Speaking of banning things. Anyone who finds it a travesty that Washington State lawmakers may soon tell you that you can't napalm your insides with caffeinated alcohol had ought to be glad they don't live in San Francisco. The City by the Bay just voted forbid fast food restaurants from putting free toys in most kids meals.
Mom, I may have accidentally eaten the toy too.
Sorry little Timmy, no shoving your Dreamworks Megamind action figure up your nose until after you eat your broccoli.
The vote came after a long fight by activists that had the audacity to point out that feeding your kid Happy Meals all the time will make them a fat ass.
But in San Francisco, it's not always enough to hold up pictures of jiggly, McNugget munching boys and girls and say "this could happen to you."
There, just like in Washington when it comes to certain productivity enhancing adult beverages, it takes a government edict to get the point across.
