UKE-MOCHI

Japanese Cookery Goddess

Fast Food Goddess of Grub, Scoff, Ready Meals and TV Dinners

The wife of INARI, she avoided cooking like the plague. One day TSUKIYOMI the Moon God invited himself over for dinner. When he popped his head round the kitchen door, he was disturbed to find his hostess vomiting into the dishes. She had planned to serve this up on a bed of rice with a delicate garnish and a bottle of house wine.

Disgusted and insulted he killed her and stormed out. However, the corpse of UKE-MOCHI continued to propagate food like some uncontrollable grow bag. From every orifice poured the ingredients for Daily Bread, Rice Pudding, Soya Beanfeasts and much more. Even including the odd cow and other edible animals.

Ever her fame grows and fast food chains should offer everlasting prayers. Her husband INARI — the God of Rice — still holds a Rice Distribution Concession. He feels in the circumstances it all turned out for the best as he does not have to face his wife’s cooking any more.
