Sixteen muscly maids put up quite a fight at the Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers’ (CLLAW) ninth annual event this Friday at Joe’s Bar on the Near North Side. Attendees were given fake money, “CLLAWBUX,” which they used to bribe the emcee and judges—in hopes that their favorite brawny broad would be crowned victor. But in the end, Connie Vict out-muscled Armageddon to take home the championship sash, crown, and trophy. See our photos of the event below.
