Last Call: No Large Sodas For You!
From The Internet: We generally don’t write about people who aren’t chefs as a professional rule, but today The Media brimmed with disdain for Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s recent large soda ban in New York City. On The View, Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters got into verbal fisticuffs. Alec Baldwin wrote a Furious Column in the Huffington Post. And Stephen Colbert, unable to support him anymore, mercy-killed his pet soda.
HuffPost Food: Yo dawg, I’m a hen, and I heard that you like eggs, so I put an egg in your egg so you can tell the news about it while you..freak out about an egg being inside an egg.
