If there’s a problem, we need a law

I just ordered a slider but oh well

Problem: fatties eating too much at restaurants. Solution, another law.

(Another) problem: even fat people don’t eat all their meals outside the home. Solution, Food Police?

For a long time, I’ve wanted restaurant owners to give a price break  for smaller portions. No luck. They say this would put them out of  business. We need to make it easier for people to choose smaller  portions, which means changes in public policy.

    I thought that’s what doggie bags are for.

    EXACTLY, AJ
    The marginal cost to the restaurant of giving you more than you want is minimal so they do, and thus avoid “cheap portions” critiques or occasional diner who wanted more and is unhappy.
    Portion control: Eat a reasonable amount, then STOP EATING. ( No bureaucrats involved.)

    Here’s a public policy I’d like to see implemented: reduction in the number of bureaucrats, fewer of them, fewer problems to be solved and less tax expenditure. Win-win-win.

    Christopher – don’t give them any ideas. The next thing you know, we’ll have daily visits of the food police to check our hourly food logs. You’ll need blood tests done before you can purchase cheesecake or salami at the grocery store. Expect special “fat taxes” on butter, marbled beef and ice cream.

    It’s all for our own good – doncha know?
