I have used the following story I heard a few times in my talks to share about the need for ag awareness. Wanted to share it with you. Hope you like it.

Agriculture Awareness

One day while in Dallas, I stopped by an upscale grocery store. Parked my Chevy between a Lexus and Mercedes in the parking lot.

Went inside this nice store and was walking by the meat counter. I noticed a package of beef tongue. I picked it up and was kind of musing to myself about how great of mother in law joke I could have with it.

About that time, I heard some fast and loud footsteps approaching from behind me. A short lady stopped, leaned over to the left of me and looked at what I was looking at and then said, “ Oh I wouldn’t eat anything that came out of cows mouth !”

I didn’t have time to comment, and watched as she walked down past meat counter and to the egg counter. She picked up a dozen eggs and walked to the front to the store.

She never had a clue

I'm amazed she knew it came out of a cow's mouth. Everbody knows food comes wrapped in cellaphane from a grocery truck.

Old but still funny. Didn't she pick up a quart of milk to go along with the eggs?
