“Attention, locavores, omnivores, urban butchers, backyard beekeepers, cheese fanatics, and conspicuous consumers of consuming: Your chickens won’t save the world and we don’t want the life story of everything on the menu. We don’t care what you eat—we just want you to lower the volume. Also, please stop talking about ramps.”—
Ben has mentioned ramps to me many times since I moved into his apartment in August. I’m pretty sure every time I say, “what the fuck are ramps?” He always answers my question, but unfortunately I still have no idea what the fuck ramps are. Also, I agree with all this. After I read The Omnivore’s Dilemma (great book btw) I started to annoy myself.
