Going Nuts

A Korean Air Lines executive threw a tantrum recently on a flight when served macadamia nuts in a bag instead of on a plate. Since then, macadamia sales in South Korea have soared:

“Auction, a South Korean unit of eBay and South Korea’s second-largest e-commerce website, said Monday that sales of macadamias surged nearly 12-fold during the previous five days without any promotions. It said macadamias previously made up 5 percent of its nut sales but were now accounting for almost half.”
