One thing I love doing is browsing Facebook for the most random groups I can find. Well I think I may have just stumbled upon the grail of hilarious pages. Maybe I’m out of the loop here but I don’t think I have offended someone so much as I did a few months ago when I was at a wedding and found out that my brother-in-law despises Cilantro. He said that it tastes like soap and doesn’t know how anyone in their right mind could like the leafy green. My wife and I love cilantro a.k.a. coriander. We put it on everything. Well now there is a huge family divide among those of us normal people who enjoy cilantro and those who can’t stand the taste of it. Apparently there are a lot more people who agree with my brother-in-law, enough to have made a Facebook page about their disgust. Browsing through, a place I probably shouldn’t be due to my judgmental nature when it comes to leafy greens, I found some images that these haters posted that had me on the floor laughing. Although I do enjoy the taste of cilantro, I cannot argue with someone else’s taste buds and I respect their views. Especially when they make posts and photos as hilarious as these below. Take a look at these very passionate posts and if you agree you can join the movement at the bottom of this post.
Apparently even this grocery store has a vendetta against coriander. I don’t think it will help sales.

If you cut its leaves, does it not bleed? If you flip it off, does it not hurt inside?

Apparently coriander haters are also a little political.
Talk about being judgmental.
This one made me laugh.
I’m going to make a costume expressing my love for cilantro next year. Take a look at the words below the bar code
Do all Australians hate coriander? Looks like its leaning that way.
You canals request extra! Especially on a taco salad. Why do I feel like these guys will beat me up if I tell them I love cilantro?

A bit dramatic but don’t worry. I’ll tip extra for you cilantro haters.

That’s a lot of victims. Can you fit all of Australia in this picture too?

Is it the smell, the taste or the texture? Whatever it is, people are passionate!
I can’t even with this one.
I don’t think I hate anything enough to remind myself every day how much I hate it. Excellent tattoo work though!
If it tasted like soap, this would be my face too.
Salt, sort, sent? Not sure what you’re getting at here.

Where do you stand on the fence of coriander? Are you a lover or a hater? Apparently, there is a huge divide and I don’t think there will be any common ground anytime soon. This is one very passionate group of people you might want to reconsider picking a battle with.
