"It’s time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. And I don’t care what people are saying in Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day. This city will be a majority African-American city. It’s the way God wants it to be. You can’t have it no other way."
New Orleans Mayor – C. Ray Nagin
It’s the best quote of 2006– and will probably remain so– which is why there was a need for Imnotchocolate.com. Go there now and pick up your Chocolate City hat, t-shirt and bumper sticker. And don’t worry, the money doesn’t go towards rebuilding New Orleans or anything respectable like that. Hey, you can’t have it no other way.

There are some nice shots of Jack Black at I Watch Stuff! Here’s the set-up: "These are newish images from the comedy Nacho Libre, written and directed by Jared Hess of Napoleon Dynamite fame. If you think that’s a shirtless Jack Black playing a Mexican wrestler, you’re spot on." Delicious.
Meet Anpaman: a crime fighting cartoon superhero made entirely of sweet red bean paste. Strengths: He can fly, kick and punch. Plus his head is made of bread so he can always bake himself a new one as needed. Arch Nemesis: Baikinman aka Bacteria Man. He wants to destroy Anpaman with powerful kitchen mold. Other super hero sidekicks include : Tendonman (his head is a donburi rice bowl with shrimp tempura poking out of the top) and Tenmusu-chan (her head is a rice ball with shrimp tempura). With a weekly cartoon show and hoards of merchandise, Japanese kids can’t seem to get enough of Anpaman and his legion of savory superheroes.
To sum up: things that aren’t American are really weird.
Okay, so neither have these have actually been confirmed or anything, but I know which one I’m rooting for to be real.

Fort Worth: Officers break up fight between party goer and policewoman.
First, Tom Cruise’s former nanny debuts her tell-all expose, "You’ll Never Nanny In This Town Again," which reveals her former boss’s CIA-worthy contractual demands.
Then Jude and Sienna reportedly split, making it possible for nanny Daisy Wright to enjoy more passionless, needy sex with the British dandy. And if that weren’t enough, Wright may even get to relish in bed while Jude takes an immediate post-sex self-disgust shower.
Finally, Nanny McPhee, a British romp about a Nanny that changes one lucky family’s lives, premieres in theaters this week, to the delight of every ruddy-cheeked orphan from Londontown with narry a tuppence to his name. Most American kids, however, don’t give a s***.
