Obama Kitchen: Run, Bo, Run!


The Peoples Cube presents:

Can you name the author of this quote?

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”

Update II:

Besides the presidential hat, Barack Obama wears many others: TV personality, best-selling author, inspirational speaker. And now he is the host on the new Travel Channel food series Dog, Interrupted, which focuses on eating dog and other food that defies hypocritical values of bigoted Western civilization.

As he continues to explore every corner of the globe looking to deconstruct the American paradigm, Obama encounters the weird, wild and downright outrageous dog recipes that help define the wonderfully post-modern, post-civilization landscape.

But eating dog is only the first glimpse of multicultural nutrition in faraway lands. Diving headfirst into life’s diverse, post-American pageant, Barack tries everything – from snake bile to kangaroo fetus to parasitic fungus growing out of the forehead of a mummified caterpillar to the raw eyeball off a seal carcass lying in a pool of blood after Michelle was done with it in the White House kitchen.

In the works: Barack plans to act on his long-time secret desire, to feast on human flesh in the fog-shrouded highlands of Papua New Guinea – the most celebrated of multiculturalist experiences in the last vestiges of a World War II cargo cult, filled with wonderful mysteries of disappearing Australian tourists and stranded European boat cruises.
