Next Up in New York's Nanny Rampage: Popcorn, Milkshakes, and Coffee Beverages!


Only if your yard is outside the five boroughs!

This stuff will only stop when voters punish offending politicians:

The New York City Board of Health showed support for limiting sizes of sugary drinks at a Tuesday meeting in Queens. […]

At the meeting, some of the members of board said they should be considering other limits on high-calorie foods.

One member, Bruce Vladeck, thinks limiting the sizes for movie theater popcorn should be considered.

"The popcorn isn't a whole lot better than the soda," Vladeck said.

Another board member thinks milk drinks should fall under the size limits.

"There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories," said board member Dr. Joel Forman.
