So I'm at the supermarket, and I want to buy some Bertolli pasta, because of their gay-friendy ads. There's lots and lots of Barilla pasta (they of the gay-unfriendly gaffe), and lesser quantities of various other brands. Don't see any Bertolli.

Just then this guy comes along, seems to be dressed like a supervisor or something. So I ask him, sir, do you have any Bertolli pasta? Oh sure, it's right there. He gestures towards some boxes.

So I point to one. Can't hide the annoyance in my voice. "Sir, what does that say?"

Actually took him a couple of seconds.

"Oh! 'Barilia'!"
