The New York Times reports that the black market spatula trade has skyrocketed. Trucks full of hundreds of undocumented spatulas are leaving Central America to seek new lives at Denny’s Restaurants and McDonalds and kitchens everywhere.
Undercover reporters entered the dark, seedy world of spatula trade that led them to basements and abandoned warehouses all over the United States. The Federal Spatula Commission reports today that for every legal spatula in the states, there are 4 undocumented ones. Congress has been sitting on a bill that will increase the anti-spatula efforts by $300 billion dollars. They hope it crosses the President’s desk by this fall.
Here is a picture of a spatula dealer in an undisclosed area of the United States, plying her wares.
