Bad news you Starbucks loving dummies. I've figured it out.
Two words: Soylent Green.
For those who don't know. Soylent Green is a sci-fi movie from 1973. Is stars Charlton Heston so is predictably awful. Times are tough in 2022 but The Soylent corporation has introduced a delicious new food ration (Soylent Green) and a zillion New Yorkers are loving it! Too bad it's running out.
Punchline: the good people of NYC have been unwittingly eating the good people of NYC.
