Culinary Captain Obvious

So, I'm in St. Louis for business. The meals are all being catered by the hotel where we are staying. Now, I know a thing or two about food allergies, and I am genuinely appreciative of restaurants and catering people that take care to let you know when there might be an issue with the food. But...., there is courtesy. Then..., there is absurdity.

Case in point:

Lunch today had a pork loin protein option. Next to the sign indicating that the item was, in fact, pork loin, there was another sign that said, no kidding, "MAY CONTAIN PORK". 

Um....yeah. About that. Are you sure?

But, wait...we haven't gotten to the dessert table yet. 

One of the dessert options was a nice looking Pecan Pie. Pecan halves bigger than life right on top and everything. No mistaking that, yes, them pecans are nuts. I bet you smart folks can guess right where this is going. 

Yep, you guessed it, next to the little "pecan pie" sign was another little sign that said "MAY CONTAIN NUTS."

Um...yeah. I can see that. 

Is it just me, or are we passed nanny state and gone over the cliff full gonzo to bubble wrap society?


  1. We've gone way over and hit bottom.

    1. Stephen, we may have hit bottom, but I'm reasonably sure those are shovels landing in the bottom of the hole with us.
