"The escalating war on junk food in schools has targeted a new enemy -- that gooey, sugary, and often irresistible sandwich spread known to children everywhere as Fluff".

Philip McKenna, The Boston Globe

Another Nanny Stater in action. I love the quote from 12 year old Simone Rivard. "There shouldn't be laws saying what you can and can't eat".

Thank you, MJ! I get a kick out of them. I'm glad you enjoyed my rant on behalf of the Fluffernutter as well. Bastards.

From Jennifer's Blog on The Gilded Fork

"Yes; thinking is very difficult; and not done enough for people to realize that government actions like these should go the way of the tea tax -- the one they dealt with Boston-style."

Well said. BTW your nephews are adorable. Smiling

Funny but sad.

Thank you for a good chuckle, Ross.

As much as that was a quip, it did set me off on a rant.

I've got an image of Les Chefs de la Résistance during WW2, holding a secret meeting in the basement of a Paris cafe.

"Non, non. Listen to me, mes amis! United we stand, divided we fall! Remember the warning of the great Chef Pierre: first they came for the foie gras..."

Amen, Simone.
