The Power Of Cheese

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.

    This type of blowhard liberalism is what makes the American people a batch of deluded, timid, Nancymen.

    Liberty is about the G not getting so far up in your shit they’re telling you what or who to put in your mouth. It doesn’t mean live in a Mommystate that dictates your sodium consumption…or worse yet, subjects you to the humiliating serfdom of a Naked Body Scanner at the airport.

    The people ARE starting to wake up.I submit that the arrogant Ruling Class realize that the sleeping giant of American Liberty is rousing from its embarrassing slumber. But this is not a time to rest on our laurels, my friends. You only get the flak when you’re over the target, so we have to keep taking scalps (like what is being done with the TSA) and not pull back no matter what they throw at us, be it draconian Mommystate laws, or False Flag Terrorism.

    God Job, Timmy.

    I for one think that there should be heavy marketing for junk food as , junk food and healthy food as healthy food. If I want to be a fat bastard, I’ll go to KFC. If I want to eat healthy I’ll go to Sumo Salad. I don’t want to buy a salad from KFC, EVER.

    McDonnalds has got it all wrong with the happy meals. The reason they are happy is the toys and the 0 nutritional content is just an added bonus.

  • David Garvasi

    As long as I live in America, I’m going to eat what I want, where I want, whenever I want. Can’t handle McDonald’s, BK, or KFC? Here’s a tip: don’t eat there. I take it upon myself to police my nutritional intake. I don’t need anyone else to do that for me. It’s called “having some semblance of intelligence and self control”. Far too lacking in the world we live in today.

    Good on ya, Tim.

    I’m a parent and I don’t like the idea of the government doing the parenting for me. Treats should not be an everyday thing, but still the choice should be left up to us.

    Great article. The Feds need to go back to providing from the common defense and building roads I think.

    Some good edgy content. Good stuff Tim. How’d you get this job anyways?

    • Tim Hoffman

      Thanks Ed. Sorry I took so long to get back to ya. As far as how I got the gig, well lets just say I was given a shot to be a contributor because I have a feel for humorous politics on the internet and my goal is to uncover and analyze the bias as it exists in the “new media” landscape. I’ll be doing an edgy one followed by a serious one, and so on. Unless something jumps out at me. I’m hoping to make it a weekly thing, but I do have to make time for my other job also.

        RIght on. Looking forward to the next article…
