"We're going to start legislating what people can eat and how much they can eat?" County Mayor John Rodstrom said. "Certainly I'm not rushing out to craft a law."

His constituency would be too starved to go vote for him if such a law were enacted

TFA: "The vegetarian advocacy organization, which boasts 150,000 members, including 9,000 doctors, cites two gut-busting contests from area restaurants that encourage dangerous levels of artery-clogging consumption."

I can only assume that these 150,000 people don't participate in these events. So what farking business is it of theirs that others might?

Damn Bloomberg started this. Now they'll be saying we can't eat more than 16 oz of roaches.

It's not too often that I agree with you DIA, but this is one of those times. They need to shut the fark up and get back to their salads.

Oh look, busy bodies wanting to tell others how to live.

And, as for those 9000 doctors in that group, are those real doctors in the medical/science fields, or are they like doctors the way 'Doctor Jay' is a Doctor or the way that Doctor Pepper is a Doctor. Because, no offense, but if you have 9000 Doctors, none of them are medical or scientific doctors, but you have people with PhDs in religion, humanities, english, etc... you might as well be boasting that you have a group of 150,000 members with 9000 of them being named Jane.

Subby, that's pretty much right (apart from the cross part). This here is America, and you got a lot of freedom to do some pretty silly shiat. A lot of it is going to be stupid, gross, or even offensive. But that's the way it should be. Keeps the place interesting.

The best part of the article is that pages 2 and 3 are basically a list of local establishments which have "eat this ginormous food item" challenges.

\governments should be encouraging things like this - the more stupid people that die from doing stupid shiat, the better off the rest of us are

I'm guessing they're PhD's, not real doctors.

I'm confused. Why are vegetarians against binge eating? You can binge on veggies just the same.

I mean... I get that people might be against binge eating, especially contests. So, okay. But, it just seems out of the "wheelhouse" of a vegetarian advocacy group.

Because the binge eating is meat and not veggies. If it was a contest to eat a nine pound salad, they wouldn't have said a word.

Stupid tag should have trumped florida, but... I am against these contests.Eating so much so one can Either puke it up later ( or die ) when millions starve is just repugnant to me . Sure, you are the king or queen of cramming hot dogs or wahtever down your gullet.. Big freaking whoop!
And eating like a 4 pound burger so you get a t-shirt and a picture on the wall saying yes, yes you are a pig is less so, because I doubt many try that / do that more than once ( aside from that man vs food guy); but still, it is kind of disgusting, at least to me.
That said- when eating is outlawed only lawyers will eat. Nice try, idiots- but i think NOT.

We need a constitutional amendment that goes something like this:

Congress shall make no law restricting, criminalizing or regulating any activity that doesn't cause a direct, articulable, and quantifiable harm. This excludes increased risk of potential harm.
--------------
Then have it incorporated so it applies to the states and local governments as well.

The scumbag busybodies wouldn't run to mama government whenever someone does something that "offends" them.

Offended

exactly my point. This "ex wife" burrito could have been all beans, hot sauce, and the resultant gas and gastric pain. (All of which would be apropos.)

Not just a vegan-advocacy group, but Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a flat-out PeTArd front group--if the farkers told me the sky was blue, I'd be double-checking :P

(That said, the roach eating stunt was icky, if only because roaches aren't exactly the cleanest critters around. That's pretty much where I draw the line on eating arthropods, though.)

Besides, competitive gourmandery has actually kept one ex-spammer out of trouble; I rather preferred that "Krazy" Kevin Lipsitz engage in competitive eating instead of what he did BEFORE competitive eating (namely, spamming half the damn Internet for some magazine scam that he ended up doing time over). :D

It's OK folks, this crisis has been solved by the FARK Brigade! Please return to passing "freedum laws" in the southern states concerning abstinence-only, DOMA and vaginal probe laws, continue to push Jeebus back into skoolz and be sure to vote Moran underpants into power so we can defeat the Marxist Socialist Commie Muslim Mulatto Osama bin Hussein POTUS and his horde of welfare and illegal voter slackers! Also the other 47% who suckle at the teat of government like old retired hippies just trying to bogart off of "old age" and cut out returning veteran disabilities, who just want spend taxpayer money on medical pot, for which we all know tax dollars could be better spent on giving the dreamy and job creatin' 1% bigger tax breaks, giving corporate tax amnesty, and bigger farm no-grow incentives for hard-workin' TEA-PARTY, GOD IS COUNTRY Republicans !

//AmIdoin'itright??

Meanwhile in America, we hit 40% Obese in one single solitary generation, our healthcare costs are 60% caused by bad diet, and our schools can't compete! But hey, tax cuts for the rich and let's buy more tanks - praise Patroit Jeebus!

Hey, vegetarian activists,

Eat all the tofu you want - heck, I'm eating some right now - but keep your sanctimonious, life-controlling nose out of people's business.

Sadly, a good many doctors are nanny statists. To this group, everything is a "public health concern", which = ban or restrict.

Every day and night across America people let drunk adults get behind the steering wheel of motor vehicles and drive away. There is no way you should say shiat to any adults dining habits while we permit drunk driving to exist. Get fricking real.

Mayonnaise, too. If the government gave a damn about people there would be no mayonnaise. Check out what that crap is made of. You should get a free handgun and ammunition with every jar.

What's in mayonnaise? Egg yolk, salt, mustard, pinch of sugar, lemon juice, white wine vinegar and safflower oil.

If you want to give me a handgun and ammunition in exchange for a jar of handmade goodness, be my guest.

The secret to mayo (Miracle Whip for me however) is that you aren't supposed to just glob it on like you're sealing a crack in your foundation. A thin layer, applied carefully, is delicious, and really not that bad for you, especially if you don't eat it very often.

Leave the MW hate below, I'm sure I'm about to get piled on ^_~
