Fat Fought The Law...

Remember this old joke?

‘What has four eyes but still can’t see? Mississippi.’

Perhaps this one would be more appropriate… ‘What has more rolls than all of the bakeries in Mississippi? Mississippians.’

As our nation’s leader in obesity and inactivity, The Magnolia State has decided to take matters into their own hands. Two members of Mississippi’s State legislature have proposed a bill, which would allow health inspectors to revoke restaurant licenses from any establishment that repeatedly feed obese patrons.

The Obesity Action Coalition, albeit physically slow and short of breath, raced to condemn the proposed measure as discriminatory, and is currently pressing the Mississippi House to withdraw the bill.

Even if the Bill comes before the house, which it most likely wont, how would restaurant owners go about protecting their establishments from persecution by the ‘Fat Squad’? How would the State government enforce this law?

Eureka! A contest!

POST YOUR COMMENT BELOW AND TELL ME:

HOW WOULD RESTAURANT OWNERS IN MISSISSIPPI REGULATE OBESE PEOPLE FROM PATRONIZING THEIR RESTAURANT?

OR

HOW WOULD THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI ENFORCE THIS ‘OBESITY’ LAW?

Dammit, now I need a prize.

The best answer given (as determined by me and panel of like-minded individuals) will receive an 18-ball back of Dunlop TI golf balls… FREE (I’ll even pay shipping, if necessary).

If you don’t like golf balls, I’ll take you out for pizza and beer.

But don’t tell anyone in Mississippi.

Raise Taxes like they do w/ cigarettes.
The higher the caloric content the higher the tax. You want a salad...OK, 2% tax. You want a triple cheeseburger w/ fries and a shake...OK, 22%tax.
