"Have It Your Way" My Ass!

When New York passed the trans fat ban, I applauded.
When Starbucks announced they were purging their foods of trans fat, I said nothing.
But I can no longer sit idle as this silly trans fat ban hits too close to home.

That's right folks, Burger King has announced it will begin cooking without trans fats. This has clearly gone too far.

Lord help me if my Triple Whopper or my Quadruple BK Stacker (which is, in case you don't know -- 4 beef patties, 4 slices of American cheese, 8 strips of bacon, BK Stacker Sauce, 1000 calories, 620 calories from fat, 68 grams of fat, 30 grams of saturated fat, 240 mg of cholesterol, 1800 mg of sodium, and 34 grams of carbs -- I mean, How Yummy Is That???) begin to taste less delicious.

Who is next, Dunkin' Donuts??

Socially-mandated health regulations be damned!! If I want coronary heart disease, increased risk of obesity and diabetes and liver and erectile dysfunction, then by God I have the right to get it through my fast food consumption!

Who's with me on this one?

Anyone? Anyone?

I'm totally with you on this one, the Quadruple BK Stacker is on the "must do" list for when I come over!

And well done to Blogger for finally sorting out the comments; only down for two days. Good going.

I'm totally investing in trans fat futures. I'm certain there is going to be an ugly backlash from the bakers and fry-cooks and I intend to make a little cash off it.
