Chipotle: Cultivating Thought While You Snarf

Insights by Toni Morrison, Jonathan Safran Foer, Malcolm Gladwell and Sarah Silverman

chipNeed something besides the newspaper (or your daily to-do list) to read at lunch? Chipotle’s got you covered.

In clever, hipster style, the ubiquitous Mexican grill is printing original essays, quotes and humorous thoughts by 10 “thought leaders” on its cups and bags, starting this week. With, of course, Etsy-esque artwork that’ll make Starbucks green with envy.

Who, might you ask, would be influential enough to tap for this project? Turns out its a who’s who of intelligencia  including Jonathan Safran Foer, Pulitzer prize winning reporter Sheri Fink, Malcolm Gladwell, experimental psychologist Steve Pinker, Toni Morrison and a few less, well, erudite (but equally entertaining and thought-provoking) Hollywood types including Judd Apatow, Bill Hader, and (BiteClub fave) Sarah Silverman.

One of my favorites “thoughts: is by Bill Saunders: “Hope that, in future, all is well, everyone eats free, no one must work, all just sit around feeling love for one another.”  Eating free is especially tempting!

Hey, at least its a little more entertaining than the quotes on the bottom of In ‘N Out cups. (Cue thunder striking me down).
