but then how are they going to get that crunchiness? Chow mein noodles? I'm guessing water chestnuts would freeze rock-hard, so they're out. Just throw in a 'Big' apple.

uber humper: Your Blog Sucks: FTA: A liberal ice-cream company no one ever associates with racism, hate or unfairness decided to have some fun with the connection. That's all.

I find it offensive that people consider him noteworthy; if he was of another race it wouldn't make news. Because he is Asian he's special? Without race he belongs in a side note. He make news because he is an Asian American. Without his race, he's not noteworthy? Right? Isn't that racist?

Like all bullshiat, all raciest shiat, this will be uncovered as a farce.



Ummm...is there some reason you quoted me? Because I'm not getting the connection. My point was to contradict the line quoted from the article, which was patently false. Ben and Jerry's might be tree-hugging hippies but that doesn't mean they never sparked controversy before.

Your point, apparently, was to set a record for using the word "race" or "racist" as many times as possible in a three-line post.

A Japanese-themed ice cream would have needed 3 kinds of fish in it. Ref: Iron Chef.

reading the list of ingredients, I'm surprised nobody's offended that the base of this stuff is essentially WHITE.

Wish I was some where else, too. I started the Saturday with honorable expectations, then I opened a bottle of wine a few hours ago, then opened another. I'll have a hangover in the morning. You won't. And I'll only have to show for it is a few Fark threads. You're the winner, this time.

Fortune cookie bits sound damned fine to me, and hardly racist. It's gotta beat the potato chip pieces in "Late-night Snack". Those just don't hold up well to the processing and freezing at all.

Mad_Radhu: Even if it was done lovingly, can you imagine what would happen if you had an ice cream named after an African American player with watermelon in it?


Show me am American player who came from Africa.

Now water mellon ice cream with swirls of grape drank syrup and bits of fried chicken for a Colts player with a 45 on his jersey?
That sounds good.

At my work, during each year's Black History Month, there is a Black History Luncheon -- put together by a committee comprised almost completely of my African American Colleagues, with a smidgeon of white-guilt hangers-on who brag to their boss and friends about their involvement but get laughed about it by all involved parties..

This year, just like the past 10, the menu has been fried chicken, collard greens, watermelon, etc.

On any other day, accuse them of liking fried chicken and you're a racist. But on their day to shine and smash stereotypes, well ...

OMFG, I haven't seen this much racial touchiness in a long time. Fortune cookie chunks are racist? What's-his-name got fired for the "chink in the armor" headline, which Jeremy Lin himself was very gracious about.

Calm down everyone. We're all too hyper-sensitive.

1. Fortune cookies are not Chinese
2. Since when is Chinese a race?
 
2012-02-26 03:17:44 PM
Oh for life's sake, can we stop letting PC concerns ruin good things just because someone touchy somewhere MIGHT get offended? That sounds like a great flavor, and is it any more racist that fortune cookies existing in the first place?

Seriously, there are a lot of things in life that aren't PC. War, poverty, famine - but that doesn't mean we can just turn them off. People need to accept that no one has a fundamental right to go their entire life without being offended in some way, and our society will grow more free because of it.

Is it racist that Chinese people work at Chinese food places, too?

And that you get fortune cookies pretty much exclusively from Chinese food places?

Not to mention, aren't fortune cookies pretty much American anyway? Do they actually have any roots in actual Chinese cuisine?

Actually they're Japanese in origin.

Really? San Francisco is in Japan?

As far back as the 19th century, a cookie very similar in appearance to the modern Fortune cookie was made in Kyoto, Japan, and there is a Japanese temple tradition of random fortunes, called omikuji. (new window)

Do they still give out fortune cookies in Japan? Well, probably in the Chinese restaurants.

I think a fundamental problem with this reasoning is that Jeremy Lin isn't "Chinese". He's American. He's a Harvard graduate and a pro athlete. If he were of Irish heritage, would it be cool to put some Lucky Charms and Whiskey in an ice cream in his honor?

That sounds pretty damn tasty (assuming they could keep the cookie pieces crisp).

In other "stays-crispy" news, try putting mini pretzel sticks in your chicken soup instead of crackers. They don't get soggy as fast as crackers, and the salt doesn't dissolve as quickly.
