The Olympics captures the collective imagination as stories of perseverance inspire millions. Or maybe all that triumph helps you realize you could try to be a little nicer to Kirby from accounting. If Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu can do this, surely you have what it takes to finally agree to have that drink with Kirby some Friday after work. At least he’ll quit bugging you about it. Just one drink, Kirby, and no snacks.
We, too, have been wrapped up in the Olympic drama, much of which has been focused on out Team USA athletes Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy.
And while the latter will not depart South Korea with any medals around his neck, he’s still a winner. (Seriously, think about all those endorsements he’s snagged.)
But we find ourselves celebrating Gus Kenworthy for a slightly different reason today; exactly one year ago, the world was gifted this video of Gus eating a hotdog seductively.
