When people band together in groups and begin to exert their power, it’s described as democracy. Or looting.
Sometimes, the power exerted is disproportionate to the power that’s really held.
Which is why I feel a curious indigestion at the fact that Taco Bell, which has stood firmly on the side of meat-based traditionalism, has allowed itself to be bullied by a bunch of vegetables.
To be marginally more accurate, the company that bought you meat and chihuahuas — but not, of course, chihuahua meat (that would be too expensive) — appears to have knelt beneath the ululation of a vegetable lobby that didn’t appreciate jokes about vegetables.
