Competitive eating champ Kobayashi eats 7.5 lbs of turkey in 10 minutes

I love that Kobayashi Takeru shows off his body in a tank top while eating 7.5 lbs of turkey in 10 minutes. It seems he’s now focused on using social media to get “closer” to his fans: on UStream and Facebook. It’s a proud moment for Japan: beating the US at food gluttony while seducing Amerika with exhibitionism. This a big win for Team Japan!

I am starting to watch the series Sekaiichi Hatsukoi. It’s a Boys Love anime about first love by the creator of Junjou Romantica. BL is basically man-on-man (or girlish male adolescent-on-adolescent) romance written by and for women. Oddly, I learned about it from my male cosplay friend, Bangin Sensei. He claims he cosplays BL stories only as “fan service” for his female otaku audience. Really?

Is Mrs Gingrich a man?

Seeing Mrs Gingrich looking happy, of course, makes me happy. What a lovely Republican presidential primary season we’ve been having. So many lunatics to love. I am still waiting until we are introduced to Mrs Herman Cain. Til then, I can only revel in Mrs G’s style: sort of a midwestern drag queen ideal: platinum hair, conservative suit, expensive jewels, and pride in her man. Even her name, Callista, evokes maximum flourish.
