Comment: Screwed Either Way (Score 1) 440

by zaxus (#46622043) Attached to: Million Jars of Peanut Butter Dumped In New Mexico Landfill

Costco is screwed no matter which option they choose here. If they had donated the peanut butter, the headlines would have been "Costco donates potentially tainted peanut butter to NM food banks." Either way, they end up with a tarnished image, even if all of the peanut butter is untainted.

In this case it sounds like the product was damaged anyway, with peanut oil leaking out of the jars, so they made a decision not to sell or donate damaged merchandise. Since they were screwed either way, this was likely the least damaging of the two options.

"NO! Get out of here with that Ubuntu, and lay off the poor Linux, will ya?! SHEEZE! You're a creep! Go away, we were having a good time until you showed up, Canonical! ARGH! Go have some coffee with cream, or something! Because I'll tell you something! This is a happy place!"

Seriously, I'm going back to Debian after this crap...

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.

Working...
