Nabb1: scottydoesntknow: 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.

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.


Don't be so outrageous.

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.

Of all the crimes he has committed over the years, it's Sushigate that will cost him his job? That really is good sushi right there.

Yeah, but did he have to be so black while eating it?

I heard that Obama asked for fancy mustard.  Out here in REAL America, we put catsup on our sushi!

I admire Obama for eating local specialties and seeking them out at a restaurant renowned for them (rather than being served them at official dinners).

Other recent presidents didn't seem to have any sense of taste. Clinton liked McDonalds while GWB was reported to sit at his desk snacking on low-fat hotdogs (bletch).

Nobody is upset. Just some Farkers making assumptions. It's actually quite revealing.

Wrong.

What Obama eating sushi may look like
 
2014-04-23 04:14:36 PM
This is why people have a tough time relating to Mister President, because how many people can afford to go out and eat a $400 dinner, really? If I'm not mistakening the Japanese culture cowardly use nets and not hooks.

These guys know the proper use of sushi bait.

Diogenes: scottydoesntknow: What does The Onion have to do with it? Why the 'stupid' tag?

/Wish I could eat there

Apparently fluff now equals satire.

I think subby ate some bad sushi and is hallucinating.


I wonder if subby is actually making a dig at NBC for running such a stupid article?

Skleenar: Lt. Cheese Weasel: You should be outraged. You and I paid for the meal and we didn't get a bite.

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.


Really, no one else noticed this one?  I'm sure I'm missing a bunch.

You'd be wrong. Good sushi, really good sushi, is not eaten to fill up. It's like sex for your mouth that feels as good as sex for your other parts. It's an amazing food.

Also, I garuntee that the prime minister of Japan and the president of the US did not sit down at the best sushi restaurant in the world and order the basic set.

Why the outrage?

Sushi can't get much better than "good."  "Good" is as good as sushi gets.

Remember, we're talking about a food whose median is "Boy, I'm glad that didn't make me violently ill."
