Every single person on this planet has one special gift. One talent. One thing that sets them apart from all others as unique. For Taipei City Councilor Chiu Wei-chieh, it’s breaking chopsticks with his butt.

Chiu Wei-chieh broke a total of 53 chopsticks with his butt cheeks after losing a bet that a recent election to recall the Kaohsiung City Mayor would get no more than 400,000 yes votes.

Before the June 6 recall election, the “Can’t Stop This Party” councilor Chiu Wei-chieh wagered that if there were several tens of thousands of votes over his prediction he would break several chopsticks with his rear end.

Election Results: Mayor Han was ousted with 939,090 votes in favor of the recall.

Bring in the chopsticks!

Butt Cheek Chopstick Bustin’ Fact: Chiu Wei-chieh is capable of breaking up to 5 chopsticks at a time with his patent-pending technique.

Observe his gift in action:

Thoughts and Prayers: Chiu succeeded in meeting his target of 53 broken chopsticks despite being stabbed by the broken, splintered end of one that was a little uncooperative. We wish him well in his recovery.
