It was a day like any other. The sun was shining. The air was crisp. None of us knew, though, because we were sitting inside in front of our computers. And that’s when it happened.

The outrage was swift.

The puns were bad.

Even the President weighed in.

But the worst thing to have happened to guacamole is not peas. Peas, at least, are green. They are cute. They, like avocados, grow from the ground.

These are the real crimes against our beloved guacamole and the New York Times has nothing to do with it.

Really Martha?
