Our waitress developed a running gag based on a grammatical (syntactical?) misadventure at the local farmer’s market. One carton truck boldly proclaimed it’s organization’s slogan, “Committed to [line break] harvesting fresh produce [line break] and people.” Whose thinking Soylent Green? THIS GUY! I don’t know where these non-profiteers schooled, but how would they expect anyone not to slather that tasty gerund all up and over that apparent compound noun situation?
Erica (our server– I hope that was her name; think so; 80%+), was only a degree shy of worked-up, because no other farmer’s market attendees would concede that the truck was even suggestive of darker interpretations.
Instead of allowing her to go mad thinking she was the only sane being we drew her a picture.
Also, brunch was delicious–try the salmon hash.
Front and back images are included. The back had more space but the front was more likely to be seen.
“The people are ripe for the harvest. Be quick, or they will spoil. Thank you!”
