26 years of eating Oreo cookies and I haven't had that massive heart attack yet. I think I might just make it
But thanks, Mr. Joseph, for trying to get your greedy ass into my kitchen
Until a judge disbars and fines an attorney for this type of lawsuit, the idiocy will continue. The venue to argue this is not the courts! If trans-fatty acids are deemed too dangerous for public consumption, it is the legislature's responsibility to ban them or require labels, not the judiciary.
Do you think his first exhibit will be a close-up photo of the dastardly Double Stuf Oreo?
How can you possible attack Oreos without first examining Twinkies? Or candy corn? Maybe candy corn gets a waiver since it was all made back in the early 1900's and we're still munching off of the original stockpile (kinda like how you can't require seatbelts in vintage cars).
I'm with Todd. Let's file a class-action.
There's nothing wrong with popcorn! Orville Redenbacher's Light Natural Gourmet Popcorn only has 60 calories for an entire bag, is very low in fat, and high in fiber. It's the perfect healthy snack.
It's all the garbage that people put on top of popcorn that's bad.
I'm also assuming that normal popcorn is also a healthy snack when compared to potato chips and such.
I don't mean light popcorn, just popcorn that isn't loaded with butter. I just found it odd that it was mixed in with the likes of potato chips and cookies.
I do love my popcorn.
We need get started now. The following will be outlawed:
granola bars (if they have anything like chocolate chips in them)
all cereals[sp] (expect grape nuts of course)
any kind of bread
hot dogs (remember they're made of lips and assholes)
This is the only way we'll all look good in those spandex jackets that Mr Fagen sung of.
Eventually all foods that are not approved by a panel of "experts" will be outlawed. After all we do need to be protected from ourselves, right?
I think the answer is simple, the surgeon general must put warning labels on food products similar to cigarettes.
WARNING: The surgeon general has determined that eating too many Oreo cookies over your lifetime may be hazardous to your health.
Or perhaps some broadcast commercials like:
"This is your waistline, this is your waistline on Oreo cookies" or
"Friends don't let friends eat Oreo cookies"
This lawyer should read the news more often. There was a big hubbub about trans fats several years ago. Where was he then? This ain't nothin' new.
What, you mean popcorn with butter, grated cheese, and bacon bits on top isn't healthy?
I'm pretty sure that how it works in DC and Virginia, where I practice, is that disbarment is usually handled by the state Bar's disciplinary committee, although I seem to remember seeing some cases of disbarment that were either appealed to, or otherwise handled by, the DC Court of Appeals (and, therefore, judges).
Judges can refer matters to the state Bar, though. It's happened in one case I was involved in (it wasn't me who got reported!).
I'm getting awefully tired of some judge or lawyer trying to tell me what they think I should and should not be eating. How about, I'll decide to eat 8 bags of Oreos and suffer the consequences of my actions.
