Start Hoarding Cookies Now!

Once upon a time, obnoxious busybodies started passing laws banning smoking in public places. When this happened, some of us warned, "next they'll be outlawing fattening foods". The obnoxious busybodies scoffed, "That'll never happen".

Well, apparently while scoffing aloud, deep down inside they were thinking, "That's actually not a bad idea..."

To quote from a proposed Mississippi law: "Any food establishment to which this section applies shall not be allowed to serve food to any person who is obese".

I feel like there should be a long string of exclamation marks after that sentence.

Oh good lord, I hope nothing like this ever comes close to passing. It can't. It won't. Will it? Oh good God I hope not.

What's next? Banning water for the overly hydrated? Refusing to sell a red shirt to someone whose skin tone clashes?
