No French fries. Or freedom fries for that matter. The New York City Health Department has issued new guidelines banning fried foods from its work-sponsored meals, telling employees to cut bagels and muffins in half, and saying that if cakes are served for a celebration, they cant be coupled with cookies. According to the Health Department, its about being consistent. The Daily News explains:
"Employees also got a bright-colored brochure stipulating what can and cant be served at meetings and parties. "Tap water is a menu must when food or drinks are served. Other beverages must be less than 25 calories per 8 ounces.
'Cut muffins and bagels into halves or quarters, or order mini sizes. Offer thinly-sliced, whole-grain bread,' the brochure states. Deep-fried foods are an absolute no-no and cannot be served. For celebrations, cake and air-popped popcorn popped at the party and served in brown paper lunch bags are allowed. But when a celebration cake is served, cookies cant be offered.
These standards are mandatory for meetings and events sponsored by the Health Department, the brochure states. The Health Department is leading by example by updating its guidelines for food and beverages served at agency meetings and events, spokeswoman Erin Brady told the News...
Workers were also told to refrain from wearing perfumes or colognes with noticeable odors..."
No Fry Dog ping.
No Frie! Cheeps!
This is just bloody ludicrous.....
Bloomberg is a total moron.
Sounds like the annual Christmas party is going to be a real hoot this year.
If that nasty, statist, neo-victorian little prick had his way, he'd be foisting these rules on private individuals.
Come to think of it, he already has to some degree.
Take away my frie. But no take away my cheeps. Evah.
How about farts with with noticeable odors...”? What’s next? Compulsory corks? Mandatory activated charcoal underwear?
Someone will just make bigger bagels.
People will just take bigger pieces of cake if there aren’t cookies, or will take more cookies if there isn’t any cake.
Liberals are simply obsessive, narcissistic, god-complex control freaks.
Isn't that the point?
No not corks, You could become an explosion hazard.
They will put a tube up your butt (gays will love this) and let your gas fuel your own personal space heater. If you’re cold, it’s your fault. If you’re too hot, it’s your fault.
I’m sure it is amazing to us (normal busy people) that there are people out there with enough time on their hands to be able to worry about what their coworkers are or are not eating. I ate all my veggies Mommy, See? Simply amazing.
Just like Lite cigarettes it accomplishes nothing. People just smoke twice as many or eat twice as much. Or, just go out to eat. Or, fill up your desk with cookies and snacks.
This is not about food at all. IMO
It is all about control of people on a very personal level.
Zieg Heil to you New York
You mean the “HOLIDAY” party don’t you? And Bloomburg can enjoy being by himself. The real party will be at Daisy Buchannan’s. Guiness and Fried Mozzarella Sticks are on me......and there’s more than 25 calories.
“Perfumes or colognes with undetectable odors allowed. Suckers.”

Hey New Yorkers ... come to New Jersey. We fry food AND Teachers Unions!
The NY Health Dept insists on feeding toxic fluoride at every party. Cool. (mandatory tap water)
Ha ha ha! Yes!
They stole my idea. I’m launching my own line of odorless colognes and perfumes this summer. The brand name is ‘Aire’.
Going to market them specifically to idiot Liberals. Each purchase comes with a free ‘carbon credit’. hehe
