Mundane Halloween Thoughts

"I don't want to know about the squirt gun that shoots sour cream into my burrito."

 - local newscaster, on a story about the fast food industry attempting to be more transparent about the contents and creation of their meals.

I agree, scarier than any vampire, werewolf, or tentacled creature from another dimension. Plus, after looking for burrito pictures on the internet, I think I'm going on a diet. Burritos are pretty gross to look at, even after they've been prettied up for a photo shoot.
