All you can eat
So apparently the world championship for karaoke singing (you knew there was one, right?) was in Moscow this year. Some guy from New Mexico won (Usher: "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love," if you want to know). The prize: a million dumplings.
It seems wrong, somehow, that the gastroenterologist was only the runner-up.
There's video somewhere, but it's not that interesting. At least not compared to what I was imagining, which was that the guy finishes his song and, instead of applause, he's promptly buried under an avalanche of the entire doughy prize at once.
Possibly this idea was prompted by vague memories of this cartoon.
(If you have ambivalent feelings about Eastern European dumplings in general, perhaps you can relate to the kreplach joke.)
