"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.

It probably was good sushi. It's the best sushi-ya in Japan and probably the entire world. That said, yes, this is a piece of fluff as news goes.

That was my first thought. I would be outraged by "good". I've never wanted to go to a restaurant so much in my life. I've had my problems with the man policies but up until now I kind of liked the dude. But now I hate 'em! I hate 'em so bad. I can't find the right word to express my hate for 'em.

NeverDrunk23: Is this news only because the right hasn't freaked over it and Fox News crying victim, or is it still too early for that?


Yeah, it is.  Actual new things to report on mostly come from real news agencies, it takes a few hours after something happens for the right's form of journalism to build its narrative.

That's what they do.  They take things that were already news, and they turn them into narratives.  It's actually fascinating to watch as insanity percolates into a story as Fox News reports on it.

No, I've gotten the feeling there are real writers working on this.  It's not a joke.  The narrative seems likely to be "President causes incident" or (more likely, since it reinforces the underlying stupid message) "Taxpayers pay for expensive Sushi"

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
