The Root of All Evil
It’s been found, one intrepid Red Eye reporter has finally exposed the source of Evil that plagues workers daily.
I know, I see your fear, and I understand it. For snacks of the office variety truly are that which leads us into sin.
Here are seven office snacks that contribute to your calorie count ranked in no particular order of evil…
The HORROR of a Bran Muffin.
So I was reading this article over someone’s shoulder on the train this morning, and I couldn’t help but think, did this reporter (or their editor) wake up one morning and decide that what society really needed was an article about what else we shouldn’t eat? That lists a bunch of stuff everyone already thinks they shouldn’t eat anyway?
And you know what will make it really edgy? We’ll use all kinds of religious language to make people feel additional guilt and horror at their own bad bad naughty actions what a great service to society we are doing today. Providing possibly no new information, but a whole new influx of unnecessary guilt!
Not that the Red Eye is a bastion of amazing reporting or key news. The red eye for those who don’t know is the free daily newspaper in Chicago that pretty much everyone who commutes via public transportation reads (or uses for the crossword/sudoku). I don’t read it, because frankly I find it insulting. There are usually twice as many pages devoted to sports as their are to world news.
But I must admit they do occasionally get it right.
I just can’t help but wonder why journalists feel the need to repeatedly report on stupid crap that everyone already knows without adding any new (or perhaps actually factual) information? Do they have some kind of “Make sure everyone in the US has messed up attitudes about food” quota they must fill each year? And how can we get that abolished.
