Lunch

Lunch is on Steve today.

Nothing special today just The Beach Club from Jimmy John’s while eating at my desk. Turkey, guacamole, cucumber, tomato, onion, lettuce, mayo and provolone with jalapeno potato chips. I don’t know what they put in their bread but I crave it a fortnight!

Thanks Steve. And if anybody wants to share their lunch with the group, send me an email with a picture.

Pair demand apology over ‘racist’ dinner receipt

From Metro.co.uk:

A student and his girlfriend are outraged after being called a ‘black couple’ on their receipt by staff at a London pub.

Johnson Abraham, 24, and Roxanne Duhur, 21, claim they were the only couple dining when they received their bill at the Slug And Lettuce in Islington Green.

Mr Abraham, a mechanical engineering student from Dalston, was at the pub last month with Ms Duhur to celebrate her new job as an estate agent.

They ordered at the bar, without a table number, before going upstairs to find a seat. When they went to pay for the meal the comment ‘upstairs blk couple’ was printed on the bill.

Mr Abraham said: “I was outraged. They wouldn’t have written ‘white couple’. I do class it as racism. It spoiled what should have been a celebration.”

Eh… There are plenty of incidences of racism still out there in the world today. This doesn’t seem to be one of them.

Daily Dose of Ingersoll

“But,” says the religionist, “you cannot explain everything; you cannot understand everything; and that which you cannot explain, that which you do not comprehend, is my God.”

We are explaining more every day. We are understanding more every day; consequently your God is growing smaller every day.

Robert Green Ingersoll, “The Gods” (1872)
