything," said Richard Shea. "He literally tested a wing-eating technique in which he consumed bones along with meat." Shea said Glum abandoned the technique, not because of the intestinal distress, but because the bones could not be chewed and this slowed the eating process.

This likely will be the greatest Maine eating event since Sonya Thomas ate 40-plus lobsters on the rocky shores of the Atlantic to set a world record.
