Today in Extraordinarily Odd

Ricky Labit, a 6-foot-3 disabled offshore worker in Louisiana has claimed that he was overcharged and then banned by a Chinese buffet because he ate too much food. They even banned a relative of his probably because the relative was fat too. How do we know that it was because of fat? Labit claimed that the waitress brought his bill to the table and said, 'Y'all fat, and y'all eat too much,' which may well be true. I just can't imagine that someone who would say that wouldn't be at least mildly porcine themselves. The thing is, it was one of those Chinese buffets where all the food is deep fried and then soaked in some kind of fluorescent corn starch based syrup. Labit can only benefit from not being allowed to return to the buffet. It will probably help him reduce his girth. That aside, the theme here is fat people being shut out. Shut out of society because they are unpleasantly large. I think we can all agree on the fact that THAT is the real issue here; unpleasant largeness. [source]

"Stock" and the names of three banks were among the most frequently searched words on Google China last year, with "sex" not in the top 10 list. Apparently the word “sex” is a high rating word in most countries. Like, you’d imagine it would be high up in South American nations like Argentina. In China though, the kids are into money and banks. Because if you have money you can buy sex. This is proof that China really has managed to form itself into a well oiled nation of efficiency. Something like the Olympics is going to make it really chaotic and mess up the proverbial living room. China really is going to have a nervous breakdown. I’m counting the days. [source]
