Bunny Snacking


The purchase of some “Green Goddess” salad dressing lead me inevitably to looking up Annie’s Homegrown — they make those organic Macaroni and Cheese packages with the cute pictures of bunnies all over them — on Wikipedia. Their symbol on the stock exchange is BNNY, and isn’t that adorable? So anyway besides learning about their various corporate takeovers and food recalls was this recent bit of corporate news:

On April 3, 2014 Annie’s opened their doors to their first bakery manufacturing plant purchased from Safeway Inc. located in Joplin, Missouri, that currently has an estimated 100 employees. [53079]

So I took that sentence to my seventh-grade English teacher, the one who made me, as best I can determine, the latest-born person to ever learn how to diagram sentences. She examined this soggy pile of words and explained that the “53079” is the ASCAP registration number, used to sort out royalties for when the sentence is played over the radio, so I’m glad to have that straightened out.

    1. I am not at all positive! But now I learn from looking at Annie’s Homegrown’s history page that in December 2016 someone edited the thing to say the company was bought by Apple for one penny in November 1776. I’m tempted to go seeing what other companies were wiki-vandalized into being sold for a penny to Apple anytime in the Revolutionary War era — heck, I’ll go as late as the Era of Good Feelings (the early Era, anyway) — but not tempted enough to go and do anything about it.
