Today on the tray: Mustard

Grey PouponThe first Saturday in August is National Mustard Day. It’s celebrated annually at the National Mustard Museum in Middleton, Wisconsin, “with more than 6,000 enthusiastic mustard lovers in attendance.”

What’s your favorite mustard? If you’re a fancy-pants, maybe it’s Grey Poupon. Maybe you ride around the countryside in your Rolls-Royce, asking other people in Rolls-Royces if they have any of the stuff. Or maybe, like in this commercial, you use a squeeze bottle, and when you squeeze it, your chauffeur thinks you farted. Maybe he tells the other servants, and behind your back, they call you Sir Farts-a-lot, and you have no idea. But you’re still rich, so it doesn’t matter.
