IRELAND HAS A coleslaw problem.

Cheese coleslaw? Seriously? That is not a thing.

But anyway, here’s the problem. Coleslaw is rank. It is rank and sick and wrong. And it should be removed from all deli counters, salad bars, and sandwich plates forthwith.

1. COLESLAW IS CABBAGE IN EGG SAUCE.

2. It definitely, definitely does not count as ‘salad’

Maybe, MAYBE, coleslaw might be acceptable in very small quantities on a sandwich. BUT IT IS NOT A FOOD ON ITS OWN.

3. It literally smells bad

4. THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU’RE ORDERING A SANDWICH AND THE KNIFE IS ALL COVERED IN OLD COLESLAW JUICE AND THE SERVER JUST KEEPS ON MAKING YOUR SANDWICH LIKE NOTHING’S WRONG

I don’t have an image to illustrate this all-too-frequent scenario, so let’s just settle for this.
