Image of the Week

So, as previously reported here, I was traveling a few weeks ago. During a layover at LAX, I grabbed a "Buffalo Chicken Sub" from the Chili's To Go stand. After finishing the sandwich (not bad, considering), about to throw the wrapper away, I noticed the ingredient label which I just had to keep. I present a scan of it here without further comment -- ingredient zen. What's your favorite part??

If it's too difficult to read, I transcribe the label for you, really worth a read if you have the time:
