I LOVED the original Japanese Iron Chef. This comic commemorates one of my favorite things that ever happened on the show. They claimed that the Chairman was boycotting the show because his Iron Chefs had lost several matches in a row, but I’ve always assumed that he looked at the special ingredient and refused to have anything to do with it. Anyway, they made poor Hattori-San . . . well, see for yourself.
My favorite part is how the guy doing the translation sounds embarrassed to be saying what he’s being made to say.
Note from Missy: Around the House of Meyer, we will still occasionally say the word “piglets” in just that sad tone of voice. Also, OMG, how did I forget about “I had my Eustachian tubes tied, now I can’t hear kids”? LOL, Scott Meyer. LOL.
