I can see this idiot sitting back sucking on a super-sized Slurpee while he decrees that the peons be allowed only a certain amount of sugar. Hey, they should be thanking him for for so generous instead of simply outlawing sugar altogether.
Every single menu in New York City could soon be getting a major overhaul if Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way.
The man behind calorie counts is set to announce a new public health initiative to battle obesity, taking aim at super-sized sugary drinks.
In other words, it may soon be time to say goodbye to those Big Gulps, those Slurpees or even Venti at Starbucks, CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis reported.
“That’s okay,” one person said.
No it’s not, according to Mayor Bloomberg, who is set to propose a ban on sugary drinks over 16 ounces everywhere, all across the city.
“I disagree with it, because it’s the right to choose. If you want to drink a Slurpee, you should be allowed to drink a Slurpee,” said Jamie Sawyer, a tourist from Oklahoma.
Being this is America, or at least resembles it still somewhat, what if someone has a thirst requiring more than 16 ounces of their beverage of choice? So what, now that have to buy two, or will the tiny tyrant now set limits on the number people can purchase? And why not order people to carry a card detailing their purchase, with a set limit per month? What about a struggling parent who wants a large drink so they kids can share? Sorry, suckers.
Either way, lovers of sugary drinks said Bloomberg should take a dip.
“Mayor Bloomberg, let us have our Slurpees, please,” one resident said.
It’s come to this. People begging their elected representatives to be allowed to have a Slurpee.
