On Vegetable ...ophilias - Part 1

The scales fell away from my eyes this afternoon in the canned vegetable aisle of one of our local grocers. And I realized the merchants hawking canned peas are visiting an atrocity of perhaps epic proportions on shoppers. I haven't decided what action to recommend (boycott, something worse, etc.), but I did want to do my part to let both of the people who will visit this website in the next month or so now:

This affront to decency absolutely disgusts me. There are plenty of laws on the books against this victimizing of the young. It's bad enough the capitalist swine are profiting from the butchery inherent in the exploitation of vegetable cultivation. But to trade purely and shamelessly on the basis of age. It's appalling.

Take Le Seuer Vegetables first (a division of Green Giant). They go so far as to trumpet their revolting accomplishment with eerie pride: "'Very Young Small Sweet Peas' for sale." It's right there on the label, people!! Not only young peas, but very young and small.

Get 'em from those sickos first. But good luck making it past Saint Peter at the pearly gates if you do.

And Birds Eye Foods is even worse: they are selling "Baby Sweet Peas" ... my word.

All this leads me to wonder ... where is Stone Gossard when you need him?
