Between the Faulknerian family struggle, the worker’s shutting down deliveries, and customers taking to the picket lines, the Market Basket story has always been dramatic. All that was missing was a little comedy.
Until now. Allow us to introduce you to the parody Twitter account MarketBasketBOD. The unknown owner of the account describes it thusly:
We dug ourselves a huge hole and are trying to escape with our egos intact. Dig deeper maybe. See what happens. *Obv not the BOD.
The account just started tweeting on Tuesday, and within the first few hours, Whole Foods, unwittingly or not, got in on the gag.
