Food Fight

TIME.com: Food Fight

Hunger pains can apparently turn even the most upstanding diplomat into a looter.
That’s a strange analogy. That’s like saying, “The DTs can apparently turn even the most upstanding lush into a boozehound.”
The decision to make the cafeterias into “no pay zones” spread through the 40-acre complex like wildfire. Soon, the hungry patrons came running. “It was chaos, wild, something out of a war scene,” said one Aramark executive who was present. “They took everything, even the silverware,” she said. Another witness from U.N. security said the cafeteria was “stripped bare.” And another told TIME that the cafeteria raid was “unbelievable, crowds of people just taking everything in sight; they stripped the place bare.” And yet another astonished witness said that “chickens, turkeys, souffles, casseroles all went out the door (unpaid).”
Am I the only one who thinks this is entirely in character for the UN?
