1. It's good to see that funny headlines can get a story green-lighted, regardless of the story having little to no worthwhile content.

2. Is it the soup that's lowering the risk of breast cancer in these Japanese women. Or is it the lack of breasts on Japanese women?

Nothing like a good bowl of Miso and some sushi. Yum.

I second that emotion.

As Dan Quayle once said, "Soup is good food".
2003-06-18 01:43:33 PM

I've been farking for 2 years now, so the headlines rarely make me laugh out loud anymore... but this one did.
2003-06-18 01:45:08 PM
mmmmm Bear curd.

A doctor who treated survivors of Hiroshima came to a similar conclusion; patients who had miso soup as a regular part of their diet had a lower incidence of cancer.
2003-06-18 01:45:18 PM
In related news, miso soup enemias loosen stool.
2003-06-18 01:45:24 PM

/ yum...loves brests....
2003-06-18 01:47:54 PM

2003-06-18 01:48:25 PM
No, it's The Rapists. Otherwise, he couldn't reply with "That's *Therapists* "
2003-06-18 01:48:49 PM

2003-06-18 01:49:05 PM

2003-06-18 02:00:52 PM
I don't like Miso soup... just plain salty.

2003-06-18 02:02:26 PM

2003-06-18 02:19:04 PM
best headline evar.
2003-06-18 02:20:40 PM
Turning to other news, McDonalds has reported today that consumption of two or more big macs with Xtra large fries has indeed cut down the on the incidents of bowel and prostate cancer in men, but only if consumed with two or more fruit pies. Spokeperson, Wendy King of McDonalds attributes this startling news to "IZOFLAVOURS" found only in McDonalds hamburgers.
2003-06-18 02:22:24 PM
One of the best headlines I have ever read here.

I am feeblessly trying to supress the laughter so my co-workers don't realize I'm procastinating...

Isn't it funny how you laugh harder when you're trying NOT to laugh...

I am so getting fired...
2003-06-18 02:23:56 PM
I can hear Luther Campbell calling his attorney right now. He's got nothing else going.
2003-06-18 02:24:02 PM
"The soup contains fermented soy paste along with other ingredients including seaweed, bean curd and vegetables."

Yup, you pretty knew it had to taste like crap in order to be good for you.

When the hell is beer going to cure something?
2003-06-18 02:26:45 PM
I wonder what Kikkoman has to say about this...
2003-06-18 02:27:28 PM

thanks for setting him straight. at least someone got it.
2003-06-18 02:29:52 PM
Miso soup is teh yum.

Seriously, though. Americans need to look at things like this. We've got some of the worst food-related health problems in the world, even though we don't eat much worse than other countries. The Japanese eat foods loaded in salt and MSG, and don't keel over on general principle. The Italians eat enough cheese and pasta to give an elephant a coronary, yet have far lower instances of heart problems than we do. So obviously someone's doing SOMETHING right, and we need to figure out what it is.

In the meantime, this just gives me an excuse to eat more sushi. If Japanese food cuts down on breast cancer, presumably it inhibits other cancers as well. Ah, sweet, sweet tamago...
2003-06-18 02:32:35 PM
hot and sour, miso.... goddamn, someone go make me some soup.
2003-06-18 02:33:25 PM
me love you long time.

you party?
2003-06-18 02:42:30 PM
In the McDonalds in Hawaii you can order bowels of yaki soba noodles. Why don't we have good crap like that in the local McDonalds?

Then again they like spam sushi in Hawaii. You won't see me begging for that stuff.
2003-06-18 02:45:58 PM
If you eat McDonald's, you are going to die.

If you eat miso soup, you are still going to die.

Maybe McMiso?
2003-06-18 02:47:33 PM
When the hell is beer going to cure something?

I heard that dark beers contain flavinoids which are a powerful antioxidant. So yes, beer does cure cancer! I'd better get me some more beer. Can't be too safe.

Mostly I like saying flavinoid cause it sounds cool.
