Congratulations Jack Mackenroth


The HIV positive designer who dropped out of the 2007 Project Runway competition due to a staph infection competed in a number of swimming events in the just completed 2009 World Outgames in Copenhagen.

The swimming events were the most hotly contested at the games and drew the most interest.

Mackenroth came home with eight medals, including golds in the 50 meter freestyle and 4 by 50 meter freestyle relay as well as four silvers and two bronzes.

Read all about it at his blog.

It hardly seems fair that in addition to his many and diverse talents he gets to look like that, but the Deli would nonetheless like to extend an offer of lunch on us at Mr. Mackenroth’s convenience. Lunch, dinner, whatever.

Scroll halfway down for more Jack.

    Is it just me, or do both heterosexual & homosexual men prefer perfect?

    Yeah, one could say girls do that, too.

    I mean, my sex idol is Lewis Black. Really.

      I think maybe men are more stuck on the visuals.

      You can sort of admire perfect without preferring it. I kind of prefer next door, homespun – hopefully not of oatmeal gray though. A lfew laughs and some good meals are ultimately more satisfying than a perfect body.

        I caught the Paul Goodman reference. I actually love that book of poems.

          Shoot. I wish I had the collected poems around here. I love the one about a hustler with a boner at the airport. It ends with something about thank god for a sign of life at O’Hare.
