If it bleeds, it leads, right? That’s the motto all those hard hitting journalists seems to live by. How else are they gonna sell advertising?
Ellen joked that it seemed like before every commercial break on the local news, the primped up newscasters would scare the crap out of the viewers by telling them that some innocuous, household item would kill them, and they’d be sure the tell you what it was… after the break.
Ellen asked innocently: “It is peas?”
Now, art is imitating life and yes, it is peas.
PR Newswire reported that the Pictsweet Company announced a voluntary recall of frozen green peas after the company learned that some of the packages may contain shards of glass fragments.
