Last Sunday on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” Sarah Palin said, “Where are the s’mores ingredients? This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert.”
This isn’t the first time Sarah Palin has taken a shot at the First Lady’s anti-obesity campaign. Palin said on “The Laura Ingraham Radio Show,” “Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat. … Just leave us alone, get off our back.”
“I don’t think Palin realizes how fat we are,” Mr. Random said. “I mean, I definitely can’t be trusted to eat a carrot instead of a hamburger.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report on their website that there has been “a dramatic increase” in obesity rates in the last 20 years, with only two states having obesity rates less than 20%.
On the other side of the fence, a Mrs. Fatopolis commented: “Screw the Obamas! If I want to sit in bed and eat five big macs a day–by God I’m going to do it.”
Though there certainly aren’t any laws being made governing the diet of the average American, advice from any governmental source (good or not) is apparently quite offensive to Palin, who is evidently auditioning for the spokesperson position of S’mores Cereal.
“I don’t understand why she blows things so out of proportion,” Professor O. Bovious remarked. “It’s not like the First Lady tried to outlaw dessert, she merely recommended balance. It’s not like you have to listen.”
