Mrs. Obama Declares War on Chick-fil-A

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A.

It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.


The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues.

And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A sandwiches at school.

“They don’t meet the standards,” Principal Paul Browning told the Myrtle Beach Sun News. “We’re struggling with it.”

Hunger pains aside, there’s another consequence to the Chick-fil-A ban – all the profits funded field trips for the school’s special education students.

“The Chick-fil-A profits went directly to the field trips,” the principal told the newspaper. “We’ve got to raise some money, but we will figure something out.”

Maybe they could get the math students to figure out how many carrot sticks they’ll have to sell to send the youngsters to Six Flags.

Ever since Mrs. Obama named herself as America’s Lunch Lady, students across the fruited plain have been in full-scale rebellion. The government mandated smaller portions have been met with great resistance – especially in farming communities.

Since 2010, participation in the National School Lunch Program declined by 1.2 million students. That’s a 3.7 percent drop. Red-blooded American kids are rising up and declaring, “Just Say No to Kumquats.”

School leaders are bracing for the outrage when returning students learn that there won’t be any more bake sales. No more cupcakes. No more Cheese Doodles. Just bottled water and fat-free kale chips – all thanks to Mrs. Obama’s meddling.

Remember that the next time you see Mrs. Obama scarfing down a burrito and chili cheese fries — while telling the rest of us to eat our Brussels sprouts.

Just some food for thought.

Why doesn't she declare war on her alleged husband's unhealthy eating habits before sticking her nose into our children's meals?

This has nothing to do with healthy lunches.  It has to do with liberal intolerance of anyone or anything they don't like and they don't like the Chic-fil-a position on gay marriage.

I don't know if I agree with that. That would have been a whole lot of effort just to get some fast food sandwiches from a corporation they don't like banned from a couple of schools. 

You may be correct.  However, the democrats are not above any cost of money or time to marginalize people or corporations they don't like.

It's actually the Conservatives fault by not getting in the face of these troglodytes and smashing teeth when necessary.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

The conservative lack of response is due to global warming. :thud:
