(NEWSER) – "Add peas to your guacamole. Trust us," the New York Times tweeted yesterday, to which the Internet responded emphatically, "Hell, no." In what Consumerist calls a stern lesson that "guacamole should not be despoiled by the likes of the pea," commenters urged the NYT to delete the advice—and perhaps its account—and told it to "go home, it's drunk." Under the hashtag #NYTrecipes, dozens of other "winning combinations" were offered, including adding potatoes to your ice cream, Thousand Island dressing to your milk, or, "broken glass in your tunafish," Poynter reports.
Even President Obama weighed in. He will NOT be putting peas in his guac.
