*shrug* in this country the government can't be bothered to enforce the difference between "olive oil" and "olive flavored oil" and "oil that may have once been near olive oil"

What happened when the Pope went to Mount Olive?

Popeye shot him.

Fano: What happened when the Pope went to Mount Olive?

I shot the pontiff,
but I did not shoot the patriarch.

Fast forward 2-5 years: Citing increasing environmental concerns the EU commission for waste reduction bans the use of disposable bottle for the storage and serving of olive oil. Commissioners recommend discontinuing to use of olive oil at table side service as "inherently wasteful" as most patrons do not use the entire bottle of oil.

The commission will take up consideration of a petition to chop down all olive trees in Europe to insure their
recommendations are followed.

I get the heebie jeebies from oil that's been there for who knows how long.

Sometimes you can see vinegar eels in the vinegar too.

Why should the gov't waste their time on such things?  If I buy a bottle of olive oil and it sucks because it's not really olive oil, I won't buy it ever again

Because almost all of the "extra virgin olive oil" in the USA is adulterated with other oils.

Because it's reasonable to expect what is in the bottle to be what the label says it is?

I buy first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil.  I want that to mean that I'm getting oil that came out of olives at a low-temperature, the first time they were pressed.  Especially when I am spending ~$20/liter on it.

Now if we can start getting olive oil imported from the EU that isn't like 40% plain vegetable oil that would be great too...

Popeye wouldn't know anything about Olive Oil's hygiene, subby. Why do you think his forearms look like that?

The European Commission said the move is designed to improve hygiene and reassure consumers the olive oil in restaurants has not been diluted with an inferior product.
...
But Enzo Sica, owner of Italian restaurant Creche des Artistes close to the EU quarter of Brussels, said the rules would prevent him from buying his extra virgin olive oil direct from a traditional supplier in Italy.

Hilariously, I would trust that the evoo from a small producer would actually be olive oil way more than I would from a big factory place.

/most of your olive oil isn't olive oil
//thank your local mafia

This is the first step to figuring out how to keep the pork out of the beef and chicken, and the horse out of all three.

I wish I didn't either... One time I was in a restaurant, picked up the vinegar bottle on the table, and looked at it. I thought I had something in my eye at first but then I was sure I saw something swimming around in there.
