Going gluten-free has been a fad for a few years now. I live under the assumption that the gluten allergy is a made up fairytale disease. You tell yourself you have it and then boom, you have it. Attention from people at parties and side-eyes from waitresses as you ask for the gluten-free menu is your grand prize. A fad invented by some genius to sell gluten-free everything to the gullible masses.
If you have Celiac Disease, I’ll give you a pass. But if you come up to me and tell me that you’re gluten “intolerant,” I’m not going to believe you and I’m definitely going to make a joke at your expense. What did people do fifty years ago when gluten intolerance wasn’t something a doctor would diagnose you with? I’m pretty sure they just had stomach aches. Maybe smoked a hearty cigarette and moved on with their life.
Anyway, The White Moose Cafe in Dublin, Ireland has been covered before. They fell under attack last year by the vegan community when they posted to Facebook warning customers that they wouldn’t be able to eat a 100 percent vegan meal without some advance notice. Pretty reasonable, right? Wrong. The vegans in Dublin promptly hit White Moose with over 2,000 one-star reviews on Yelp, which led to whoever runs White Moose’s social media accounts to go full scorched earth.
Apparantly, the gluten-free activists in Dublin are just as bad as the vegans.
Love this move. The White Moose Cafe doesn’t take shit from vegans, gluten activists, or anyone else who decided they’d take up some weird diet which inevitably makes the job of the people waiting on them exponentially more difficult.
Jesus Christ. Uhhh no chill am I right, guys? Damn. So savage. Another day, another group of health nuts roasted. Annihilated. Never to be heard from again. I’m about to go enjoy a cheeseburger chalk full of gluten. Take care. .
