Yeah, I'd straight up murder some dudes for a well executed cucumber or avocado roll.

What I don't like are sloppy rolls that fall apart before you can get them in your mouth. Anything else is personal preference. But a sushi roll shouldn't spill into your lap.

Oxymoron.

That's like a "well executed" rice cake.

Many things are quite common: non-alchoholic beer, caffeine-free coffee, fat-free mayo, McDonald's hamburgers... They ain't acceptable for me to order.

mayonnaise
cream cheese

I CANNOT express how much I agree with that!

I could eat sushi every single day, I'm not a sushi purist, but there's nothing like the taste/texture of luke warm cream cheese squishing out from between rice and a piece of raw fish (usually with some ridiculous sweet sauce artistically zig-zagged across the top) to make me want to hurl...

a cucumber roll or oshinko roll are wonderful interludes between pieces of fish...

Yep, I agree. So disappointing to go out to a new place and see many, many rolls with this dairy stuff and the sweet sauces. However, I will say that the only time I went out for sushi in Atlanta with an actual person from Japan, they took me somewhere up 85 that actualy had spun sugar on the plate with the rolls. Authentic or not, I don't like sweet with my sushi.

Sushi is a style of cuisine and does not mean it has to have fish or vegetables though both are acceptable, the same way "sushi" in no way means raw fish.

I likes me a good Eastern European Stuffed Cabbage Sushi...   But I have never seen one...

Mayo/cream cheese is a way to draw in those who might not give sushi a try otherwise. Familiar flavors/textures help them get past the idea of raw fish. I've hooked a few that way who go on to graduate to the real thing.

That's what I mean.  Sushi does not mean raw fish.  A simple cucumber roll is a better way to introduce others to sushi and when they are waiting for it, you can explain that there are lots of options that are actually cooked like shrimp, eel, crab, etc.
