Peace out playa, my fav tribute was when Puff Daddy dedicated I'll Be Missing You to him.
That's about 570 junk calories in a large Mello Yellow. Nice.
And does anyone wonder why obesity/being overweight/type II diabetes is an epidemic in our society?
I think stores should also ban 2 liter sodas. Because, you know, folks might drink the whole thing in one sitting.
I also think KFC should ban "buckets" of chicken. I hear some folks buy a whole bucket and don't share with anyone. Also, pizza by the slice only. No one needs a whole pizza.
No one wonders why, but what's that have to do with taking away choices from people? Last time I saw someone forced to eat all these high-fat foods was...never.
Yeah, and we should hire federal "food marshalls" to watch us as we order to be sure we don't overdo it. After all, our insurance premiums will rise if too many people get too fat.
Shhhh! You're ruining my claim for my trumped-up lawsuit that I want to file someday! How can I claim victim status uless I establish that I was forced to "Biggie Size" my meals at Wendys??
Who is taking choice away from anyone? They introduce a 570 calorie drink on their menu, and people show up on this thread in flocks crying about choices being taken away.
From now on, the burger will be named "Seems Bigger Than It Really Is."
Sorry--the Wendy's Health Police guy was standing over my shoulder as I typed that.
Down with Wendy's! We need guvernmint intervention to stop this whole "freedom to choose" thing before it gets out of hand! Only rabbit food that's good for you, at all meals, always! Down with the fascist fast food force-feeding!
Did you read the article and the response to which I was commenting on? It might instruct you before you spout off.

We have to combat the people showing up on this thread in flocks crying about how bad it is that there are choices THEY don't like in the world.
I went on that atkins diet and boxes of popeyes chicken were my best friend. I ate at least 2/3rds of a box 3 times a week. It was pricy but good and in the end I lost about 10 pounds. Its too bad I didn't get to eat any biscuits.
I never wanted to be heard in public saying, "Biggie-size that, please." Or, "I'd like a biggie coke."
I was a little surprised by Richard Simmons feelings about resturaunts reducing serving sizes. He was on one of the news shows the other day calling overeating a (gasp) personal choice.
Goodbye, Mickey D's.
