Washington DC street scene of dumpster tarpaulin and Ikea umbrella, amid residential.

Washington DC street scene of dumpster tarpaulin and Ikea umbrella, amid residential.
What I remember about Ikea is all of the people back during the 2013 horsemeat scandal who were peer-pressured into pretending to be aghast at the idea of meatballs being made of horse, as though a meatball eater could be regarded as being dainty about what he or she eats; as though meatball consumption doesn't almost inherently involve suspending one's disbelief.

And that news reports here in the U.S. reassured us that we needn't worry about U.S. Ikea meatballs, because only European meatball content was being investigated -- i.e., U.S. meatballs have not been and will not ever be tested for anything, so we can go ahead and eat platefuls of them, in confidence that no "surprising ingredient" discoveries will be publicized that would call for us to have to put on a show of being outraged by our victimization.

So onward we may fork the meatballs into our mouths one after another. As we withdraw the forks from our mouths, our pressed-together lips will collect tasty little wads of sourcream gravy from the tines.
