First came news from my fave NYC newlywed journo Matt Chabon that insanely annoying OJ Simpson-loving and torture-defending attorney Alan
Whatshisname Dershowitz hates the Food Coop like poison and is planning on boycotting.
And yesterday, also via the Observer, a late-breaking boycott promise from NY Post columnist Andrea Peyser, possibly the most godawful resident in all of Brooklyn (and that’s saying something). How could I have forgotten to have include her in my list of Brooklyn’s 100 Most Embarrassing Residents, btw???
Thank you, haters of Israeli products (whatever they may actually be: dead sea facial cleanser and body wash?)!
Of course, the empty threat to sue Barney’s Co-op for coopting the “coop” name still takes top prize for dumbest never-gonna-happen non-event at the Food Coop but this whole Humbugs for Hummus deal is a definite runner up… Does the Food Coop even carry any Israeli products? I thought all hummus came from Queens.
As I reported months ago, “Israel lovers are banding together in defense of this proverbial assassination attempt on the Jewish state by evil, anti-semitic lefties. We need to help them come up with a better name for their organization than the current “More Hummus Please.” Folks, help out your Zionist neighbors here.”
But whatever you think, you’ve got to admit that this proposed boycott is AWESOME!
I will never have to worry about being checked out by Andrea Peyser or Alan Dershowitz. I may actually make it through a shift in peace if this keeps up!
And there’s always the possibility of a live hummus-wrestling event between outraged Zionists and self-righteous lefties. That’s enough to make my day right there!
