Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 27, 2021

In Japan, bukkake udon is a traditional noodle dish that's especially popular in the summertime. The word "bukkake" refers to the "splashing" of the savoury broth. Yes, also means something else. Because of that... the noodle chain Marugame has renamed the dish at its US locations, calling it "B.K."

I like this part of the article:

Of course, ------- udon has existed long before the porn connotations...

Because the adult video meaning is slang and because there's a verb -------ru, which means "to throw [a liquid, such as water] on someone or something", people in Japan can order and eat ------- udon and not act immature about it. Similarly, there is also English language food slang for sex, and people can eat and order those without acting like creeps.

So the stigma that the U.S. attaches to the word "-------" is based on cultural ignorance.

It is based on cultural awareness though.

Just not the culture of Ramen noodles.

Usage of what's effectively become a loan word does not necessarily imply cultural awareness.

"Usage of what's effectively become a loan word does not necessarily imply cultural awareness."

If people didn't know what the word means in our culture, this issue couldn't exist.

What's next? Mushy biscuit?

You may as well piss into the wind trying to disassociate either ------- from porn or a swastika from nazi's.

Man, I hope sentinel has a "wipe my browser history" clause in his will. Swastikas and -------...

Midgets are next.

The scope of the meaning of the word in your culture is based on cultural ignorance. Most people who know the U.S. version of the word may not even know it's a Japanese word, much less seen the Japanese version of the pornographic meaning.

------- isn't on the menu anymore? Well what am I going to feed Sammy's mom now?

Maybe we'll try the seafood restaurant...

Some of us transcend the culture we came from, while others wallow in it and want to preserve their narrow views of status quo from a previous century.

You can learn how to make homemade ------- and share your wet noodle with her.

"your culture"

You are not part of American culture?
Which culture do you represent?

But the second, pornographic meaning of the word is the more recent development. And both meanings are from Japan.

I want Sammy's mom to Branch out and try eating clam.

She says she has no interest in such an experiment but I have a feeling that if the opportunity presents itself she'll go for it.

Maybe you trick her into eating clam by covering it in -------.

Sent,
