Free With Your Salad–Live Scorpion!

I’m not even sure why I’m reporting this news. Like, we already know it’s a fallen world and falling farther by the day.

A couple in Chevy Chase, Maryland, was a bit put off this week when they found a live scorpion in their bag of spinach ( ). Check out the video in the link: it’s alive, all right.

They bought the spinach at a Giant supermarket.

Not to be confused with the folks who, a few days earlier, found a dead bat–yup, I said a dead bat–in their bag of salad mix, purchased at a Wal-Mart store in Florida.

What’s going on with our food packaging? Have our tech companies been put in charge of it? That’s about what I’d expect from them.

I dunno. What’s going on with the rest of our civilized institutions? Will free universal college cure it? How’s about everybody in the USA has to stay in school until they get a Ph.D.? Then we’ll be the smartest nation of idiots that ever graced the earth.

  1. Wow! That’s what happens when employers hire workers who hate our guts. Like Costco and their meat department employees who are only interested in packaging meats that are “halal”. When you check out what that really means…might not want any.

    1. I’m reminded of an old limerick:

      There once was a diner at Crewe
      Who found a live mouse in his stew.
      Said the waiter, “Don’t shout
      And wave it about,
      Or the rest will be wanting one too.”

      Sorry … couldn’t resist. (The limerick, that is, not the mouse.)
