Kobayashi reports jaw issues in NYC last month

Kobayashi announces in his latest blog entry that he had difficulty with his jaw during his attempt to break the IFOCE fruitcake record in New York City on December 26. A section of the blog translated by Google follows:

In deciding to eat is not prepared to break the jaw

And there was a conflict while eating.

I do believe that can be! And so it is

The embarrassing truth is conflict.

Food was like clay.

To assert that the food is bad for the jaw before.

    I have a feeling that his speech is really this formal, and that it’s not the translation’s fault in turning it into a haiku.

    As much as I adore Koby, he is not doing himself any favors by bringing up the jaw issue whenever he fails to accomplish an eating goal, even if it is all true.

    I believe there was (or is) a legitimate issue with his jaw. But if so, there was not a worse food he could eat than fruitcake —- an unwise choice of a food to challenge someone’s record in.

    It would really have been awful (for Koby) if Sonya had been eating with him, because she WOULD HAVE broken her record, and at the risk of sounding like Luther, Koby would have been devastated losing to a woman. (He did anyway, in a way, because her record still stands.)
