  1. Hmm, that blue curry reminds me of an old Japanese joke…

    A Japanese husband and wife invite their Indian friend over for dinner. Wanting to make a good impression, the wife makes curry-&-rice, which is arguably Japan’s favorite dish along with ramen.

    At dinner, the wife anxiously asks, “How is it?”
       “Delicious.” the Indian man says, “What is it?”
