Obama Sushi Adds Good Taste to the Executive Brunch

The "Obama Sushi" made by an exceptionally creative sushi chef pays tribute to America's 44th president in a most unusual - and dare I say, tasteful - manner. 

There's still room for more Obama mania... if the room is the kitchen and you happen to be Kawasumi-sensei, a sushi chef who teaches at Tokyo University. Kawasumi has whipped up a feast for both the eyes and stomach that looks so good, it had to be framed.

Kawasumi-sensei's masterpiece features, in addition to a startlingly realistic pair of Obama futomaki rolls, a variety of nigiri-zushi and futomaki that together must cost any purchaser a hefty chunk of change - we can believe that! But while the cars and happy faces are undeniably cute, it's the Obama sushi that are the highlights.

Creating the perfect Obama futomaki roll took considerable trial and error according to Kawasumi-sensei. Careful selection of ingredients was just the start: brown rice for the skin, black sesame seeds for the hair, tiny shrimps for the lips and a gleaming fish-paste smile.

It appears that rich red Maguro tuna and white Ika (squid) were used to mold the stripes of the American flag, with cooked egg spelling out "USA" and, of course, a big "V" for Victory. (via JapanatorDixiworld, original Japanese page at MSN-Japan) and

Uh.

The worship this guy is getting is freaking me out, I support him and all and think he's a very intellectual individual and believe in him pulling us out of the conflicts we face as a country. But is it necessary to bow down to him and kiss his feet..?

Uh.

Perhaps you have forgotten the reign of terror brought on by Bush. Granted, no one should need to kow-tow to their superior, but I can't say as I blame the populous for being a bit....overzealous. I'm Canadian and I'm quite happy to see Obama in office.

Why So Serious?

I think its cute. Why is everyone taking it so seriously? So people are fond of him. Big deal. Why does everyone feel so threatened by that? You can't like or hate a politician, apparently. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

LOL, Ok, what reign of terror would that be?

You Canadian libs are truly mentally bankrupt.

Last I checked, there weren't any terrorist attacks on American soil after 9/11 (with Bush in office).

Now, we have a president who is basically terrorizing the economy. Maybe not a big deal for you Canadians, but for those of us who aren't socialists in the USA, its a scary deal...

Re: Anonymous:

Errrrrrr... the reign of terror would be... uh... everything that Bush sort of did or touched or even thought about? Yah. That's it.

I'm Canadian, too. We may be mentally bankrupt, but we're not financially bankrupt. Ha ha!

Off to my free medical checkup. Ta ta!

"Free" Medical Checkup? HA

Hey Canadian moron, your medical checkup isn't "free" it is subsidized by the huge taxes you guys are paying so the government can run health care. You all can keep your "free" checkups...and let me know how it goes when it takes 8 months to get a biopsy or other important procedure that I can get at any time with my evil free market health care plan.

Why do you think he's an intellectual individual?

Other than the media telling you this, what makes you think so?

The guy said he's traveled to all 57 states and thinks we can send translators from Iraq to Afghanistan.

He's putting us into more conflicts, or do you call russia sticking bombers in Cuba pulling us out of conflicts?

clueless libs

You must be a youngster with no sense of history, or you wouldn't be as likely to use over-the-top descriptions like "reign of terror." It almost makes me wish I could give you a taste of a real reign of terror.

Oh yeah, and the "free" checkup - who is paying for that? Surely someone. You sound like a silly Brit.

"Perhaps you have forgotten the reign of terror brought on by Bush"?

Here's a tip for you: Any 'reign of terror' that can be forgotten in mere weeks, obviously wasn't.

Perhaps you're just a propagandist. Tell you what: Look out for falling poll numbers. Obama is currently behind where Bush was at this point in his presidency. Isn't that nice?

The rest of the planet saw it clearly. You'd have to be hiding behind your Chevrolet and apple pie to have missed it. Take your isolationist (or domineering) policy back to Hooters.

I'm surprised you raised your head of the bar stool to check.

> Now, we have a president who is basically terrorizing the economy.

At least we know your facts aren't checked. Thanks for discounting any credibility you may have had, and making your Budweiser-brand banter completely ignorable.

> Maybe not a big deal for you Canadians, but for those of us who
> aren't socialists in the USA, its a scary deal.

It's a scary deal for them as well. As the US has grown to Jabba the Hut-like proportions feeding off of the rest of the planet's willingness to sell you parts for your Chevy and apple pie - and the credit to pay for it - Princess Leia might wind up unemployed now that the beast is slaying itself from within. Also suffering will be all the people that built Jabba's palace, the stonemasons, the families, etc.

so in canada they pay high

so in canada they pay high taxes and everyone gets their free healthcare...whereas in america all the WORKING people get taxed to death, so people who AREN'T working can get free healthcare from the goverment, and free foodstamps from the goverment, and free welfare checks from the goverment, all from the pockets of hard workers

i think id rather pay hightaxes and atleast be eligible for some of this free stuff, instead of giving it all to the people not working for it

WOW. How'd you learn to be such a good orator?

Everyone is entitled to their own political opinions so it's fine if you're not President Obama's #1 fan. I take pride in being an American, and I respect the struggles that my ancestors and the ancestors of others have had to face in order to make it into what it is today, a world power. So don't go making American's look like uneducated, closed-minded, racists. If you're so against our president maybe you should travel back in time and space to when you'd be indefinitely jailed or even brutally murdered for talking such slander on the "ruler" of your country. Maybe you'd be a bigger fan of the big man then, and even if you weren't, the rest of us wouldn't have to listen to you make yourself, and the rest of us, sound like gaping idiots.

Erm..

How many terrorist attacks on American soil were there *before* 9/11 with the past few presidents in office? (not starting the debate about government responsibility for it) Also, Obama isn't "terrorizing the economy"; he is trying to fixed what was already f'ed. Bush broke so many laws, national and international... he decided war would be fun while not knowing the difference between Iraq and Iran. Yes, he did admit that publicly. He later learned it after constantly blaming the wrong country. You don't have to be mentally bankrupt to not support someone saying, "Hey, guys, I think these people have big weapons like we do and I don't like it so lets have war... oh yeah... by the way, it turns out we had some made up info and they don't have them, sorry about that, don't hate me, but lets still have war anyways, kthxbai". I live in teh US and always have. Bush made me embarrassed to live here. Obama at least makes it look like he's trying to do the right thing. He might have hidden motives I don't know about, but so far it's looking good. Most people who don't like him are pissed because they're in the military and he isn't just letting them do whatever they feel like and are making them work a bit while following rules. Oh no, rules!

From Obama Sushi to 911 Histeria

I was just passing by, from a humour’s link to laugh at the stupid Obama sushi, and I found a Blog of Terror !
To the Obama Hunter….
Come on,... this is the most ridiculous Blog I happen to Stumbleupon...
Sound like the Old Yankee battle or The Kuklux Clan rising again !!!
What is this crazy medieval witch Hunt, beware of Obama stuff ? We have been scared long enough with Bush, and for good reasons. Quite strange that some people would prefer an ignorant Tyrant like Bush, who has made USA the world most hated country. I guess the Black guy won't fourfill you’re dreams, by trying to limit the damages of all the Wars Bush had started. If you are so afraid of Socialism, of giving your precious Tax dollars to the system for the benefit of this society, and especially to the poor and Healthcare, it is quite disturbing that you don’t oppose to the Billons of you’re Tax going to the Mega Corps Crooks who screwed you’re Economy and the rest of the Planet , making more and more Poor to deal with. Investing all you’re Tax money in WAR and war Supplies, that is what you’re Bush was there for. But You don't mind that, do you?… Ho!… you really miss the old basterd. And you also miss his reassuring protection against USA enemy. The world.
Like his father before him, Bush was corrupted and an Anti-Humanitarian, who devoted his life to Oil co, and War industry. That, we know now. In Fact, I do believe that Obama would not have stand much chance to be elected, if it wasn’t for Bush absolute decadent Legacy that preceded him. I am not saying that Obama will lead us to paradise, but after what we have been trough with the scary Evil fool, it is a major positive change and we can just hope for the best. Believe me, you just cannot scare us with the Black men voodoo stuff anymore.
