Chow Getting Dressed

The good people of the Association for Dressings and Sauces have compiled some data about favorite salad dressings and salad-dressers’ astrological sign. The findings (shockingly) do not seem to reflect accepted notions about character dictated by the stars. For instance:
Aquarians tend to be “team-players.” As such, they prefer the most popular salad dressing flavor, Ranch.
Capricorns like variety. Their love of variety makes them flexible and changeable and the life of the party. They’re always trying new things and, therefore, tend to have a lot of different salad dressing flavors on hand at any given time.
More startling results:
Cancers either thrive on intense competition or are very stressed out by it and those who enjoy competition usually hold jobs in sales.
Sagittarians either love competition or hate it and are more likely to be female.
Traci Gibson over at the Association says it was a nationwide telephone survey, with respondents 18 years of age or older, 480 males and 520 females.

(I’ve just learned that as a blue cheese fan, I’m among the wittiest of salad dressing users—or at least I think I am! I am also most likely to be middle-aged and male. And when it comes to how you dress your salad, surprisingly, “Toppers…tend to be more shy than their mixing and dipping counterparts.” Those toppers are always such wallflowers!)
