Grocery Store Sociology

A somewhat famous quote from Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin:

Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.

The contents of the grocery basket belonging to the shopper in front of us at a grocery store in Arcata, CA:

  • One loaf of white bread (store brand)
  • A jar of peanut butter
  • A bottle of Canadian whiskey

I now refer to this as the "grocery basket of despair."
