Don't get between an opera singer and her frozen, vegan pad Thai with tofu.

A fight between amateur mezzo soprano Marcella Caprario and fellow shopper Dr. Cathleen London in the frozen-food aisle of the Trader Joe's on the Upper West Side is set to hit Manhattan Criminal Court today.

Ah, New Yorkers. You so funny.

Now, see, if this was in the beer aisle at a Wal-Mart Supercenter in South Carolina, and some guy’s kid was getting between ol’ Billy Earl and that last case of Bud that he wanted? Now THAT I can understand causing a throwdown. But vegan Pad Thai? Pfft.

This is what food survival fights are going to look like when they break out in Manhattan

Some folks are going to be raiding the liquor stores, but when the credit cards dont work, the urban elites will be breaking into and looting Trader Joe’s

Does any sane person think there’s going to be a comfortable way through the apocalypse when libs are duking it out at Trader Joe’s?

Pad Thai???

How much do you want to bet that both shopping baskets had brie cheese in them.

In my neck of the woods getting caught with Vegan Pad Thai in your cart would be grounds for a beat-down, or at least some severe teasing.

Thai rice noodles with eggs, bean sprouts, chilis, a protein (shrimp, chicken, etc.) and that ubiquitous fish sauce, topped with crushed peanuts, maybe some lime.

It’s delicious, but violence over it is not justified.

I must have skipped the vegan part. I understand maybe ditch the eggs and use Tofu for the protein, but how do you replace the fish sauce?

They won’t. I get brie at Trader Joe’s. They import one that is unbelievable and inexpensive. It probably also has more fat than a stick of butter. (I don’t know for sure, I refuse to read the label)

If they are eating the vegan products, they are probably going for the goat cheese selection, which is also pretty good.

As far as I’m concerned, anybody Joy Behar considers an “expert” is automatically questionable. If you read the whole thing, the fight started between the soprano’s husband and the doctor’s teen aged son, who deliberately precipitated it.

Brie is 90% fat. It’s a great low-carb (high fat) food.

“The Joy Behar Show,” as an expert?

The first clue.

“Caprario’s husband, Bill, was reaching on her behalf for the frozen pad Thai and the doctor’s son got in Bill’s way, the singer insists.

“Not that we’re condoning slapping people, but this was justified, reasonable force,” said Caprario’s lawyer, Mark Bederow.”

That’s just gross. It wasn’t just the frozen pad Thai, but it was the frozen pad Thai with tofu.

Who eats that stuff? More importantly, who gets into a fight over that stuff?

BTW, in looking at the pics.......both of them are judged to be guilty.
