All eyes turned to the Park Slope Food Co-op on Tuesday evening, where as you're probably already aware and don't really give a hoot, members turned down the proposed controversial ban on Israeli food products.
Whether you're proud of the co-op's decision, disappointed with the anticlimactic results, or just thankful the exaggerated drama is over and done with, riled up Park Slope residents on either side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can now bury the hatchet with a hilarious segment from "The Daily Show," as news correspondent Samantha Bee reminds us that wait, we were just talking about a grocery store.
