If you like onions, you won’t have the problems associated with them as much as someone who doesn’t like them. For people who dislike onions, however, the problem extends beyond just a dislike of taste. The onion has many different ways of attacking its opponent.
The first attack is targeted at the eyes. A chef chopping onions in the kitchen will spread the fumes all over the room and often outside of the room. The chemical warfare spreads like wildfire and leaves its victims crying like babies as it hits the eyes.
The second attack to watch for is its ability to hide in areas you wouldn’t expect. For instance, a person may go into a fast food place and order a cheeseburger with no onions. The unsuspecting victim often will bite into the burger without first checking it for hidden onions. The potent taste spreads throughout the mouth attacking every taste bud it can find. This leaves the victim gasping for water or anything that can wash the taste away. It’s a futile move, however, due to the potency of the onion.
The third attack always comes if the second attack is used. If the victim is so unlucky that chopped onions were used on his/her food, the source of energy and nutrition to the victim is now ruined and uneatable. If not, the victim then removes the rings of fire and evil from the burger and reluctantly bites into the sandwich. The victims face will contort into a look of disgust. Although the onions were removed, the juice was left behind and the taste, although not as potent, remains behind.
Big Onion continues to lobby for the extended use of their product. However, forcing those who do not like them to be around them is like forcing a non-smoker to sit in a room where everyone is smoking. For this reason, public places should offer a non-onion section of their restaurants. Even better, this country should pass a no-onion bill so that employees do not have to suffer the smell and tears caused by onions.
