Why I Hate Horseradish
Thanks for the request @daisy ! I just realized no one has ever asked WHY I hate it.
- •It's basically an IED inside your scalp.
- •It threatens to ruin sushi.Not exactly. But wasabi is basically the same thing, so I have to be careful. I was delighted when sushi places I visited in Japan made it very easy to hold the wasabi.
- •Powerful people try to push it on us by adorably calling it Arby's Horsey Sauce.
- •It ruins brunch.Bloody Marys are always packed with that shit. Recently I asked a bartender how much horseradish is in the mix. He said proudly how he personally tosses two giant fistfuls in every bucket of mix. I said, "Hmmm, I have to pass."
- •They put it in cheddar sometimes.Cheese, one of the best things in the world, suddenly becomes an accomplice to sensory assault and baddery. (That's a bad pun and also a "bad" pun but not a misspelling.)
