Fat congressmen say fat kids should control themselves

Forbes has noted that a priority of the Republican Congress may be to combat the french fry terrorism of America’s tort lawyers. In March 2004, the House passed the Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act. The Senate has yet to order the bill to the floor — obviously because there are more fat senators who would rather order a pizza to the floor — but Forbes believes that the recent decision by the Second Circuit allowing a suit by two chub-a-lub teens from New York to move forward has ignited a flame broiled fire under Congress’ rear. The Advertising Law Blog has previously discussed the McDonald’s case here. I am left with a couple questions here. First, of the two senators from Massachusetts, Ted “The Hamburgerler” Kennedy and John “Mr. Teresa Heinz” Kerry, who opposes this bill more? I think you have to go with Ted, who brings new meaning to Washington pork. Second, how did these fools in the House come up with such a horrible name? Where is my cheesy (mmm… cheese burger) acronym? How about the FFATT Act? The French Fries Against Tort Terrorists Act. Okay, I need to work on that one.
