So today, at 11:30 EST, the normal lunch conversations started at the office like every work day. The normal chuckwagon, go-out-for-lunch crew somehow or another decided that they all wanted to go and get SUSHI for lunch.

Sushi.

For lunch.

Sushi isn't a lunch. I mean... I am impartial to sushi. It's not necessarily at the TOP of my list, but I can do it every now and then.

But it's not for lunch. And, it most certainly isn't something that a bunch of self-respecting heterosexual guys decide "HEY LET'S GO GET SOME SUSHI FOR LUNCH". I can honestly say that in all of my 20 years of professional experience, I have never once thought to myself, "Hey... I gotta' go get sushi with the guys for lunch today."

Gay attorneys might go and get sushi for lunch.

Not me.

Sushi is something that a bunch of friends who have already been out drinking and partying decide to go and get for the ambience and entertainment value.

For lunch, I need something that is going to stick to my ribs.

So, I skipped the sushi. I went by myself to the chili parlor and had a couple of coney chili dogs with the rest of the manly men.

I bet they went to look at drapes after lunch too....pussies.

It's sushi.. can you elaborate on how that is gay?

I love sushi. Anytime, anywhere. I'm not gay. Am I?
Link Posted: 9/20/2004 10:12:06 AM EST
Sushi in and of itself isn't gay. Of course it isn't. And I happen to like it -- somewhat. But it's not something that I think to myself "HEY I GOTTA GO GET SUSHI FOR LUNCH TODAY."

If I WERE to ever have sushi for lunch, it would be because we decided to go to a Japanese restaurant that served it, and I happened to go ahead and have some yellowfin.

But not because we stood around in some circle jerk saying, "Yeah! Let's go for sushi!!"

That's what film students might say.

Not me.

It's the whole pretentiousness of the act of saying, "Hey, let's get sushi for lunch!!"

GAY! GAY GAY!!!

Sushi for lunch is not gay.

Sushi is not gay. It is one of my favorite lunch stops. Good anytime. Get the Unagi.

You're missing my point.

No... sushi isn't GAY.

A bunch of guys standing around the office saying, "YEAH... LET'S GO GET SUSHI!!"

That's gay.

You got issues.

So, if someone decided they wanted bacon, eggs and toast for dinner would you become similarly unglued?

Where, oh wise one, is it written that certain foods can only be eaten at certain times, and if those scriptures aren't adhered to it calls into question someone's sexuality?
Link Posted: 9/20/2004 10:17:36 AM EST
It's just one of those things that you just 'know'. Like the right and wrong beacon.

DAMN STRAIGHT!!!!!!

What kind of wussies not only decide, but then giggle gleefully over "GO FOR SUSHI!!!"

It even sounds gay to say in an excited tone with a bunch of guys. If there was at least ONE woman, then it might have been a little different.

No.

My wife is hot as fuck. I am well within my weight range and physique... not obsessively so like a gay dude who wants to go get sushi with the 'boys' for lunch.
Link Posted: 9/20/2004 10:30:12 AM EST
I, onemangang, am guilty of being a lunch sushi lover.
Call me gay and I'll hit you over the head with a piece of eel!
I'm as country as peas and cornbread. Sushi is equal to soul food to me! I did not start eating it until about 10 years ago but I have to admit that I will eat it whenever I get half a chance.
There is a place in "Chambodia" (Atlanta folks will know where I'm talking about!) on Buford Highway called Toyotaya that has a great sushi buffet. Nothing out of the ordinary but for $7 you can fill your wagon!

I guess some people just don't have the BALLS to stand up for their choices.

I could give a flying fuck if I'm amongst a bunch of "hardhat types" if I decided to have sushi for lunch, which BTW, I've done more times than I can count.

Same goes for my opinion of men(?) who have their ears pierced. I give my opinion (if you have pierced ears you likely won't enjoy it) even if it means I get my ass stomped. But at least I have the balls to stand up for my convictions.

Okay... EATING SUSHI IS NOT IN AND OF ITSELF GAY.

I LIKE SUSHI.

Middle aged men bouncing around the office like a bunch of giggly school girls saying, "Let's go for sushi!!' "YEAH!!!" "OH YES, WE MUST... LET'S!!"

That is whey ghey.

sushi (noun)
su*shi
sustenance for yuppie pussies trying to be "in vogue"

Acceptable worktime lunches:

Anything with meat in it that does not cost more than $2. This includes almost any fast food out there (exceptions listed below). Almost nothing out there costs more than $2 in time and materials to make.
Peanut butter & jelly.
Cheesecake.

Some unacceptable worktime lunches:

Any "salad" that is not at least %90 meat of some kind. Tuna salad is acceptable. A chicken chef's salad is not.
Sushi, if you suggest it. (Others suggesting it is quasi-ok. It sets off the gaydar, but it doesn't scream BATTLESHIP AHEAD.)
Same applies to Thai, Mongolian, or any other "exotic" type of food (unless it's served in a fast-food buffet setting. Buffet mall Chinese food = good. Botique "Braised Rare Panda Penis" Chinese resturants = gay for lunch.)
Ordering Chicken Cordon Bleu when you could have a Liverwurst sub, IMO, is gay. Ordering a french pansy food when you could have a manly wurst just screams out "I tried out for a position on Queer Eye".

Just my opinion.

Link Posted: 9/20/2004 10:34:33 AM EST
ummmm....er.... me and a guy I worked with used to go eat the hell out of sushi for lunch. He's a retired Army infantry LtCol and just fathered a baby at the age of 52.

Ya might want to recalibrate your gaydar, 'cuz if I set it off something is definitely wrong.

With that screen name and that avatar, you expect us to believe that?

Reminds me of when I was stationed in Yokohama, once a week we'ld go out to one of the local sushi bars. The gauge of being a "real man" was how far along the Chief of Staff's Swim, Slither, Squirm and Slime scale you got. Although in his case the "Spring Water" (Ice cold saki on a hot humid day) helped move him quickly along the scale. I stay pretty much up in the Swim and Slither categories thank you.

You do realize that Ernest Hemingway (the real man's real man) in his key West days was quite an afficianado of sushi? called it by another name though when they took it when they were fishing.

<­BR>







Yeah they called it "chum"

$7 for all-you-can-eat sushi?! I can eat $50 worth easily. Do they have that on the weekends too? I'd make an excuse to drive up there on a Saturday.

Sometimes I wish I wasn't south of Atlanta. Most of the good stuff is on the north side. But at least it's not one big traffic jam here. Good with the bad, I guess. I need to find a good sushi buffet on the south side!

Okay, so the guy gobbling <ahem> "manly wurst" isn't a latent?



Please tell me you iron workers don't bring California rolls to work in those hard, clamshell, black lunchboxes.

Please tell me you aren't swinging your legs back in forth in glee while sitting on an I-beam, 15 stories up, chewing away on some squid with chopsticks out of those kick-ass manly construction worker lunch boxes.

You're ruining my day.

It was more of a "why would you eat this fucked up horrible smelly dish when you could have liverwurst? Or bratwurst? Or weiswurst?"

Then again I guess I have a different concept of horrible smelly dishes
