So I was at a restaurant and cilantro came with the meal I was unaware of this because it was such a small piece. It turns out I'm allergic to the hideous stuff and I started having a really bad react...

You lot are mad! Don't get me wrong, I am all for freedom of speech, and support your right to rant about mad stuff. Doesn't mean it isn't mad.

My most vile moments:
