This is the kind of thing that just baffles me.

It's a meta story. The real story is about missing the big picture in several ways at once.

So when I said that this stuff misses the big picture....

Quote
It is this high demand on wild stocks which has left seahorse on the endangered list, with seahorse fisheries reporting a minimum decline of 50% in fisheries over the last five years. Through our research we have discovered that seahorses will become extinct in the next 20 30 years. Are we going to sit back and let seahorses become the dinosaurs of our generation?

But at least Frito is doing well
