In a bold move the Mayor of San Francisco has lifted the ban that was being put in place on Happy Meals at McDonald’s. In an alternate reality situation in our favorite Halloween by the Sea, this was deemed necessary. This story was covered earlier on this site, but in case you missed it, it explains the origin of the code name we’re using for our lovely city of San Francisco.
Supposedly, the Mayor realized when he was at his local supermarket, that the ban on greasy fun things may not stop there. He saw a box of Captain Crunch and said to himself “what happens next they ban Cap’n Crunch and Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter, because they might have a toy in the box also?” He then said to himself “this has to stop here” http://dailycaller.com/2010/11/13/sf-mayor-vetoes-happy-meal-ban/
In a stunning follow up the Obama Administration has once again seemingly shot itself in the foot.
Now everybody’s been hearing about Michelle Obama and her struggle against child obesity.
After selling more than one million Double Down sandwiches in less than a month, KFC has removed the controversial item from its menu, the restaurant chain announced Monday.The Double Down — marketed as the world’s first-ever bun-less sandwich, with slabs of season chicken instead of bread — was only intended to be sold for a limited time when it was introduced to Canadian KFC restaurants on Oct. 14.Its debut in Canada was met with plenty of hype, as was its introduction in the U.S. months earlier.The sandwich’s whopping 540 calories created a stir with advocates of healthy eating.“To be the source of so much excitement, humour and debate has been a phenomenal experience for KFCs from coast to coast,” Dan Howe, spokesman for Yum! Restaurants Canada, the parent company of KFC in Canada, said in a release.
Well I’ve noticed that not everybody agrees on the policy of handing out dried fruits from the Oval Office for the kiddies onHalloween.In fact some people have and continue to rise their middle finger high in the air against such practices.These opinions are not limited to America itself. Our friends north of the border seem to agree with the occasional bad eating habits. Here is an example :
This beautiful sandwich was created in protest by 4 friends from Montreal. Dubbed the “Angry French-Canadian,” the 5,343-calorie super-sized sarnie contains an entire package of bacon, three hot dogs, and poutine (French fries topped with fresh cheese curds, covered with brown gravy), all crushed between a 20-inch French toast baguette cooked with a dozen eggs and dripping in maple syrup. The total amount of fat — 207 grams.
“We wanted to say, ‘We’re Canadian and we’re crazy too. We’ll eat you under the table if we have to’,” Harley Morenstein, the sandwich’s co-creator, told the Toronto Star.
With Thanksgiving coming up this week, I know that indulgence is most definitely on alot of Americans minds. I for one believe that this Thursday is a time for giving thanks and spending time with friends and family, and is also a time to enjoy all of the hard work you’ve put in this year so far. I’ll be eating as much as I want Thursday, but I’ll be putting in some time at the gym to offset as much as I can. Anyways, I hope everybody has a Happy Thanksgiving, and have an extra helping because you deserve it.
