Skip to comments.Get Ready To See Michelle Obama's Face Plastered All Over Your Local Subway Sandwich Shop
Posted on 01/23/2014 8:39:41 AM PST by hattend
The first lady was expected to announce Thursday that the Subway sandwich chain will spend $41 million over three years to encourage finicky young eaters to eat more food that comes out of the ground or grows on trees. The announcement was being made at a Subway shop near the White House.
Subway will only offer a kids menu that mirrors federal standards for school lunches. That includes offering apples on the side and low-fat or nonfat plain milk or water as a default beverage.

hopefully these damned pictures will be ONLY of her face!
Ought to help the diet...
When I go out to eat, it aint for sandwiches. So, I rarely frequent a Subway. If they are teaming up with her, this means I will ever enter a Subway.
I for one will not be going to SUBWAY EVER AGAIN.
Conceptually, I don’t see anything wrong with encouraging children (and everyone else for that matter) to eat more fruits and vegetables. But that doesn’t mean Federal law regulating anyone’s diet.
Interesting. In another thread I was mentioning that the only restaurant chain my wife and I will patronize is Subway. But if I see Michelle’s mug on their wall I will pass.
Ugh. We don’t often buy Subway but now we will never buy Subway. Government is getting its propaganda tentacles into too many areas.
7000+ comments at the site are running about 100% against Subway running with this.
Another business the Obamas are going to run into the ground.
Yet one more reason to avoid Subway. As if I needed one. Hey Mooch, has Subway agreed to reduce the size of the bread loaf they use on their sandwiches? Last time I looked, their sandwiches are all bread and no meat, and certainly no fresh lettuce and tomatoes.
Furthermore, her ugly mug ought to be enough to discourage anyone from attempting to consume food.
I see that poster I’m not going in.
It’s not exactly a boycott. It’s just that when I see a picture of her I lose my appetite.
Will she be the “before” picture to Jared’s “after”?
Works for both men and women.
The first time I see her face there will be the last time I eat there.
And I will make a public scene telling the manager why.
I refuse to go to the newest Subway here because they have a big sign inside touting the “green-ness” of the new building and how Subway is helping cure Global Warming.
Neither will I.
Waddya mean? Their "footlong" is already an inch shorter!
That’s one way to make people stop eating. The smell of puke will compound the effect.
The Subway I go to here already offers small bags of apples for sale. Haven’t checked on the nonfat milk, but I’m sure that’s already in their cooler too. I usually get a double-meat, double-cheese BMT salad, or their tuna fish sandwich. I can get two meals out of a foot long. I tried their Hot Pastrami, and thought it was very good.
Do you REALLY want to lose half your customers?
Yet another reason not to go to Subway.
Why, because the walls aren't wide enough for pics of her butt? :-)
I'm figuring some sort of promo where she's the "Before" model.
I prefer a locally owned deli for my sandwiches but I don’t mind a Subway sandwich when I’m traveling. But if I walk in and see Michelle glaring at me from a poster on the wall...I’m outa there...probably forever.
The libs can have Subway. I prefer Potbellies, Jimmy Johns, and Tubby’s anyway. But nothing beats a grinder or sub from an independent sub shop or pizzeria. Don’t need Subway shoving Big Mother and her gestapo tactics down our throats.
And watch Subway’s business plummet!
I wish I was a regular Subway patron so I could boycott them.
I can’t imagine how Michelle’s picture will do much to stimulate anybody’s appetite.
Subway is one of 5 sandwich shops close to my home and office. If I want a sandwich, I go to one of the other ones.
I’ll take the Moochelle Obama footlong, please.
That’s dark-meat buffalo rump, topped with arugula, peas, and gubbermint cheese.
Why would I feed my kids low- or fat-free milk and lunch meat made from lips and a$$holes? Subway serves food just as processed as McDonalds. No thanks Mooch, I’ll continue to cook and bake real food for my kids. Back off.
Does subway a new barf stand now..
Hmmmm, I think that this will be fun. I’m looking forward to the next time I go to my local Subway and if I see her picture on the wall. I’m just going to say in a fairly loud voice:
“I was in the mood for a Sub Sandwich. But seeing ‘Her’ on the wall has just convinced me to go to the ‘Hong Kong Buffet’ next door.”
YUP....look for Subway to file for bankruptcy soon...
Turkeys grow on trees?
I’m waiting for Jimmy John’s to start ads with Chris Christie for their “JJ Gargantuan” samich.
Damn and I liked subway.
I’ve already written Subway on their website that if they use this racist, Marie Antionette, Jane Fonda loving hypocrite as their spokesperson, I’ll be eating my subs at Quiznos or Jersey Mike’s.
Don't panic Subway! The comments are negative only because Michelle alone would not be diverse enough. Just pair Michelle with Pajama Boy and everything will work out fine.
I WILL stop by my local Subway restaurants to tell them I will not be patronizing them as long as any photo of this patronizing “First Lady” adorns their walls.
Time to short Subway stock and buy Chick Fil A stock!
God dang it ... Well, it’s onto Jersey Mike’s for me — subs are far better anyway, and I get tired of seeing illegals putting together my subs anyway.
What is really strange is Subway is sinking 41 MILLION dollars over 3 years to promote this. How much does a promotional poster run nowadays? They must be gold plated.
A couple of thousand should cover it, I wonder if the other millions are going to pay for Mooch’s trips?
Go into Subway, order a sub, have them make it. Then point to the picture and the sub, tell them to stuff it.
Of all the sub shops, I prefer Which Wich. Their sandwiches are much better tasting than any other. Subway is the worst!
