Identity Crisis in Photographs — Part 2

On a recent trip to a grocery store, I found several items which seemed to suffer from an identity crisis and thought that they were too good to pass up in terms of writing an article — so I took photographs of them in what has become the second article in a fun yet irregular series at The Gate called Identity Crisis in Photographs — Part 2.

The first item which caught my eye was New York Bakery Texas Toast — which was on sale in the state of Georgia — with Italian colors on what seem to be flags flanking the name New York.

Italian New York Texas Toast in Georgia?!? That seems to be rather cheesy. I don’t mean to sound crusty; but I don’t remember how much dough it cost.

I suppose I was loafing around too much to determine its price.

What caught my eye next was an English cucumber with its name in French, which was apparently grown in Mexico and was on sale in the produce department of a grocery store in the United States.

That seemed to be pretty seedy to me — and at that moment, unappeeling.

These identity crises were enough to compel one to take an adult multi-vitamin “gummy” by One A Day vitamins, which are manufactured by Bayer…

…only to find out on the label on the reverse side of the bottle that the serving size is 2 “gummies”, as indicated by the red arrow.

I don’t mean to be a pill; but 2 “gummies” — One A Day?

If you are wondering what was part one of this Identity Crisis in Photographs series here at The Gate, this short article from Wednesday, February 11, 2015 included a photograph of a truly global airplane operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines which was parked at a gate in New York…

…meaning that the plane truth is that this Boeing 777-206/ER aircraft — which was built in North America and delivered to a carrier based in Europe on Wednesday, October 4, 2006 — had Asia imprinted on it in several places; and yet the aircraft is named after Machu Picchu, which is a place in South America.

In the original article, I wondered how Africa, Australia and Antarctica could also be incorporated onto this airplane to have it represent all seven continents…

    I didn’t get where you were going with One a Day, until I saw the back label. 2 gummies a day from One a Day? That is pretty hilarious.
