This past weekend I was in New York to cover Glory 12 — it was a spectacular event to say the very least, but after it, I was very concerned. Not because of anything that happened at the event itself, it was some of the things I saw in New York. After arriving at Grand Central station, I went to go to this food cart called ‘The Halal Guys,’ it’s about a pound of the best food you can get for six dollars. I was so excited as I didn’t eat any breakfast just to make sure that I could eat as much as humanly possible. Before I arrived there, before I even walked more than a handful of blocks, I noticed a Chipotle, as I walked by it, it could not have been more packed.
I asked myself several questions, why would people eat Chipotle and why would people in New York ever even consider eating Chipotle? After doing a lot of soul searching and questioning, I couldn’t think of an answer, I’m still disturbed by it. What does this say about us as a society, in Manhattan, a place that has endless amounts of places to eat not just that, but endless places of affordable places to eat that are so much better than Chipotle, it would be like Fedor fighting Hector Salamanca.
What do we do with these people? Sadly, natural selection isn’t happening at a pace that I would like, so one solution could be…maybe just maybe, we send these people to Colombia?
