Before I saw the menu for this new takeout place I had no idea there was any religious thing revolving around not consuming insects. I found this article about how the Torah prohibits the consumption of insects which means there are people who must go through great pains to clean lettuce and other vegetables so that they’re suitable for consumption. It’s weird that I haven’t heard of this until now.

I thought it was odd that the menu of this takeout place mentioned the lack of insects in their lettuce no less than four times which is why I googled it before posting this comic. The menu also says that the lettuce is greenhouse grown under “strict rabbinical supervision.”

I guess you learn something new everyday. This is like when I finally learned what Halal meat is.
