Life better after communism

Rip Van Winkle had a hard time waking up after twenty years to find that the American Revolution had happened while he slept. A similar problem faces a Polish worker who just woke up after a nineteen year coma to find Communism swept away, and shelves full of real food.
"He was so amazed to see the colorful streets, the goods," and, "He says the world is prettier now". The article continues, "Grzebski was shocked to see the streets and shops in the town. 'He remembered shelves filled with mustard and vinegar only' under communism."

  1. More food? More choice? More attractive environment? What a bitch.

    Damned free market.
