Your Chipotle cup is the most eloquent thing you'll read all day


Good news for folks who haven't gotten through The Tipping Point because they prefer reading Chipotle packaging: the chain is rolling out a series of cups and bags featuring original essays by 10 esteemed comedians and authors. The quick, "two-minute" ramblings are part of a series dubbed "Cultivating Thought", and they're meant to give you food for thought as you intelligently pound your third carnitas burrito. Participating writers include Judd Apatow, Bill Hader, Sarah Silverman, Toni Morrison, Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Lewis, Sheri Fink, George Saunders, Steve Pinker, and Jonathan Safran Foer. This is amazing news for your book club, which previously had a startling lack of tacos. 

Kristin Hunt is a food/drink staff writer for Thrillist, and wishes Saunders had included an essay on quesaritos in Tenth of December. Follow her at @kristin_hunt.
