-but you do agree that Obama is like some Japanese food?
-and you'll concede that Muslims are bad?
-well, there's no arguing that.
-and some Japanese food is bad?
-no, of course not, that's impossible.
-therefore Obama cannot be a Muslim, QED!
So, if all Japanese food is good, you might think that it would be difficult to make a decision regarding the best Japanese food. Nope. Easy.
Is it noodles?
Good (and cheap), but no.
Typical Japanese lunch with lots of little food thingies, or maybe a bento?
No, not even close.
How about sushi? Has to be sushi.
Anything that comes to you along a conveyor belt has to be the best.
Mmmm, sushi. But no, good sushi IS amazing, and the Japanese can make anything raw taste good (even horse), but there is something even better.
Hmmm, grilled squid?
No, and that's cheating.
Ok, I've got it! Matsumoto soba noodles: mind-blowingly good, prepared with an unfathomable amount of artistry and skill, and possessing such a delicate flavor that they only need to be dipped lightly into a simple (yet extraordinarily complex) broth and then not just eaten, but experienced.
Uh, maybe. But that's way too sophisticated for me. The answer is... Okonomiyaki. QED.
