Twenty years from now it will be mandatory

So I distrust this, as I distrust all such pronouncements. But for now, the Food Police are boasting of their latest easy bust:

Breaking news: Everything fun causes death.

The FDA, aka, killjoys, has said it is no longer safe to eat raw cookie dough — even if you’re using one of those Pinterest recipes that doesn’t use raw eggs, according to the Indy News. In fact, the administration said in a new consumer update posted Tuesday, it’s not safe to eat raw flour in any form. Not homemade “play dough,” not licking the spoon of brownie batter. Nothing.

The FDA never finds a thing in the world wrong with, for instance, autostart video.

    Yeah, and they’re apparently now counseling you cook STEAKS to medium-well. Medium-well? I might as well go vegan and eat seitan.

    I’ll take my chances with nice pink (or even red) steak, raw dough, flour, and everything else. ‘Cos even frozen veggies got Listeria, and if I’m going to risk being sickened, I want to be it from something that tastes good.

    As I’ve said before, my immune system gets more exercise than all the rest of me put together.

    Like God intended.
