Kaiju Big Appetite Takeru Kobayashi schooled a bunch of fat Philly wing-eaters today, taking home the Golden Bone at the 20th annual Wing Bowl after gavaging down a record-setting 337 chicken wings in 30 minutes.
The previous record of 255 was set by Jonathan “Super” Squibb, a three-time champ who fell to Kobayashi along with favorite son Bill “El Wingador” Simmon, a five-peater.
“He was great,” said Squibb of his insatiable rival. “If I was going to lose, I was going to lose fantastically.” Squibb’s consolation prize was setting a personal best of 271 wings.
After the sauce settled, Kobayashi, who took home $20,000 for his forthcoming intestinal trouble, told reporters he had room for 100 more.
(Politico) — First Lady Michelle Obama will help celebrate the second anniversary of the Let’s Move program at a Fort Worth, Texas-area Olive Garden next week.
According to the White House, the first lady will hold a roundtable discussion on February 9th at the chain with local parents who have made a commitment to healthier eating in their homes and communities.
While the Olive Garden is better known for its bottomless pasta, the appearance is due to a commitment by the restaurant’s parent company to offer healthier options for children. Darden, the corporation which owns Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Longhorn Steakhouse, signed a legal agreement last year to offer healthier side dishes and better food options for children’s menus.
Without much fanfare, the Department of Transportation (DOT) enacted a rule which requires airlines to ensconce all government taxes and fees in a single total advertised price with the fare. For example, if you purchase a $350 plane ticket with $50 of taxes and fees, the DOT is demanding that the airline advertise the price as $400. Airline passengers pay over a dozen taxes and fees on any given airplane ticket, but the government doesn’t want us to know that. The rule was finalized last April, but only took effect last week.
The timing of this rule is very fortuitous. This week, Congress will finalize negotiations for a long-term FAA funding bill. This bill authorizes the collection of all taxes – including taxes on aviation fuel, domestic and international ticket taxes, and cargo –directed to the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, which provides the bulk of FAA funding. As usual, Democrats want to spend more money on wasteful projects, and are all too hungry to increase aviation taxes. What better way to leverage tax increases than by forcing airlines to hide their cost and to shoulder the blame for the perceived higher price tag at the top!
Blazing Cat Fur has a hilarious story about the CBC filing a copyright suit against YouTube because of an embarrassing juxtaposition that Sun TV put together during an interview with the CBC mouthpiece, Kirstine Stewart, who was propagrandizing about the great social benefits of the public funded CBC programming.
If only our media was as ballsy and intelligent
Update: Blazing Cat Fur getting harassed by Canadian Government

The Santa Barbara Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying those involved with a recent rash of vandalism in the Mesa area, including a Wells Fargo ATM that has been damaged on several occasions.
The most recent event occurred Wednesday when a property owner at Shoreline Plaza, 1819 Cliff Drive, reported that a Wells Fargo ATM had been spray-painted and the screen smashed.
“Class War” was written in black spray paint and referenced the Occupy Oakland movement, according to Sgt. Riley Hardwood. The wall of the CVS pharmacy at 1815 Cliff Drive was also damaged.
Harwood said a person of interest was caught on a surveillance camera in the area around 2:30 a.m.
Earlier that morning, officers were dispatched to Santa Barbara Bank & Trust at 1960 Cliff Drive after a carpet cleaning driver discovered the front glass doors of the bank had been shattered and the ATM screens damaged. At 4:10 a.m., police officers were dispatched to Starbucks at 1990 Cliff Drive after a food delivery employee arrived and saw that the front glass doors were smashed and cracked, Harwood said.
The ATM involved has been vandalized three times in January, according to police. The screens were shattered and messages sprayed on the exterior CVS wall on Jan. 10, 12 and 24.
Here’s what Schultz opined after interviewing Democrat state senator David Schapira of Arizona about Republican state lawmakers pushing legislation that would end collective bargaining by public employee unions:
This is America being transformed right in front of our eyes. I don’t, you know what? I did that promo, I need two shows, I need my own network! And that’s not going to be enough! … Am I wrong? Am I overreacting? I’m not angry about it. I mean, well, yeah, I am. But I mean, I’m almost speechless after what I just heard. (referring to interview with Schapira) It’s in every back yard. This is why I went home to do my promos on MSNBC to illustrate, you don’t have to go very far to find empty containers. You don’t have to go very far to find your school district being gutted by the righties. You don’t have to go very far before you better be packing iron ’cause we ain’t got any cops left.
(what? first he wants to stop gun sales, register all guns, repo all guns, get rid of all guns? now he is telling all the liberals to get a gun?)
Leading international news organizations rely on MEMRI for translations of Arabic and Iranian media which expose the bare naked truth about Islam that pressure groups like CAIR try to hide from the West.
Dougie says, “Until there is a Muslim equivalent, we are stuck with MEMRI.” Problem is, there will never be a comparable Islamic source willing to expose the kind of anti-Israeli and anti-American hatred and propaganda fed to children and adults on a daily basis on Muslim TV.
Read about the above and so much more about those islamics and islamic groups that want to kill us HERE.
