    Although from The land of Milk Bags, it's only a matter of time before an idea like this catches on like wild fire and even comes to the US, then before you know it you'll be seeing a warning label as lovely as this on your next order of pizza:

    What a load of nanny-state shit.

    Fucking labels on fatty foods. Plain labeling on cigarettes.

    The bullshit continues.

    Fucking people need to take responsibility for their own fucking actions, and the government needs to stop spending taxpayer bucks on fucking consultants/public servants getting paid to dream up the fucking bullshit.

    I'm going to eat pizza tonight as a big FUCK YOU to the man.

    Then I'll have a diet Coke and wonder why I'm a fat cunt.

    Every time people complain about a product being sold they should ask themselves: Why don't I offer a product which has the perceived benefits of the product without the perceived negatives? I'm sure if all the people who complained pooled their resources together they could easily create a product they yearn for. Until then people are going to eat junkfood because it's relatively cheap, convenient and doesn't taste like ass to most people.

    This shit right here is why no one likes you.

    And because you're fat.

    But mostly because you're a sanctimonious idealistic (and fat) cunt.

    Because this so worked for cigarettes. Its incredibly patronizing to the consumer and fails to address fundamental facets of human nature.

    Simply put, this legislation says "you're all fucking idiots. Look at you. We know BETTER than you. So we're going to have to tax, cajole, punish, and ridicule you until you LISTEN to us".

    They can all take a fucking flying leap.

    God damn I'm still so pissed about the new cig laws. Took away my fucking cloves because they were supposed to be a gateway, when I meet 0 people who smoked cloves before actual cigarettes. Then made it 10 times harder than it already is to get the right pack of cigarettes because the word light on a box somehow was such a fucking potent form of mind control and had to be changed.

    Just another proposed cash grab. Someone should tell these allmighty doctors that there's no taxes on basic grocery items. If you load up your cart with eggs, milk, bread and cereal, no sales tax. Pull a Rootbrian and buy nothing but 2 litre Cokes and potato chips, sorry brah, there's going to be sales tax on that.
