WE HAVE LONG SUSPECTED THIS.

(Thanks to Mr. Gene Weingarten, who will eat anything)

UPDATE: judi points out that 80,000 people sent this in before Gene did, and I am an idiot.

FIRST -- Blarrgh!

And AGAIN AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!

Stupid IT nazis.

I always thought the restaurant employees were laughing at me when I tried chopsticks. Now I know why.

The Emperor's New Food.

FYI - imagine a young 20-something couple in a restaurant speaking Japanese. The subtitles explain how they've tricked everyone by making them eat fish - raw! - and giving it obscene names like "sushi", "yakitori", etc. and eating with two sticks. They get away with it because they tell everyone it's "traditional".

Oh, and the best part, they wait 'til everyone's soused and make them get up and sing Barry Manilow songs.

Oh, sushi! I feel like such a tempura!

Thanks, ScottMGS.
And may I just say if I WERE willing to eat raw fish, even if I LOVED raw fish, if the joint played BM I'm headed to the steakhouse.

YAY! Judi!!

First - DAMN YOU WORKPLACE FIREWALL!!!!

Second - Dave you are not a idiot.

Third - HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!

Fourth - Who ever is taking a 4 day weekend is a idiot as I have to work Monday and Tuesday

Finally and most importantly - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE WE ALL LOVE YOU!!!

Correct me if I'm right, but Dave is to birthdays as Ted Heineken-Grolsh is to mullets.

Annie you are correct. The commitee would have also accepted as to Mavericks are the chockers of the year.

Also 14th
yes I am bored at work why do you ask?

and you're working Monday and Tuesday, right?

judi points out that 80,000 people sent this in before Gene did, and I am an idiot.

WE HAVE LONG SUSPECTED THIS.

Don't beat yourself up, Dave, we've all done it. Well, I know I have.

As for the story, hell yes I believe it.

But they didn't tell us what "sushi" and "yakatori" really mean.

Annie? Can you enlighten us?

*snork* at AWBH's non-reply.

*I always knew she was a tempura!*

Did judi make those two statements in connection with one another ... or were they at different times of the day?

just curious ...

happy birthday!!! I don't know for sure that it's your birthday, but I've heard things.

Annie I have the honor of working monday then getting up at 6 on Tuesday and then getting up at 6 on wenesday because it is going to be so easy to fall asleep.
oh well

Dave's Birthday is July 3rd I do believe.

A to 24 - so sorry. If it makes you feel any bitter, I'm taking work home with me.
Also, hopefully on Monday, the blog will post a 24-related item I sent in. If not, I will email it to you to make you feel better.

Addicted: take a xanax - or 3!!! :)

Mad is right, July 3 is Mr. Blog's birthday.

WILL DRANK A "BUD lITE" IN HONOR OF YOUR BIRTHDAY ON MONDAY, DAVE! BOTTOMS UP!
KAT

Um, 24? You do have medication for your OCD, don't you? Time to take it...

Kat - please do so quietly, as Mr. Blog does not condone celibations on the day of his birth. However, the next day, July 4th, is a national holiday, since it's the birthday of one of Dave's heroes, the Yankee Doodle Dandy himself, George Steinbrenner.
*ducks*

Or better yet - time for a Mojito!

On a related note, I just planted four pots of spearmint today so my hubby, the "muddling marvel", can keep me in mojitos all summer long.

A successful link on my first try!! Thank you, CJ!

Annie, I am indeed relieved that Dave does not expect us to be celibate on his birthday; as much as I view his blogness with awe and reverence, my husband would never understand.

Annie,
I'll be as quiet as possible. I wouldn't want to disturb Dave's meditation on this all-inclusive-auspecious date of His Holiness'es birth.
I will light a candle (a Roman candle) and send it to the Heavens in His Majesty's Honor.
May the sparks fly through the air creating little sparks of light throuhout the known world (or the unknown world, for that matter) May the number of sparks be the number of years that His Royal Majesty has left to be with us on earth,(and the number of beers that he has yet to consume)

Excellently sentiment, Kat. Since I can't say it any better than that, I'm going to go back and finish watching The Music Man.

I'm sorry, but the version with Matthew Broderick just doesn't measure up to the original. Don't get me wrong, I really like MB, but when it comes to Robert Preston's performance, you just can't improve on perfection.

*Exits humming "76 Trombones"

ant I thought I gnu ewe people....
*hums "Seventy Sex Toy Bones in the Gay Parade.."*

*Enters after finishing the movie and removes the "ly" from her previous post*

And while I'm at it...

Mothers of River City!
Heed the warning before it's too late!
Watch for the tell-tale sign of corruption!
The moment your son leaves the house,
Does he rebuckle his knickerbockers below the knee?
Is there a nicotine stain on his index finger?
A dime novel hidden in the corn crib?
Is he starting to memorize jokes from Capt.
Billy's Whiz Bang?
Are certain words creeping into his conversation?
Words like 'swell?"
And 'so's your old man?"
Well, if so my friends,
Ya got trouble,
Right here in River city!
With a capital "T"
And that rhymes with "P"
And that stands for Pool.
We've surely got trouble!
Right here in River City!
Remember the Maine, Plymouth Rock and the Golden Rule!
Oh, we've got trouble.
We're in terrible, terrible trouble.
That game with the fifteen numbered balls is a devil's tool!
Oh yes we got trouble, trouble, trouble!
With a "T"! Gotta rhyme it with "P"!
And that stands for Pool!!!

Oh, and *snork!"@ the always-amazing-annie. :-)

Man! I just *knew* this one would get me blogged. Me and 79,999 other people I guess..:(

Maybe if I change my last name...

I can just visualize Robert Preston, now: Prancing around River City in his "gay" little red uniform trimmed in gold braid and donning a red and gold lard can shaped hat, raising his baton and singing, "Seventy Six Sax Buttes in the #$% Parade!"

Kat - exactly. Talk about your 'Broad'way....put some batteries in that baton and now you've got yourself a show!

Marfie, you must meet Uncle Omar (UO, that is) re: Music Man.


Note re: mojitos: if you can add a fresh sugarcane to them, they are even better.

Thanks for the tip, Guin. Now I have to figure out where to track down some fresh sugarcane...gee, I wonder if my husband would consider this a good reason to plan a trip to Kauai?

now I am hungry for sushi at 8:30am. Thanks Dave
