i'm a hater

of cilantro, that is.

And being part mexican, and loving all things salsa and mexican food-y...I often feel misunderstood.

Oh well. Yahoo understands me. Today it featured a little sumpin-sumpin about cilantro, and how polarizing it. Apparently I'm not alone-- people either love it or they hate it. Haters unite!

So take that cilantro. You smelly, creepy little bastard. I am justified in my lack-of-love for you. Now, please join your other evil pals. I call them "The Three Cs" as they are three things whose taste I despise, and whose flavor I feel takes overs the taste and aroma of anything they are used in.

Cilantro, obviously.
Cucumbers. Ugh. Don't get me started. These things are disgust-a-mundo.
Celery.  Do you WANT me whine anymore? I didn't think so.

Happy Cinco De Mayo, as a staple of mexican cuisine takes a verbal lashing from Montastic. Adios muchacho.

You: I'm a hater.
Me: And or duh.
You: You didn't let me finish.
Me: There was more?

Seriously though, my brother hates it too. In small doses I think it's a good garnish, but I've never understood the people that want to overpower everything with it...for example, once had a burrito where all the fillings were laid on a bed of cilantro. Dis. Gust. Ing.
