Dear Tofurky fake lunch meat - we're done.

I can put up with the fact that you don't fan out the slices in the package and they are a PITA to separate.
I grudgingly buy you even though the packaging requires me to open a totally new plastic bag to store the Tofurky - and throw out all of the original packaging. Horribly environmentally insensitive.
But I can't stand how much of a PITA it is to open this plasti-wrapped nightmare.
I just attempted to remove the stack of fake meat from plastic's death grip, and it shot out over my computer monitor & landed in a pile of dust on the back of my desk.
