    Chobani Greek yogurt has been in the news for the last week or so. Apparently, there was some mold contamination in some of the product and they issued a voluntary recall.

    Today I saw where the FDA has received reports of at least 89 people being sickened by the product.

    It reminds me of the story several years ago of an empty city bus that was involved in an accident as it headed back to the garage. By the time emergency crews arrived at the site of the crash, two dozen people had jumped on board and were complaining of various neck and back injuries.

    And I thought yogurt was supposed to be moldy.

    In today’s society that does not surprise me at all.

    I was at a toll booth one time, behind a guy that was so high, he was wadding up a dollar bill and throwing it into the change bin, and not understanding why the gate wouldn't go up.

    I had just bought an engagement ring for Mrs. Whec, and was in a hurry to get home, so I got out of my car to throw 50 cents in for the idiot - except that I left my car in drive! So, I bump him with no damage to either vehicle, and he starts to go on his way, when the jerk started holding his neck (with a smile on his face) saying "Oh my neck is killing me".

    I shoved a 20 dollar bill in his hand and told him to get lost, and he happily did.

    Funny, pathetic, whatever.

    When I open up a cup of yogurt and see mold growing on the top, I don't eat it. Is that so hard?

    I'm constantly amazed at the things that folks find "hard" these days.

    For $10 a shot, you can bump my truck all day long. It's in Islamorada. Call it a fund raiser to support the Beach Party.

    JL, I would have never thought of that. Thank you. You may have just saved my life or at least a long wait in the ER.

    Are you sure that was mold? I thought I had just gotten the new mushroom flavored yogurt.
