Back in my day cookie monster ate cookies.
This whole childhood obesity thing has gotten way out of control. You know why Americans are fat? Cuz we're lazy. It's a fact. And because we're lazy we want the government to take care of everything for us. Which is why we don't complain when New York's Nanny Mayor Bloomberg bans trans-fats in restaurants.
It is not up to the mayor to tell his constituents what they can and can't eat. It is the decision of the customer at a restaurant whether or not to care about the nutritional value of his or her food.
The Declaration of Independence states that there are three inalienable rights "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". I happen to find my happiness in a chocolate chip cookie and it is not up to the mayor and certainly not up to Sesame Street to make me eat fruit instead.
