[photos] In which I am brought low by Japanese food

As documented on this blog, I was brought low by a food item during my trip to Japan. This was the little crunchy cone which tasted like "a hint of hot pepper mixed with cat shit, sand and brown sugar." Without further ado, I present photographic evidence of my humiliation at the hands of the Japanese snack food industry, courtesy of lasirenadolce.

I confront my nemesis, blissfully unaware of my impending fate.

And so it begins.

The taste hits Jay
The taste begins to hit me. I assume the recommended eating position.

Unsuccessful attempt to swallow it whole
I make an unsuccessful attempt to swallow the damned thing whole.

The aftermath
I finally choke it down (out of sheer decorum as we are standing in the lower lobby of the InterContinental during this entire donnybrook).

As usual, more at the Flickr set
