Skip to comments.Sidwell Friends’s surprising Pearl Harbor Day menu (Japanese food for the Obamas)
Posted on 12/06/2011 2:55:50 PM PST by Nachum
A lunch that will live in infamy? Thats what at least one parent at elite Sidwell Friends (yes, Sasha and Malias 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.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Falafel on 9-11?
As the daughter of a prisoner of a Japanese concentration camp, I am not amused.
And humble pie on July 4th.
How appropriate for the traitor-in-chief.
Well, we ultimately DID eat Japan’s lunch. At a very high price.
No, goat anus and a side order of small boy.
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.
That seems to be the way the brains of Obama’s people work ,Pearl Harbor Day , I have a great idea Japanese food
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.
“Random”? “Coincidental”? MY ASS!!! But then again, these subcontractors, etc. might very well be produckts of the publik skool sistum and have NO clue whatsoever!
It was completely coincidental, said Ellis Turner, whose great-aunt was coincidentally Tokyo Rose.
“I’m Barack Obama and I approved this menu.”
completely random? Because no one GAFF anymore about what Dec 7th means to some Americans?
Halal menu for 9-11.
And sauerkraut on D-day.
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.
I believe lil Ellis, nephew of Tokyo Rose is a liar liar pants on fire
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?
Marxist/Democrats never could lie very well.
