Mississippi Legislaters Want to Erradicate FAT

Mississippi Pols Seek To Ban Fats
New bill would make it illegal for restaurants to serve the obese

FEBRUARY 1--Mississippi legislators this week introduced a bill that would make it illegal for state-licensed restaurants to serve obese patrons. Bill No. 282, a copy of which you'll find below, is the brainchild of three members of the state's House of Representatives, Republicans W. T. Mayhall, Jr. and John Read, and Democrat Bobby Shows. The bill, which is likely dead on arrival, proposes that the state's Department of Health establish weight criteria after consultation with Mississippi's Council on Obesity. It does not detail what penalties an eatery would face if its grub was served to someone with an excessive body mass index.

Wonder if the waitresses will do the Special K pinch to determine BMI. Or if they will have hula-hoops in various sizes for measuring girth based on age or height.

I guess this means the Subways and McDonalds inside Wal-Marts might face a huge loss of business or pay up.

Hey that might be a good thing for everyone. Don't think the crap most places serve is good for anyone.When they send fat Dad away, the rest of the family will go too. Why don't we just ban unhealthy restaurants!
