This is beyond ABSURD!!!!
If they will not serve me, I will just drop by McDs and get my 16 Big Macs to go. ;-)
Will they have scales at the door? Who will say what Obese is?
Nanny state at its worst.
Next they will pass a law to prevent smokers from bars!! Oh, wait thats been done.
It dies every time legislators meet. They don't pass laws reducing government control, they increase it. Land of the free is becoming the nanny state.
THis is silly and a bit excessive.
If I was a nanny stater, I would argue that they should start out by making it illegal for fat people to order desert. THen gradually progress from there...make the fat people sit in the “fat” section and order from “fat” menues.
But I’m not a nanny stater so I would never say that. I think it should be up to the individual restaurants to make up their own “fat” rules...hehe.
Yeah, I wonder if the Alferd Packer Grill at Colorado U serves obese people.
"Named after Colorado's most famous cannibal, the grill offers everything from salads to burgers to "... ??
And all 3 of the candidates we have left are high risks for betraying us on this issue.
Gluttony does cause obesity.
If they are using the CDC standards for obesity, there won’t be anyone left to serve. The Ole Miss football team will have to drive to Alabama in order to eat.
Now I know beyond a reasonable doubt that they're crazy.
You are a little behind the times aren't you?
Once you are issued your National ID card, the magnetic strip on the back will have all your data. God help us.
I’ve already said our one best hope is to get algore to convince these loons that global warming is accelerating at such alarming rates and CO2 exhaled by humans means the only way out is for them to commit mass suicide.
fat people should be embarrassed to eat in public but our society no longer has shame
Here's your mark. I can't tell what she's doing with her right hand, but she might be nursing a smoke.
So, they wanna legislate discrimination?
It’s off the charts insanity.
“If the bars wont serve drunks and the restaurants wont serve fat people, maybe its all designed to keep Ted Kennedy out of Mississippi?”
ROFLMAO! That was my first big laugh of the day. And it’s already past my bedtime, so THANKS! :)
