Well, it seems not everyone finds the (mis)adventures of Cuke Skywalker, Obi Wan Cannoli, TofuD2, and friends as funny as we do. Like its predecessor “The Meatrix,” an online video spoof addressing factory farm issues that angered the dairy industry, “Store Wars,” which touts organics and refers to conventional farming as the dark side, has many in the produce industry up in arms (er, light sabers?).
“It’s one of the best spoofs I’ve ever seen,” said Tim Chelling, vice president for communications for the Western Growers Association in Irvine. “But when it comes to some of the facts presented, as far as consumers go, the farce is not with you.”
Listen, Tim, leave the puns to the professionals, ok?
