This is sickening as hell! Not only for the nutjob (pun there!) who cooked and served his own genitals, but more so for the idiots who paid and ate his genitals! But then if you are going to transgender yourself from male to female, this is one way to pay for the operation. And again, only in Japan!
“Please retweet. I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen…. I will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location.”
On Sunday, April 13, Tokyo illustrator Mao Sugiyama (who goes by the nickname “HC”), publicly seasoned and braised his own genitals on a portable gas cartridge burner, and then served them to five eager diners who each paid about $250 for the meal (a sixth was a no-show). The genitals had been returned to the asexual Sugiyama, frozen and double-bagged in plastic, following elective genital removal surgery on his 22nd birthday in early April.
After initially considering eating them himself, Sugiyama offered the meal on Twitter in mid-April to the first person willing to pay 100,000 yen (about $1,250). But after the notoriety that his tweet caused, he organized a public banquet, dubbed “Ham Cybele – Century Banquet,” at the “Asagaya Loft A” event space in the Suginami Ward of Tokyo. “Century” in Japanese is a homophone for the Japanese word for “genitals”; “Ham Cybele” refers to the Anatolian mother goddess, prefixed with an appropriate word for tough meat to create a phrase whose initials match Sugiyama’s artist name of HC.
The day before the event Sugiyama tweeted, “I’m starting to thaw them out,” and posted this photo (warning: not for the squeamish). On the day of the event a crowd of about 70 mostly twenty-somethings gathered, five to a table, to listen to a piano recital and panel discussion before the dinner.
Although only five servings of the genitals were available, the other diners were served alternate beef- and crocodile-based dishes. The cooking was done by Sugiyama himself, dressed as a chef, under the supervision of a licensed food preparation specialist.

Well, see how it goes for the travelers. But I bet we will still hear and read about some horror stories from the elderly. And why age 75? Does not say, but are they going to check birth certificates?
TSA eases airport screening for elderly travelers
A pilot airport screening program designed to make the security line easier for elderly fliers is going national.
Since March, TSA workers at airports in Chicago, Denver, Orlando and Portland, Ore., have been testing modified screening practices for passengers 75 and over. Elderly travelers at select checkpoints were allowed to keep shoes and light outerwear on during screening and could take a second pass through full-body scanners to clear anomalies. The measures mirror those instituted nationwide last summer for children 12 and under.
TSA on Friday announced an end to the pilot program and said it will roll out the rules at all U.S. airports throughout the summer. A specific implementation timetable was not released.
The changes will reduce, but not eliminate, enhanced pat-downs for the elderly, TSA said in a statement. Travelers will be asked to remove shoes and undergo a pat-down “if anomalies are detected during security screening that cannot be resolved through other means.”

Poor choice for a business name.
We know that “progressives” favor what they call “living constitutions,” governing documents that change easily to accommodate the changing tastes of voters. Sometimes they rely on judges to “breathe life” into the Constitution, as the Supreme Court did in 1965’s famous Griswold v. Connecticut.
But some also seem to be rooting for dead constitutions. On Thursday, an NPR interviewer had an interesting idea: “I have to say that when I talk to friends across the country, they look at this system in California and they say: well, why don’t they just throw out this [state] constitution that requires voters to approve everything that they do?” Jeremy Hobson asked Governor Jerry Brown (D).
One of Obama’s sons, who is probably living with his mother and does not and will not get a job.
At Front Page, Matthew Vadum is correct as regards Brett Kimberlin. As a result, Progressives and certain Democrats now face a bigger problem than you may have stopped to think about at this point.
Brett Kimberlin and the Hall of Fame of Leftist Terrorists
Someone asked me this morning, how did this guy get away with this for so long? The fact is, he got away with it because he had the cover to do it. He didn’t make the “Hall of Fame” on the Left because influential people didn’t know who and what he was, no matter how much they will repeat that myth, if asked about Brett Kimberlin today and in the future.
And because of who and what Brett Kimberlin is, they can’t simply throw him under the bus, not as easily as they might your run-of-the-mill political activist. He’s been around too long and has been too big a player on the Left for that simple solution. In short, Brett Kimberlin knows things.
In the past, he has been called narcissistic, not just by bloggers – Yid With Lid points out Brett Kimberlin’s narcissism in his post today.
I’m not a psychologist. I’m not going to claim I can make some diagnosis of Brett Kimberlin. But no one can deny that, if you’ve read enough past coverage of him, especially during his Speedway Bomber days, it contains words like narcissistic and worse, when it comes to personality types. I’ve read extremely disturbing opinions on whatever personality type he is attributed to legal professionals who have dealt with him. One can also easily begin with the book on Kimberlin by Mark Singer: “Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin”. This below is from a review at link above from Kirkus Reviews.
Singer is full of contrition, presenting himself as having been sucked into Kimberlin’s “narcissistic universe, a place far beyond the gravity-bound realities of politics, truth, and justice.” But instead of drowning in regret, the repentant author turns his book into a lively revenge tale. In the delightful final chapters he cleverly tricks Kimberlin into exposing his own mendacity. For politicos, journalists, or anyone who has ever been pulled into the distorted worldview of a dangerous smooth talker, the story of Brett Kimberlin is a valuable one, expertly unearthed and reported by Singer.
Whatever Brett Kimberlin thinks of Progressive politics, it seems a fair bet that, he cares far more about himself. That is not a man to go quietly into any good night, cut off from the lifeline that has sustained him all these years. If the Progressive movement – and it’s big money donors – drop a guy like Brett Kimberlin in a manner he doesn’t much care for, he will turn on them. And as much damage he may have done to this, or that individual and often small in proportion to the mass, activist on the Right, his home and power-base is on and of the professional left. Big picture, that’s where he can do the most damage going forward, not across the Right.
One classy Obama donor! But then, think about it, this idiot does fit in with Obama and the rest of his crooked regime.
Black clergy not at all happy with Obama!
Bishop Harry Jackson, senior pastor at Hope Christian Church, is leading a coalition of 176 religious leaders against President Barack Obama’s declared support for gay marriage and the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.
“We want to know whether he is going to use the bully pulpit of the presidential office to absolutely erase the image of biblical marriage from the face of the earth,” said Jackson at the Capitol on May 24.
“Voters need to know whether they have a friend or an assent, an enemy to an institution that God has ordained,” he added. “Some of us have taken his statements as a declaration of political war against the venerable institution of marriage.”
“In the African-American community, many people are saying they made him do that, we don’t understand why he did that,” said Jackson. “We don’t believe that really was the president’s intent. Others have given high fives in the backroom saying, ‘he got paid.’ We don’t really know what the intent of the president is except that we know that is not just an isolated incident. Some further action will follow.”
One thing about this, as Hamas is a terrorist organization, the USA can no longer fund the palestinian state. And would be illegal for Obama to bypass congress like he has done to far!
(Times of Israel) — Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal will meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to announce the formation of a new Palestinian unity government, Israel Radio reported on Saturday.
The two will commence consultations for establishing a joint government on Sunday, and within ten days they will announce its foundation.
Hamas leader Osama Hamdan said Fatah and Hamas representatives will meet in Cairo this week to discuss the composition of the government and the date Mashaal and Abu Mazen will meet.
In an interview with a Kuwaiti newspaper, Mashaal said that the events in Syria have affected relations between Iran and Hamas and Hezbollah but did not specify how.
He confirmed that the Hamas leadership left Damascus and is now dispersed between several countries.
Mashaal called on the US earlier on Saturday to stop hindering reconciliation between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.
Read the bottom line of this. You know that the Obama campaign will just ignore and not pay this bill.
NEWPORT BEACH — The city spent $35,043 on police officers when President Obama stopped in Corona del Mar in February for a campaign breakfast, and revenue officials have sent his campaign an invoice to recoup the costs.
City Manager Dave Kiff said the invoice was his idea.
“I think it is appropriate to treat it like a private event — if another private event that large and which required that much police presence occurred, we would bill the event sponsor,” he said in an email. “If the president was here on presidential business, we likely would not have billed for that.”
The invoice is dated May 10 and is due June 9.
The expenses include costs for a police lieutenant, sergeant, two officers, a reserve officer, a senior dispatch officer, a community service officer plus overtime. The breakdown of costs ranged from $12,203 for the police officer to $307 for the community service officer’s overtime, according to the document.
The memo was sent from the city’s Revenue Department to the Obama For America office in Chicago. As of late Thursday, there had been no response or payment, said Tara Finnigan, a Newport Beach spokeswoman.
The Feb. 16 breakfast was held at the Shore Cliffs home of Jeff and Nancy Stack. Entrance to the breakfast cost $2,500 per person, with a $10,000 photo reception and breakfast option and a $35,800 “greet + breakfast” option, according to the invitation.
Published reports stated that Obama raised $45 million in February and at least $8 million in six fundraisers in Los Angeles, San Francisco and at the Stack home.
An email and a telephone message sent to campaign workers seeking comment for this story were not immediately returned.
Invoices of this kind have been sent by other municipalities to political campaigns, but they are rarely paid, experts said.
