Superfluous Matter

I don't like cilantro. It's tastes like gross and immediately pops out at me from any dish it's in. Even the spiciest curry or the hottest salsa. A single leaf of cilantro ruins it all. I had heard that there was some research indicating that some people have a genetic predisposition to thinking that cilantro tastes like awful. A quick search on Google revealed nothing conclusive, but it did bring up the site,, dedicated to connecting cilantro haters all around the world. There are even haikus written by the members to express their distaste. I think the haiku is one of the most effective form of expression. Much better than ridiculous limericks.
