When Bloomberg is President...

...the Quadruple Bypass Burger will be illegal.

If you live in Tempe, Arizona, you can still get one at the Heart Attack Grill ("Taste Worth Dying For"), served by a hot 'nurse,' (which has apparently brought on a lawsuit by the Arizona State Board of Nursing). Wheelchair service is reportedly included. And if you manage to get it all down without dying, you can get flatliner fries as well.

It's a testament to our PC, health-conscious culture that places like this and FatBurger survive and flourish. I suspect it's only a matter of time before they face a lawsuit from the estate of some heart attack victim who happened to have dined there. Gorge yourself before they go away.

By the way, it's interesting to me that Rudy Giuliani is regarded on the Left as an intrusive proponent of the prurient nanny state because he cracked down on crime and made New York City manageable again. Michael Bloomberg by contrast, is trying to eliminate smoking and trans fats - to start with. And you hear hardly a complaint from the Left about 'letting us alone' and 'respecting individual choice.'

Could it be because Bloomberg is a liberal, and Giuliani a 'conservative?'

Back to the top.

Great post, thank you. I've written about a possible Bloomberg '08 candidacy on my blog at I think with his money and smarts--along with the country's yearning for another alternative to the two party system, it might just work for him.
