If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
Someone purely evil - maybe Pol Pot
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
I was in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and tasted something foul in a meal I was served. Fearing I might set off an international incident by complaining that I'd been poisoned, I politely inquired as to its ingredients and was just told the main ingredients, all of which seemed fairly normal. Never having experienced this particular awful taste before, I was at a loss to identify it. I had the meal boxed to take out and returned to the embassy for to seek the opinion of others. The result was that an identification was indeed made. This meal was laced with something called "cilantro".
I vowed that from that day forward, this evil substance would never again pass my lips.
I have kept that vow and urge others to take up the cause.
More about me:
I am retired from a government agency and now spend my time supporting worthy causes such as Ihatecilantro.com.
My motto is "Friends don't let friends eat cilantro!"
