People come up to me in the street all the time and want their picture taken with me… They are all really excited to see a real-life Superman in the Philippines.”

Clark Kent fanboy bread, by Chris-Rachael Oseland.
Geek cook Chris-Rachael Oseland of kitchenoverlord.com has come up with another awesome nerd-themed recipe: bread that displays the Superman "S" symbol, just like Clark Kent would eat for his hero sandwich.
