The Chicken Man

Last November, Barclay Prime server Alexander Tominsky consumed 40 rotisserie chickens in 40 days for reasons that were neither religious nor athletic nor psychologically sound. (If you count all the chickens he dreamed about during the process, he says, it was probably more like eating 300 fowl.) Tominsky’s chicken ingestion captured the attention of our city, culminating in a final chicken nosh session at the abandoned pier by Walmart for all to see. He doubts this could have happened anywhere but Philadelphia. We agree.
