The Road to Crazy is Smooth and Slick

Yesterday was Wednesday and I didn't cook anything from the NY Times - I was far too busy feasting and wine-guzzling with some Raisinhater kin. Hopefully I can get to it tonight.

But here's a creepy picture for you.



He's saying "Yummy Sushi is to Die For." I walk past Yummy Sushi every morning on my way to work and every morning this window catches my eye. I'm not a vegetarian and I am not squeamish about the idea that my food comes from dead animals. I don't care if there is a fish head on my plate. In fact, I think it's important for all carnivores to acknowledge the fact that an animal died for their dinner. C'mon, people, its ok if your food looks like an animal!

But that Yummy Sushi fish freaks me the hell out.

What kind of message is he trying to convey? Is he a Christ figure? A kamikaze fish dying for his cause? Is he making an anti-vegetarian statement (see, the fish like it)? A misguided teenage fish that doesn't know any better, all elbows and knees under his black fishy trenchcoat?

The worst part is that Yummy Sushi is dreadful. Poor Mr. Fish, sacrificing himself for low grade takeout spicy tuna rolls.

And so every morning I walk past, feeling sad for a picture of a fish.

Well, now, that's certainly....weird. Charlie the Tuna is much more consumer-friendly in my opinion... :p
