Several months ago, these Nong Shim Banana Flavored Snacks showed up at the Federal Bureau of Foreign Culinary Relations. They were good, but right after we tried them, we had to fend off an unexpected invasion by fire ants, and we forgot about these tasty treats.
Others, however, didn’t forget about our encounter with this strange snack. This morning, the parking lot was packed with protesters. After reading their signs and speaking to their leader, we determined that they represented the International Sweet Puffed Snack Coalition, and they had been watching this site for months to see if we would ever review Nong Shim Banana Flavored Snacks. When we failed to do so, the Coalition decided they’d had enough and organized a demonstration.
Apparently, the proponents of sweet puffed snacks consider themselves to be an oppressed minority, and our unintentional bias toward savory puffed snacks didn’t go unnoticed. How were we supposed to know that such a group even existed? Shouldn’t there be an agency to keep track of such things? Well, I guess that responsibility would technically fall on the FBFCR, but we’ve been much too busy to keep up with our official obligations. Is it too much to ask that we should be able to collect a paycheck without actually having to do anything?
In any case, you can rest assured that we harbor no ill will toward sweet puffed snacks. We believe that all puffed snacks, regardless of flavor (except devil’s dung), are worthy of being consumed. Now if the protesters will please disperse, we have a very important mission to undertake.
