Rapmaster2000: ELITIST!  Here in Real America we call sushi "bait" and every time someone mentions sushi I always mention how I call sushi "bait".

We are very witty and original in Real America.

Hold the phone, Kemosabe! That's why I invented Gringo Sushi with Sumatran blackened beef, wrapped in Missouri Wonder Bread, deep fried and slathered in Ranchito Dressin'. It's off the hook bananas, this train doesn't stop until Flavortown.

The cost of one meal there is more than what 40% of Americans earn in one week.

I watched Pacific Rim the other day and I really couldn't figure out why they didn't just take all the effort they put into giant robots and walls and instead put a nuclear-powered grinder above the "portal" that all these things are coming out of. No destruction of cities, and free sushi!

/That's "on-topic", right?

Yes.  Any time Barry Soebarkah O'Hitler does anything at all is cause for the full measure of outrage.  Come on, you should know by now how this works.

Rincewind53: "Good sushi", from what is fairly universally deemed the best sushi restaurant in the world, is a bit of an understatement. Jiro's restaurant is legendary.

Absolutely.  The shrimp-in-chief should have had takos instead of taking our ficsal monies and wasting it on overpriced asian food.  I'm pretty sure he's clinikally insane.  This little photo op is politically yellow, tailing onto the popularity of one of the world's most renown documentaries for some hipster cred.  What's wrong with eating some good-old american deep fried toroids? (donuts, for you libtards). I'm sure the Roe-v-Wade crowd is eating this up.  It's a real poke in the eye for REAL Americans to see this foreign folderol.  It just makes me feel crabby.

When he set the precedent of being the first President in U.S. history to travel internationally on the taxpayer's dime, he opened himself up to this criticism.

You joke, but I went to a sushi restaurant that used crushed Doritos (nacho cheese) in a couple of their rolls. Tried one and it was pretty good.

I'm currently stuck in a job that I don't particularly care for, and that documentary really helped me make peace with it. It's such a quiet, beautiful film.

That fish he ate, President Obama, was more than likely caught in US waters, sold at auction, then flown to Japan. They get all the good stuff. You and I get farm raised tilapia, but no, really it's grouper. Really, it is. I think. That's what the boss said it was.

There are many in Japan who believe Doritos have the highest level of umami of just about any known food.

Why is everyone so upset about this headline? I think submitter was saying this is a trivial bit of nonsense for a news organization like MSNBC, not that it's an outrage. At least, that's what I got out of it.

I might be inclined to agree, but you are making the assumption that a Fark headline is sane, rational, and relates to the article it links to.

That's a rather big assumption.
