John Oliver Brilliantly Schools Viewers on Food Waste [Video]

Food waste is a big problem.

We love John Oliver but hate food waste. So, we’re really happy that he gets that ugly food isn’t trash and food waste is lame.

On this past Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver explained to the world that most food waste isn’t actually waste, or trash, but totally viable meal options that just look a bit weird. Mashable picked what could be considered the best quote of the entire show:

“Our produce aisles have become a lot like Leonardo DiCaprio’s penis: exclusively accessible to the physically flawless. And it’s not right.”
