Definition of sushi (noun) in English:

Sushi


NOUN

1 [noun] A Japanese dish consisting of small balls or rolls of vinegar-flavoured cold rice served with a garnish of vegetables, egg, or raw seafood.

“Why are there so many sushi establishments these days? You can try Nepalese food, Argentinian, Lithuanian, Pakistani  – something! In Devonshire, we may have cooked the life out of everything we touched, but through it all, I still have my raw fish.” – Oxford English

Sushi is delicate. It’s like the porcelain skin of a Geisha. And we all know that a beautiful Geisha can melt my heart faster than Linford Christie on steroids.” – Oxford English


Sushi Quotes about Oxford English

“For a brief stint in the mid-90s, Mr. English tried to peddle what he called a ‘London Roll” out of a cart in Marylebone, of all places. It was a type of sushi made with jellied eel, mincemeat, and aubergine. Even put brown sauce on top. Brown sauce! On SUSHI. Needless to say, Londoners were less than impressed with this… unique creation. The Mirror gave him a good review, but, being the Mirror, I’m fairly certain he paid them off. His hair-brained scheme lasted all of about a week.” – Eric Culpepper (Neighbor, 1993-1995)

“I spent a few months with ol’ Oxy when I was stationed on Okinawa in the ‘50s. For the first few weeks he ate a lotta taco rice – man, was he about Mexican-Japanese fusion; I’ll tell ya. But finally, me and my buddies got him to try sushi. One time we went to this bar called Rolls with Soul where they served you a shot with every piece of sushi. Not with every roll – every piece. Well, Oxy, bein’ the thick-livered Limey he is, finished off at least twenty shots of sake that night. Wasn’t too long before he was hunched over the toilet, spewin’ out chunks o’ seaweed and salmon. I still saw him sitting on the street the next morning, bottle of sake in one hand, dynamite hand roll int he other. He was a real soldier I tell ya. – Sargent Rodney Novak (US Army Veteran)

“My mum told me Oxford English actually invented the conveyor belt sushi bar. When one of them broke down, he went to inspect it and got his tie stuck in the belt. Would’ve strangled himself if Mum hadn’t seen him struggling and run in to hit the release button. Wish he could’ve thought of a better way to thank her than fucking her brains out. I wonder if Mum and Dad would still be together if it weren’t for old Mr. English…” – Billy Biggleston (Run-of-the-Mill Teenager #93)

“Oi, Oxford English better fookin’ watch ‘imself, er I’ll ring ‘is neck on that fookin’ sushi belt meself! I’ll fook ‘is nan ‘e comes near me mam again innit? Me bruzz might tink he’s a proper ledge, but I’ll fookin’ hedge ‘im.” – Tom Biggleston (Billy’s Chav Younger Brother)

About The Author

Sir Alexander Johns

Sir Alexander Johns grew up in South Manchester, the son of the neighborhood gossip, until they were exiled, as his mother began spreading false and malicious rumors when all the towns real information dried up. While in hiding, Alexander picked up his mother's chit chatty skills and applied them to a weekly paper he wrote and distributed at his new Upper School, called 'Bollocks.' Circulation in his first year reached a whopping 1000 copies a week, and he was quickly the most loved, yet hated, person on campus. Alexander's exploits and new found wealth got him accepted into Oxford University where he majored in English and Creative Writing. He recreated his weekly newspaper, this time calling it 'Suck My Bollocks', for the University crowd and it quickly became the National Enquirer of the Oxford world. Money began pouring in. However, the Oxford Elite were not impressed as they were now subject to the same gossip as his previous school and administration. After his first semester, Alexander was quickly dismissed for breaking many school ethics laws about Libel, Slander, and Wire Fraud. Soon after his dismissal, Alexander became obsessed with causing a stir and wrote his first book. It was the Unauthorized Biography of Elton John entitled 'Fat Drug Addict.' It became a huge smash hit and caused a major ruckus in the inner circles of London High Society. He followed that up with an even bigger hit, the Unauthorized Biography of Margaret Thatcher called 'The Many Men in Margaret's Thatch.' He has since written over 20 Unauthorized Biographies and sold over 120 million copies around the world, and was knighted by the Queen of Denmark, in return for never moving to or writing about any member of Danish decent.
