Dan Pashman thinks there are better ways to get pizza from your plate into your belly, so he took to Patsy’s newest restaurant in Brooklyn to see how his unconventional techniques fare with Patsy (begrudgingly) and his diners (enthusiastically).

Watch now as competitive eater Crazy Legs Conti demonstrates how he was able to take down 125 chicken wings in 10 minutes. (Pay attention, Richard Sherman, and learn from the best):
