12 Jan To Bean or Not to Bean
Nick Selhorst: “In the words of Yukon Cornelius, ‘You eat what you like, and I eat what I like.’”
Truer words have never been spoken at Choice One, especially about Skyline Chili. We have a fairly sharp divide between the “Skyline’s amazing!” crowd, and the “Skyline’s not amazing!” crowd (although stronger words than “amazing” are used by both sides…). And when Jeff Puthoff questioned Nick on his festive hat (and chili) choice this week, Nick used Yukon’s words to proudly defend the side of the Skyline fence he is on.
Nick’s nod to Yukon Cornelius harkens back to the 1964 stop-motion Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer program and a conversation between Hermey the future dentist elf and North Pole prospector Cornelius about peanut butter and pea soup. While the Skyline debate rages in the background of just about every lunch conversation at Choice One, we can be fairly sure there is little controversy in the peanut butter versus pea soup debate, just like there is little controversy that “doughnuts are good,” “pizza is good,” and “Brian Schmidt wants Arby’s.”
Like Yukon, Nick unapologetically embraces the 3-, 4-, and 5-way of tastes on the flavorful journey of boiled hot dogs topped with chili… because Choice One is serious about lunch, especially when it comes to anything topped with or relating to cheese. And like Yukon, we’ll stick to what we like, whether on Team Skyline or a Skyline Skeptic, because the winner of that debate at Choice One is as up in the air as Rudolph on Christmas Eve.
