The New Puritans

Worried that somewhere, someone is having unapproved fun.

Case in point.

Early next year, the FDA is expected to finalize a new regulation intended to eradicat…trans fats, from our diets.

… threatens to eliminate the noble “sprinkle,” used to decorate holiday treats and donuts.


So no sprinkles for the kiddies.


When did it become the govt’s job to decide how I can defile my body?

I know, the War on (Some) Drugs.

Drugs without corporate backing (via bribing the asshole bureaucraps at the FDA)  are verboten.

Assholes, if I want sprinkles on my Big Gulp with extra salt it’s not the govt’s business.

So goes more of our freedom.

  1. This is all an understandable part of the intertwining of individual actions with public responsibility. If, through crap like Obamacare, et al., we are all responsible for the consequences of each others’ behavior, then we want to CONTROL behavior that will cost us money. And virtually all behavior costs someone money…so when the consequences don’t stay with the individual, but get spread out over the public, then some asshole politician/bureaucrat gets to decide just what you can and cannot do…right down to the sprinkles.

  2. If they ban Sprinkles I personally vow to form an international cartel of Sprinkle Smugglers – hell-bent upon infesting the children and the weak-willed with Sprinkle addiction!
