"Store Bought" Spoils the Potluck Spirit by Jennifer Steinhauer
The title of this article would lead you to believe it's about potlucks, right?
It's mostly about bake sales, which are a whole other animal entirely.
I agree that bringing store bought goods to a bake sale is kind of wrong. After all, the point is to make money for the school.church/whatever as cheaply as possible and homebaked goods are always cheaper than store bought ones. Plus, a higher price tag can be placed on the home baked goods, but who's going to pay $1.00 for 2 Oreos when you can spend $3 and get more than a dozen of them?
But the article clearly uses "pot luck" in the title and not "bake sale". How much of the article is devoted to the potluck?
In a 1346 word article, 158 words were devoted to potlucks, and 47 more words shared potluck and nake sale. The other 1145 words were entirely a rant about bake sales. Don't you think the title should have been " Store Bought Spoils the Bake Sale Spirit"? It's rather misleading to drag potluck into the fray.
