My yoga studio is in an old warehouse building that has five different floors. A variety of businesses and groups occupy space in the structure; on the third floor is a vending area that serves all of the tenants.
There are five different vending machines, each offering a variety of options. Some options are “healthier” than others (though I use that term semi-loosely). For example:
Apparently the vending folks wanted to help consumers identify better-for-the-body choices; so they added a happy little face to the healthier options:
But, the vending folks must have run out of decent fare to provide; and so they tried to strip the “better-for-you” identifier from the “less-healthy” foods. (Click on the picture below to enlarge it, and get a good feel for it.)
And what cracks me up about this is that the smiley face is only partially removed; it’s as though I can really experience the pain and suffering these foods inflict.
The smiley is a warning, my friends. And I simultaneously shook my head and laughed by the irony of all of this.
