8. The Creamu OmeletteApril 14, 2008
The Creamu Omelette, as it is aptly named, has recently made its debut in Japan – or at least in one place in Northern Japan.
The picture is self-explanatory: this is nothing more than an involute cast of egg swollen with falsely-coloured cream.
Apart from the obvious health effects of eating a purse of cream, one has to wonder how this is to be served – or when, if that.
Likely, there are three suggested servings
1. Hitori Dake style, where one ingests it solemnly, as if it were a foot-long sub, in a sunless corner of a moon-blanched room.
2. Cut into appropriate serving sizes. (Oh wait, cream cannot be cut)
3. By throwing it into the face of your greatest lactose-intolerant oppressor.
Clearly, this product is an abortion of practicality, if not taste. Worse is that it is sold in a 12″ box alongside other log cakes, as if it were meant for an office party or a candid birthday blow-out.
The beacon of hope here is that Japan has latched on to the omelette; now, it needs to go one step further and implement the greasy breakfast and/or post-bar brunch. Meanwhile, one must settle for this tumefaction- bedaubed with an army of dairy.
