I think I will have fries with that

The Oklahoma House has passed, 93-7, a bill to insulate food producers from lawsuits by activists who seek to force their personal food choices on everyone.

House Bill 1554, by Dale DeWitt (R-Braman), protects food producers who meet existing state and Federal standards from civil liability for claims of weight gain or obesity. Said DeWitt:

Some individuals don't want to take responsibility for their own health and instead look to put the blame on food producers.

The Senate will consider this bill in due course. Similar measures have passed in sixteen states and are under consideration in twenty others.

And now they're going to go after our salt, too.

Why don't they just get it over with and start handing out government-approved protein pills as our only form of sustenance?

I shudder to think of what a demoralizing effect a skinny Santa Claus will have on our children... ;);)

Just wanted to let you know, speaking of fries,
that the Arby's on Rockwell has got their milkshake machine up and running.
