Posted on 04/05/2011 1:30:34 PM PDT by La Lydia
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.”
Fried PBJ at the New Jersey State Fair
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
Was it printed on 100% recycled paper? With environmentally-friendly inks? Only one per ten employees with directions to circulate? And usable as toilet paper afterwards?
I didn't think so. 0.5 / s
Just make sure they don't contain any Dihydrogen Monoxide, that stuff can kill you.
“Odorless colognes”? You fiend! Don’t you care how many people will die from the Di-Hydrogen/Monoxide you’ll make it from?
A REAL man, and a real PBJ.
I want you to put an equal amount of blueberries in each muffin.
This is a liberal DREAM. If they can’t ban fun, parties or levity outright, they’ll legislate them into misery so the employees will give up and not have parties anymore.
I suspect a lot of people will eat what they want before the mandatory events and Dictator Bloomberg’s toxic tap water and tasteless slop will sit untouched.
Will these rules apply to Dictator Bloomberg’s birthday party, if his staff throws him one? Didn’t think so.
Meanwhile, back at headquarters...
The Obama’s are scarfing down Kobe steaks, racks of ribs and brats.
‘That healthy crap is only for the little people.’
The Flatulence Deodorizer activated charcoal cloth pads can end embarrassment safely and help you regain your self-confidence and dignity.
And let's not forget about helping to reverse Global Warming
Fantastic! Can I buy stock in your company?
My 95 year old aunt fries everything...and she will out live the pseudo Republican nofunberg
Anagram for spokeswoman Erin Brady: Randy Brie. That’s probably banned also for being too high fat.
Workers can no longer wear perfume with noticeable odors, post pictures or cartoons that may be considered offensive, and must abstain from eavesdropping.
Who is the fascist goon that runs the NYC Department of Health and MENTAL HYGIENE? Inquiring minds want to know...
Biography of Thomas Farley, M.D., M.P.H.
Dr. Farley was appointed New York City Health Commissioner in May 2009. One of the world’s oldest and largest public health agencies, the department has an annual budget of $1.6 billion and more than 6,000 staff. In recent years the agency has undertaken a number of innovative initiatives, including a comprehensive tobacco control program, the elimination of trans fats in restaurant food, a requirement for chain restaurants to post calorie information on menu boards, and development of an electronic health record.
Before joining the Agency, Dr. Farley was chair of the Department of Community Health Sciences at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. He received his MD and Master of Public Health degrees from Tulane University. Trained as a pediatrician, he served in the Centers for Disease Control’s Epidemic Intelligence Service and worked for the CDC and the Louisiana Office of Public Health from 1989 to 2000. During that period he directed programs to control various infectious diseases. He has conducted research and published articles on a wide range of topics, including Legionnaires’ disease, prevention of HIV/STDs, infant mortality, and obesity. Dr. Farley is coauthor with RAND Senior Scientist Deborah Cohen of Prescription for a Healthy Nation (Beacon Press). He served as Senior Adviser to New York City Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden in 2007 and 2008.
That’s insane and perverse enough for some lib fascist to make it so. Don’t give ‘em ideas...
NAZI (National Socialist)
It is not just a Party
It is a way of Life
this is a little too true to be funny...
Eventually they will want to go to what I’ve said but it’s too extreme now.
They get there incrementally. Here’s how they will do it.
It’s called the Dialectic. Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis.
Status quo is thesis. My example is antithesis (extreme opposite, too extreme for most now). Synthesis is their ‘compromise’. ‘Compromise’ would be the guy who suggested the carbon-absorbing underpants. More people would go for this than a tube up their butt.
It also illustrates a flaw inherent in the dialectic process itself. All one really has to do to eventually force people into more extreme positions, since it requires compromise off the thesis position, is simply to always increasingly propose further and further extreme antithesis positions. Status quo versus extremely extreme antithesis still gets you to an extreme compromise position.
It’s time to stop playing the dialectic game with the liberals and democrats.
Great tagline. Work the Confederate battleflag in there, and it would be perfect.
You've just described the Overton Window.
Is it OK if I take 50 of the little half-and-halfs for the coffee, empty them all into a glass, and drink it?
Have to look that one up. What I do know is what I have described is something called the Delphi Technique. That’s not fiction, liberals are using it and have been using it for a long time.
