Simpsons let organic food know its place
Last week’s season finale of The Simpsons seemed to touch on (and ridicule) every aspect of culinary news the past couple of years — organic fare, vegetarians and food-borne illness, to name a few.
The first part of the show focused on fast-food chain Krustyburger and its extremely unhealthy options. So owner Krusty the Clown decides to launch a vegetarian burger:
Turns out the “Mother Nature” burgers — made in nearby Ogdenville — are tainted with rotten barley. At this point the story turns to the immigration issue but not before getting in a couple more pot shots.
The best part is the pitch-perfect commercial Krusty makes to promote his new Mother Nature burger.
