|"Can't I just finish my chili dogs, sweetie?"|
Just a few hours after the Wide Load FLOTUS issued another one of her food-nazi diets, The Chicago Jesus -- according to the London Daily Mail -- is pounding down the junk food like there's no tomorrow:
Yesterday she unveiled the USDA's new healthy-eating guide, which replaces the famous 'My Pyramid' with a plate divided into four nutritional quadrants: fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins.
But as her husband chowed down at the famous Rudy's Hot Dog with Toledo's mayor, the only sign of 'vegetables' appeared to be some fried onions.
He ordered the house speciality chili dog, which comes with mustard, onion, chili sauce and cheese, and topped it up with a bowl of chili and a portion of fries on
As he entered the restaurant, which claims to sell 8,000 dogs a week, he told the restaurant owners: 'These guys, whatever they want; I'm buying.'
And he teased one of the cooks, USA Today reports, telling the owners: 'She says she's worked here 30 years. That means she was under-age when you hired her.'
Both Mr Obama and his wife Michelle have made healthy eating a focal point of their time at the White House.
..he's buying? Betcha it's taxpayer money! In case you didn't know it, Sluggo and Broad Beam touted this new diet with a logo that they paid over two mil in developing the new logo which replaces the old USDA pyramid. According to an interesting post by Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air:
Wow, what a breakthrough! And if the food pyramid had any relevance to diet selection for Americans, it might even have been worth the two million dollars the USDA spent just to design the logo. Yes, that’s right, it cost taxpayers $2 million for someone to draw a circle, cut it into four quadrants, and then attach labels like FRUITS and VEGETABLES. The $2 million didn’t just go into the logo design, though. According to the New York Times, they spent part of that money doing focus-group testing on circles with two lines, and on a Web site, too — as if millions of people will thunder to it to plan their dinners.
Two Million? Wonder how many chili dogs that woulda bought?
