The First Lady has scored another victory in the battle of the bulge.
The CEO of Darden Restaurants, which owns eatery chains Olive Garden and Red Lobster as well as LongHorn Steakhouse and Capital Grille, said on Thursday the company will work to reduce fat and sodium by 10% over the course of the next five years and 20% over the next decade.

While CEO of Darden Restaurants in 2009, Otis earned a total compensation of $6,661,564, which included a base salary of $992,146, a cash bonus of $1,155,500, stocks granted of $1,707,981, options granted of $2,492,533, and other compensation totaling $313,404.
well.. I guess I wont be going to either one of those places again any time soon, since I am sure their food now tastes like crud.
Only a faggot uses the term “battle of the bulge” when it comes to fatties. I wish these pinheads would come up with something more original that hasn’t already been used.
I have no problem with them making that kind of money if they are making the company a profit. That’s what they are there for.
The burning question for me is why did Wendy’s decide to stop salting their fries? And did Michelle have something to do with it?
I’ll remember that whenever I see pictures of Moosechelle and Hussein eating at Olive Garden or Red Lobster on a regular basis. Oh, I see—that’s strictly for the serfs of their kingdom.
“The First Lady has scored another victory in the battle of the bulge”
Certainly not her bulge.
PG 13 menus?
Looks like those places are now off our list.
me either. I am surprised to see Darden Restaurants didn't hold out for an Obamacare waiver. (or maybe they did get one)
Darden can shove it. I now have a nifty little phone where I can send email from....and I will be sending Darden emails EVERY time I pass a Red Lobster and eat at another fish place....telling them how much I spent. Same goes for Olive Garden...I will go to Macaroni’s or Carrabba’s and let Darden know I CHOSE to go somewhere else and spend $x amount because of their embrace of Hussein’s “suggestions”.
I have HAD IT with fake capitalists who sing the praises of Hussein the socialist.
There. Fixed it.
I’ll bet this guy even flies on a corporate jet, too.
But somehow, I’m guessing he’s going to be exempt from most of King Downgrades new tax increases.
Meanwhile, it’s the white pasta that’s the bigger problem.
Way to go, Michelle.
Just another reason not to eat at Olive Garden, ate their once and their food was garbage. Told myself never to eat there again, this was about a year ago.
Are you kidding? Do a search on Google. Darden DID get a Hussein DEATHCARE waiver.
