Grey’s Anatomy Season 6 Pilot Has Most Retarded Running Joke EverSep 24th, 2009 | By Alkillous | Category: revewz, snewz
Okay, so George is dead, Izzie’s alive, drama, drama, drama, etc. Welcome to another ‘very special episode’ of Grey’s Anatomy. I’m not going to write a review about the episode. If you watch the show, you saw it, so you don’t need me to pussyfoot my way through recapping it. I just have one thing to say about it:
Ceviche isn’t “a chopped up fish dish.”
If you don’t watch the show or didn’t see the episode yet, I’m referring to a nickname given to a patient who had a leg and two arms chopped off in a boating accident. The doctors give her the nickname and act like it’s so darn clever.
Yes, ceviche is chopped fish. Ever eat salmon? Ever get served a whole salmon? No, because it’s a chopped fish. What about a can of tuna? OMG! I think that’s chopped fish! Anchovies? Close, but they chop the heads off of those, too.
In all my life, I’ve only had whole fish a few times and guess what: They chop their guts out.
But… what’s ceviche? What makes it so unique?
It’s fish that is left to marinate in citrus for about 3 hours. Yes, it’s chopped, just like every other damn kind of fish you’ll be eating.
So why would the Grey’s Anatomy writers throw ‘ceviche’ in the show? That’s simple. They’ve all been spending the summer watching Top Chef, Iron Chef, and all of the other damn cooking shows that have consumed the summer. The got back and couldn’t wait to write the word ‘ceviche’ a hundred and fifty darn times.
There you have it. They couldn’t have made jokes about larb, sashimi, or any of the other cool chopped fish terms out there. They had to go with the hip and trendy ‘ceviche.’
