No! This just can't be happening!

I scrupulously avoid reading anything published by the LA County Department of Health, because otherwise I would never be able to eat anywhere ever again.

Unfortunately, my friend Donna just alerted me to the fact that Doughboy's, provider of our red velvet cake fix, made the Health Department's Food Facility Closure List for the period 05/31/2007 through 08/31/2007. Due to vermin infestation.

Quelle horreur !

In reality, I will probably end up going back to Doughboy's after I've sufficiently repressed this memory. If I really thought about all of the things I am probably eating on a daily basis, I would just starve myself to death. So I will forget this ever happened. I will just push it back into that magical land of denial where hamburgers grow on hamburger trees.

For those of you who are ready to leave the Matrix, there are a few notable excerpts from the LA County Department of Health Services after the jump, including Pinkberry, Brite Spot, and Cold Stone Creamery.
