keldaria: dbirchall: Wait, there are people who grab olive oil every time they buy groceries?

That was my thought. I mean I cook with a decent amount of olive oil but I don't go through more than a bottle a month or 2, if not longer


Not just any olive oil, but a very specific brand:

Syrian exile Nidal Shaikho should have been delighted when he found a bottle of his hometown olive oil at a grocery store in upstate New York. Shaikho comes from Afrin, Syria's Holy City of Olives, whose produce is famed across the Middle East.

Afrin is better know for its nasal decongestants.

Who the hell picks up olive oil "every time they buy groceries," subby?  If you're doing that, it's not normal.  Or healthy.  You're supposed to use it in moderation for cooking, not nude wrestle in it.

I am going to start boycotting olive oil from now on because I don't want to support murderous shiatheels.

And as soon as I do this line of coke, I will tell you what a superior person I am.

SecondaryControl: I'm already funding billionaires who seem to want to destroy America, cause environmental collapse, prevent affordable education and cost-limit healthcare for the masses. I dunno that funding a warlord would be any worse for me.


Well, at least the Warlords didn't cancel season 3 of The Tick.

Not directly, but if you ever pay for a bus ticket, you are doing that by proxy.


Not if it's electric.

Popeye was all for grabbing her in the supermarket.  And presumably everywhere else for that matter.

You think that's bad? You're subsidizing Jeff Bezos with your taxes, which automatically come out of every paycheck if you're on W-4 like most people.

At least with the groceries you get something beneficial to yourself for it.
