Unintentionally humorous

So, most of the salmonella cases have been found in Texas. Federal investigators have moved beyond the tomato and are now looking at salsa in general and at jalapenos in particular. The fun begins with the headline: "Jalapenos Probed in Outbreak." Today's Wall Street Journal article includes an explanation for the uninformed of what a jalapeno is. And the quotes from the Texas Restaurant Association person are priceless. "To blame salsa brings nothing to the table" is merely a sample. I love it that the TRA owns the "restaurantville" domain and that the image across the top of the home page, at least for today, is a frieze of chile peppers.
