This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!

Akihiko, the "large glory"? You do live up to part of your name! Umbrellas won't
make it though! You're not even fit to rule the kitchen! 


And from my friend in Mumbai!!

You right handed crook! My sword is stuck on the left. Never mind. Destroy the umbrella. But you won't get the Iphone. I'm sitting on it.

Of course, their fighting chefs. Perfect take on the picture Sylvia. Have a great week and stay warm. Brrrr cold here! I want spring.

Pat said...

Mwahaha...Sylvia, we both must've googled "Japanese male names" and picked the same name from the A-names list, as they came up first! "Large glory"...I love it. He definitely over-ate during the holidays!

Diane said...

...and the battle rages on.... :O)

Fay's Too said...

Ah, the chef wars will continue, Grasshopper

Jim said...

I like it Sylvia! A lot! :) Looks like he would have to conquer before he ruled the kitchen.

Rinkly Rimes said...

A bit of help with learning Japanese too!

Quilly said...

It looks as though he has eaten the kitchen!

SandyCarlson said...

You have me laughing yet again!

Susan Fobes said...

"Fit"is right! LOL-good one :)

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

oh no, I guess being his size is a disadvantage. Now their even making fun of his name, lol. Very funny, loved it.

Don't knock the umbrella... one of my hubby's favorite Kungfu heroes, Wong Fei Hung, can do wonders with a traditional paper umbrella. Have a look at the "Once Upon a Time in China" movies ;-)

You righthanded crook! My sword is stuck on the left. Never mind. Destroy the umbrella. But you won't get the Iphone. I'm sitting on it.

Ah, chefs will be chefs.

Greyscale Territory said...

The big guy does look somewhat misplaced! I wonder what he relies on in the kitchen?

jabblog said...

Oh, how the mighty are fallen - and they don't come much mightier ;-)

I love this entry Sylvia, nice work researching a name! I sidestepped that by setting mine in a suburban living room.

Dianne said...

that would make a great new reality show :)
well done Sylvia

izzy said...

Not even fit to rule the kitchen?? Oh My-

The things people will do for an iphone ( and an ipad)

Love your pics of Mt Rainier

This was great - not fit to rule the kitchen that's a blow might as well be over

Nessa said...

Good one. He looks like he might have eaten everything in the kitchen.

I always love MFM at your place...2 for the price of 1! But those cloud formations...oh my! I have never witnessed clouds so spectacular! I learned a little something new today so it is a good day indeed.

Eliza said...

You have to admire a man who defends his reputation.... er, I mean iphone!

storytreasury said...

Nice! The one from Mumbai is funny too.

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

Nice Sylvia, I liked the Ipod comment. A wonderful week ahead is wished for you.

fierce-battle said...

These were both really great! Loved the "large glory" and "iphone"! :)

Akelamalu said...

Well an umbrella is better than nothing in a battle! LOL

Cad said...

Full marks for the iPhone quip!

Grandma's Goulash said...

Got me considering a name change, although I'm not translating it for anyone. LOL

There's a moral to the 2nd one, I guess: always sit on your iPhone. Must make talking a bit difficult though.

Thanks for two smiles this morning.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Large Glory, eh? Well, at least he doesn't have self-esteem issues. LOL Nice take on this week's pic.

kaykuala said...

I would have thought the chefs battle with chopsticks. Considering his belly, Akihiho would win hands-down!

nimaruichi said...

Tee hee!
The iphone must be chutney by now :)

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
