Who Took My Donut?
Good Lord. These people take away my smoking in public and now they want to ban my doughnut munching. Well…you can have my sprinkled chocolate cake doughnut when I’m done internally digesting it.
Don’t people have other, more important, things to worry about in the state of New York? Like…crime? I can guarantee you people have much better things to do in life then to go around looking at the shelves in restaurants in search for ze evil cooking oil. Look, I’m all about health inspectors, but I’m more concerned about being served a rat’s tail in my main course than what oil my french fries were fried in.
Want to know something? I’ve tried "healthy alternatives" and "Vegan crap that calls itself healthy food only to make you feel like a better human being when consumed" type crap. I am an open-minded person and I do like trying other things, but that doesn’t mean I have to like what I’m eating. I’ve done tofu alternatives and believe me, after tasting tofu keylime pie, I’d rather gnaw my own foot off. After running a marathon. Barefoot.
To be honest with you, it’s great that people want to make food healthier. I know how easy it is to be suckered into buying something simply because the package says it’s lower in this, zero in that. But what about simply informing people of what they are eating and having them decide for themselves on what they want to eat in the end? I don’t mind going to McDonald’s and seeing healthier items on the menu, it’s just nice to be offered a CHOICE. And considering I’m a pretty fit person, I workout regularly and I eat decently I don’t feel I should be punished and banned from the foods I love. You only live life once, for cryin’ out loud, enjoy it! And after a bad day at work, I believe it is my God-given right to march right into a restaurant and order a Death by Brownie Sundae to drown my sorrows in. Yes, yes…so bad of me to eat such a fatty delight, but guess what? There’s a simple thing called exercise that eliminates those, "Oh no, what did I just eat?," type feelings.
As for Dr. Walter Fullashit, we are all guilty of loving junk food, but it is up to us as individuals to make our own smart choices in life, instead of allowing the government to swoop in and make such a drastic change.
This world is turning into The Island.
