Not With Food Stamps

I was in Utah this weekend and late at night stopped in at a convenience store to get some yogurt, or some relatively lowfat alternative to that carrot cake I'd be craving... Next to the stale donuts was a basket of fruit with a sign - "Food stamps cannot be used for the fruit".

At the counter I mentioned this to the cashier. "No problem, you can use them for chips, cookies, candy". My first thought, reflecting my disdain of the natives, was: "Well, another hick." But then I realized I was completely underestimating her. She was being cynical.
