Drinking Whiskey and Rye

I recently bought a bottle of Rye Whiskey in Harvard Square. The clerk and I chatted. I learned that there's been a rash of students buying Rye because it's "Gluten Free."

"But all distilled liquors are gluten free," I pointed out.

He then told me some of the students even complain about how much they HATE rye, but they buy it because they've gone gluten free. I was tempted to bring up the potato origins of Russian vodka, but there was a line forming behind me.

When I related this conversation my boss a few days later he replied, "Well, they're Harvard students, not MIT."
