Sidwell Friendsís surprising Pearl Harbor Day menu (Japanese food for the Obamas)
WaPo ^ | 12/6/11 | The Reliable Source

Posted on 12/06/2011 2:55:50 PM PST by Nachum

A lunch that will live in infamy? That’s what at least one parent at elite Sidwell Friends (yes, Sasha and Malia’s school!) wondered upon seeing what the school cafeteria listed as its “Pearl Harbor Day” menu Wednesday: A heavily Japanese-inspired lineup, including teriyaki chicken and edamame (as well as more generically Asian delicacies like tofu, fried rice, fortune cookies and “oriental noodle salad”). A school rep told us this was just a fluke — not a meal intended to commemorate the 1941 Japanese attack on U.S. forces: The contractor that prepares school lunches randomly assigned an Asian menu to Dec. 7, and the subcontractor that prints the calendars automatically marked Wednesday at Pearl Harbor Day. “It was completely coincidental,” said Ellis Turner, associate head of the school.

As the daughter of a prisoner of a Japanese concentration camp, I am not amused.

Well, we ultimately DID eat Japan’s lunch. At a very high price.

After all Hussein claimed it was the Germans who attacked Pearl Harbor. Ole’ Suharto, might want to check on the Japanese invasion of Indonesia, but then again history has never been his strong suit.

I wonder if he’ll give a “Why can’t we all just get along” speech at the memorial, or offer up apologies for over-reacting to the attack.

“It was completely coincidental,” said Ellis Turner, whose great-aunt was coincidentally Tokyo Rose.

I think it's unfortunate, but not an insult, and we should simply make a note not to have a Japanese-themed lunch on December 7.

By the way, it was -— ... -— ... (TO-RA in kanji Morse) that the Japanese strike force sent... and they picked those syllables so a good radio operator didn't have to go.

This assumes the person who made the menu even knew Dec 7th which I highly doubt. Also, Japan is a radically different country from 1941 Empirial Japan. Is it wrong to eat a Frankfurter on Dec. 11th?

Sure it is. And 0bama rubbing his nose with his middle finger is likewise "completely coincidental."

All I know about Japan is if you want to get their attention you gotta drop the big one. Twice.

All Hussein knows about them is that we dropped the big one on them, twice, and we must be horrible sadistic bastards for that one.

One year, at my frat in college, we held Kamikaze Night on Pearl Harbor Day. Believe it or not, the house band for the night was named “Jimmy Chang And The Japanese Dive Bombers” ...

That may be true, but Tokyo Rose was operating under duress. She was acquitted in Nuremburg after the war, unlike Lord Haw-Haw, who did some hard time.

I bet that a lot of Japanese people would be embarrassed by this. Remember last summer when 0bama wanted to apologize for Hiroshima. It was the Japanese who said no, do not apologize. They don’t want to pull scabs off of old wounds, like the Rape of Nanking, the Bataan Death March, the Railway of Death, etc. etc.

I agree. This is more likely the case that the contractor who selected the date and the meal has never even heard of Pearl Harbor or the USS Arizona or the significance of December 7th. In a few years the same will occur with 9-11. Snooki on the other hand...

‘Lord Haw-Haw, who did some hard time.’

If by ‘hard time’ you mean at the end of a hangman’s noose, then you are correct. He was executed ASAP.

He was hanged. Hard time at the end of a rope.
