If you’re in the market for a new pressure cooker to whip up some stew or pulled pork, don’t head to the Cranston Williams-Sonoma for the time being.
Williams-Sonoma, the specialty retailer of home furnishings and gourmet cookware with more than 250 stores in the United States, has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.
It was first reported that Williams-Sonoma pulled pressure cookers from shelves in stores in Massachusetts, but a call to the Cranston location in Garden City Center shows the company has issued a larger company directive.
Cranston store manager Kyle, who asked his last name not to be used, said pressure cookers were taken off the shelves via a company directive because it didn’t seem appropriate to sell them in the wake of the marathon bombings. Brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly used pressure cookers to make the bombs used in the attacks in downtown Boston.
The temporary measure will probably not last for too much longer, Kyle said. Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website.
One advantage moonbats have is that they need not worry about being subjected to parody — not because most comedians are obedient liberal establishment lapdogs, but because it is impossible to parody a reality like this:
A food company has changed the name of its popular Cains Kosher Dill Midgets after an online campaign by the mom of a girl born with dwarfism.
Chelley Martinka, whose 10-month-old baby daughter Adelaide has the condition, was incensed after seeing the name on jars at her local supermarket in Cranston, R.I.
Wait, this woman has just now discovered pickles called midgets? Has she ever been to a grocery store before? It seems far-fetched that she just now uncovered this knowledge. Further, why would a company cave in to this? Certainly 99% of the people would think this woman’s actions are asinine. Have we really become, as a society this gutless? This hyper sensitive? This wimpy and soft? These companies that cave in need to understand something. They are only empowering the malcontents of the world by such idiotic actions.
