I didn't know that Shohozan was half Filipino.

I think Masunoyama is. Can anyone confirm that?

If only a certain somebody hadn't stopped maintaining his list of closet foreign rikishi...


(I'm serious, I miss having that resource available.)

Shohozan's parents are both Japanese.  He has been asked and questioned if he is 'hafu' or if he and his family are originally from the southern Kyushu region only to respond that he and his family are from Fukuoka and are Japanese...  On an unrelated note, Shohozan dislikes celery and can not drink alcohol. lol

My kids hate celery too. I can see not liking something but how do you hate celery? I just don't get it.

I don't hate celery. But in a hot Juny/Augember day in Athens, I was at a pub when a barmaid wordlessly left a promising cool plate of something green and oblong that looked like cucumbers. In the dim light of the pub, and the added 1.5 points of myopia induced by the beer, it was very easy to mistake the offerings for cucumbers. Plus, cucumbers are among Greeks' most beloved summer snacks and when the room temperature matches your body temperature you definitely want some savoury solid stalks of water disguised as vegetables. My eyes glimmering at the idea, I grabbed a piece and wolfed it down in a second and a half. 

Alas, it was celery. I still remember the aftertaste. My mouth tasted like wood and disappointment. I sat there for a moment incredulous, thinking to myself that I had no right to be frustrated when I had never expected to be served cucumbers for free in a pub. Realising that I could not be able to find any cucumbers in the middle of a casual social outing at 11 pm on a Saturday, I slumped back in my tall stool and sipped my pint to change the taste in my mouth. 

 

I have never eaten celery since.

Celery is just a little bit of water tied up in green string. Only the string has turned the water a bit rancid...

I'm not crazy about it raw either, but it's excellent cooked in soups, etc.

Celery is Coriander's (or Cilantro for you non-metric Americaners) fatter, inflexible, less risk-taking older brother...

Rhubarb is dessert celery, and both should be nuked, preferably from orbit.

Never had rhubarb :-| they can't grow where durians can...

And there were no durians growing in the rhubarb triangle where I'm from! I did try dried durian recently though, it was okay :)

Guess who had rhubarb pie 2 times the last week? Thin and crumbly cake ground, with a fluffy sweet and sour topping...almost like a Rhababerflammkuchen...Mom's best :-D You now have my permission to release the kraken at me (Laughing...)

Who never tried a rhubarb pie: Just do it.

Processed durians are okay. The real thing though, those golden, custard-ly, pungent, finger-lickin' goodness straight from the cracked-open spiny shell from whence they came.....ooooohhhh it literally melts your senses....and your wallet too...

I just wanna say I don't think Rocks' Dr Hook post is getting the respect and attention it deserves.

This thread should be more about マーガリタ and how that's a totally common name for Japanese women.

This thread has been hijacked by the anti-celery league, and rhubarb and durians stole that thunder. マーガリタ is a Philippine woman, so the next thread about her or about Filipino sekitori will be overtaken by people telling funny stories involving their Filipino friends.

Given what she produced, she must be a lovely person.
