As a service to faithful readers, I intend to try to keep you up to date with the evolving definition of elitism. Today’s elitism upate is as follows:
Elitist: Discussing the price of arugula with farmers in Iowa. Apparently, arugula is the heart and soul of elitism, as demonstrated by the distribution of said lettuce by posh Irish restaurateurs “McDonalds” in their side salad:
Salad Mix: Iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, spring mix (may contain baby red romaine, baby green romaine, baby red leaf, baby green leaf, baby red Swiss chard, baby red oak, baby green oak, lolla rosa, tango, tatsoi, arugula, mizuna, radicchio, frisee), carrots. Grape tomatoes. CURRENTLY, OUR SALADS DO NOT CONTAIN SPINACH.
Now I don’t know about you all, but here in West Virginia, a trip to McDonalds is some pretty exotic stuff.
Not Elitist: Riding in a nine car motorcade to buy a cappucino from Starbucks.
Now, some of you might be wondering why a domestically grown lettuce is elitist but imported coffee beans are not, or why cappucino is not elitist but latte is, and if I find out I will let you know. Like I said in the first installment of our Elitism Update, the rules for this stuff can change unexpectedly, depending on what the right wingers need to accomplish. It is entirely possible that you could order a T-bone, thinking you are having a good American meal, and halfway through the meal find out that T-bones are now elitist. So be careful, readers. As we have learned in the last eight years, elitism is bad, and you always want to shoot for “guy I wanna have a beer with.”
