Get Crackin’ with Wonderful Pistachios Commercial alongside news of Torres’ planned knee surgery in which “her shinbone will be broken to create more room for cartilage to grow around her kneecap” (source).

I’m sure the pistachios are really tastey, and I hope her surgery goes well on October 20th, but hearing about both at the same time sure doesn’t make me want to Get Crackin’.
