Apparently, coriander and cilantro are the exact same thing – crazy, right? You learn something new every day.
But despite the fact that the little-known fact I just dropped on you is completely beside the point, it’s necessary to know when you dive into the story of this disgruntled grocery store employee who doesn’t just hate cilantro. He fucking hates it.
Now, I’ll say this. I don’t know all that much about what’s going on here. But here’s what I do know. First off, the specific cilantro we’re talking about here is a product of Australia. It also states that this cilantro was “local,” meaning that this news story must have happened in – you guessed it – Australia. The specific type of cilantro is “Robin Birch” as grown on the farm Birch Hydroponics. That last little nugget of information is not pertinent to the story, but I wanted you to know that I support local farmers by giving them a shoutout. If you’re ever in Australia, I suggest you stop by their farm to see their operations.
This is where things get interesting.
Somewhere along the way when this employee was creating the signage for this particular cilantro (or coriander, if you will), he made it known that he fucking hates coriander. How do we know this? Well, here.
Between the bold-printed, “CORIANDER IS FUCKING DISGUSTING” and “use this to ruin the lives of the people you’re feeding,” I think we can all agree that this dude is 1. a disgruntled employee who is displaying his fuck tank being on empty and 2. he’s all business when it comes to displaying how little cilantro means to him.
On top of some street tacos? Nah. Mixed in with the rice at Chipotle? He’s a brown rice guy. A little dash in some homemade salsa? No, thanks, he wants it bland. Why? Because this dude fucking hates cilantro. .
