New York May Restrict Popcorn Next

Now the moviegoers could be next.

New York City officials and Mayor Bloomberg are now considering restrictions on foods like popcorn to milkshakes.
Popcorn may look innocent, but according to New York officials  you should be very frightened.
As a public service we have provided a photo below to give you an idea of how frightened New York should be.


Members of the New York City Board of health have shown support for Bloomberg's proposal. 
They then started thinking of other ways to cut the fat and make life miserable for even more people.
Member Bruce Vladeck proposed limiting movie-theater popcorn containers. 
"The popcorn isn't a whole lot better than the soda," he said. 
Another member suggested limits for milkshakes and "milk-coffee beverages." 
The board, whose members were appointed by Bloomberg, will vote on the mayor's drink proposal -- but agreed to a six-week, public-comment period before taking a vote.

Gee, we wonder how they will vote?
