Weekend read: Of mozzarella sticks and marathons

My recommend read for this weekend is – horror of horrors – a Gawker article. Caity Weaver's article documenting her "feat" of eating 32 mozzarella sticks in the course of a little more than 12 hours is a great bit of funny writing. The level of tension and disgust may be out of all proportion to the action being described, but that only serves to heighten the humour.

What if I told you that mozzarella sticks never had to end? That for $10, you could eat for free (for $10) for the rest of your natural life? That there exists a spot in the space-time continuum in which it is always Friday? That there are free refills on all Slushes™ excluding Red Bull® branded items?http://gawker.com/endless-appetizers-mark-beginning-of-our-collective-n-1601076939
