I love that these suited men are sharing a single yakisoba, and that the camera has caught them with all four chopstick pairs in action. This is how Japanese encounter the sacred.
I think the McDonalds fries help this guy’s hair stay so blonde. I love taking photos of people eating outdoors. Because they’re focused on eating, they seem more carefree and easier to document.
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!
Fashion, fetish, sport, or what? I love how world hot dog eating champ Kobayashi Takeru so gamely shows off his oral talents, his middrif, and his perversely cheerful spirit with the thumb up. As Matt says, this is a guy who makes very public his lack of gag reflex.
Is Japan sufficiently proud of this gamine ambassador of carnality?!
A true erotic athlete, Sato Masanobu, won a masturbation marathon with a winning time of 9 hours, 58 minutes. He credits Tenga and its 10 varieties for their help, and also says that his family is supportive of his competition. It would have been lovely to see his family at the medal ceremonies!
Japan is currently feeling insecure with the rise of China and India, but no country tops Japan in hot-dog eating, or in male masturbation. Congratulations, team Japan!
(Thanks tipster J-son).
Is he hot or not? World pizza-eating champion Kobayashi Takeru not only proudly focuses viewers’ attention on his tight stomach, but provides a rare come-hither gesture.
To review his Google Image search is to savor delinquent defiance with ever changing bleached and processed hair. Kobayashi’s riot of punk excess and competitive hedonism, his massive hot dog eating, and his all-American image making is alluring and repulsive.
So many questions arise. What is it about classic American food that lends itself so easily to who-can-eat-more contests? Can Americans not compete with Japanese in our most popular national sports? Is Kobayashi a good or bad representative of Japan. And finally, is he hot or not? What do the readers say?
You can see he charmed at least one Alabama member of the collegiate royal family.
Some other fun facts: his arch-rival is Joey Chestnut, he’s eaten 59 hot dogs in 10 minutes, and 5 and 3/4 P’zones (cross between a pizza and calzone) in 6 minutes, competitive food eating involves “jaw capacity and stomach capacity.”
