We were shocked — shocked — to learn this morning that Berkeley students are protesting something. In this case, it's the inclusion of bacon in the pinto beans at Chipotle.
We are still agog at this breathless KTVU Report on the scandal. How did KTVU learn Chipotle's dark bacony secret? Um, from Chipotle's company website.
And how effectively had Chipotle been hiding this bacon from its sensitive Berkeley customers? Well, if you ask for vegetarian dishes, the staff apparently instructs you to order the black beans, because the pinto beans “have meat in them.” But they don't say what meat! Let's march on Washington!
This story was so silly we should just let it pass. Nah. Where do we begin?
