I was pleased to learn that Trader Joe's has recalled products containing that vile culinary interloper, cilantro. I hope this causes lots of people to fear this noxious, puke-inducing abomination. Maybe it will lead to a worldwide ban.
After hearing the good news, I went over to IHateCilantro.com to see what my comrades had to say. So far, not much, aside from a haiku about it:
Whaat? Cilantro foods
Recalled at my Trader Joe's!
I knew it could kill.
Some of the other cilantro haiku here are funny:
Egg salad sandwich
One bite - the enemy's here

You ruined my fajita
Now I have no lunch

However, […]
As the world has shifted the last few months, it’s very likely your assortment of EDC items has changed too. While you’re still looking to slim down the number of items you have to tote around every day, there’s a good chance you’re keeping an even tighter focus on how safe those items are and […]
Building blocks are among a child’s first, and arguably, most important, toys. Once they start stacking one tentatively on top of another, the blocks not only spark waves of creativity, but actual real-world understanding of scientific principles like engineering and physics. It wouldn’t even be a stretch to call blocks on of the first true […]
