When the times get tough, the rinds get selling

I have a friend of a friend who is in the habit of blaming pretty much everything on “tough times”. I admit, it’s a pretty crappy economy as well as a crappy lot of other things. But, “tough times” being the excuse for an inability to do anything gets a bit old. That and they’ve been doing it for the lest two years or so, when times were definitely not so tough.
It appears that the wonderfully in touch Whole Foods has decided that due to these tough times, they need to start selling products that are more within reach. Thus, the reason they apparently have the nerve to sell the rinds of Parmesan cheese. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. The fact that this actually exists and is trying to be sold for $20 a kg is proof yet again that Whole Foods seriously needs to either get a clue or fold up shop. Although they have peeked my curiosity as to whether they might sell fish bones, yogurt mold, and used wine bottle corks in the near future. One can only help that their attempts to get more in reach of the “common people” will continue.
