Germans Are Just Giving Up on Vegetables


The Wall Street Journal brings news today that restaurants in Hamburg are just getting rid of vegetables customers aren't eating them because of the country's massive E. coli outbreak. In fact, according to the story, "Hamburg health minister Cornelia Prufer-Storcks said she is disappointed that some restaurants are still selling salads." And yet, some hard-core adrenaline junkies are still eating raw vegetables, just for kicks. One such cavalier veggie lover tells the Journal, "I think it's a new kind of bungee jumping just eat a salad." [WSJ]
