White coat

Quick -- the guy on the right, is he the man who grinds your cracked peppercorn turkey at the deli counter, or is he a resident at Johns Hopkins?

No way to know for sure. I was pushing the cart yesterday at my "local grocer" and noticed the proliferation of the lab coat in use at the supermarket. As if there's science going on in the frozen food aisle. Does Boyle's Law still apply to the frozen spanakopita if it's stacked alongside tail-off shrimp?

Copernicus died trying to figure that one out.
