Smoking The Controversy On Facebook That Everyone Is Talking About
There’s a controversy on Facebook that everyone is talking about.
I know, shocking! What is it, a Tuesday?
Yes, actually it is.
Quick, pick up your dry cleaning before they close. You’re welcome.

WARNING: DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR SOMETHING WHICH COULD POTENTIALLY SHOCK AND STUN YOU.
OK, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
Are you sitting down?

Because I’m telling you: This week, Brandy Welvaert slammed foods labeled as non-smoked.

Ready? Ok. Deep breath now. Find your center, get those chakras in alignment, clutch the crystals tighter, surround yourself with that happy place, and we’ll continue.
The dairy diva posted the following on her illicit Tome of Countenance:
A cheese fan identifying himself as “Nathan Williams,” retorted to the boiling Brandy, “I believe most provolone is smoked, maybe that’s why they labeled it? On a side note, pre-sliced or shredded cheese is heresy.”
