Want Some Quiche? Show Me Your ID!

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A British supermarket was left with egg on its face after insisting a woman shopper show proof of age.. for buying a slice of quiche.

quicheChristine Cuddihy thought it was a joke when she was stopped at the till of her local Tesco superstore in Coventry, central England, and asked to show ID proving she was over 21 in order to buy a slice of cheese and onion quiche.

After some minutes of debate with the cashier, a woman in her 30s, Cuddihy, who is 24, was forced to show her driving licence before she could leave with her purchase." AFP

Quiche is staple of French cuisine, but some folks in the United States and the UK are also fans of the baked dish. Real men don`t eat quiche, and most guys who consume the loathsome pie are of the fey persuasion.

I can`t for the life of me figure out why a supermarket cashier required a woman to show proof of age before allowing her to purchase a slice of quiche.

It`s not like you need strong adult molars to chew the stuff, a newborn baby would have no problem eating the mush.

I don`t need no stinkin` ID to buy quiche, not that I would ever consider buying any.

I hope the British lady has been cured of her addiction to the unpalatable dish.
