… or gluten-free activists who made a horrible mistake?
My first intuition was that this time round a Huge Anthony from New Jersey had made off with Strega Nona’s pasta pot.
On second thought, I feel gluten free activists are at work right here. I feel the rising group of energetic native anti-gluten advocates who know that gluten makes folks sluggish, chubby, bloated, achy and unhealthy determined to rescue the lots from gluten. They robbed the native retailer of all of the pasta! Being the accountable activists they’re, they couldn’t dump the bins of pasta in an irresponsible approach. They eliminated the pasta from the unique packaging and dumped what they believed to be biodegradable materials close to the creek. They rigorously broke down the cardboard packaging the pasta got here in and positioned it of their recycling bins. You might simply be capable to discover them for those who ask the recycle employees to present regulation enforcement the heads up once they spot stacks of pasta bins in somebody’s recycling choose up this week! They only need the inhabitants of New Jersey to be energetic, so possibly we must always reduce them a break.
