Lives are at stake!

I was so thoroughly offended by the ads for Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, wherein he brings enlightenment to the shores of fat stupid America with his cocky brand of charm, that I had to get up and walk it off. The promos even threw a few Headless Fatties™ shots in there to make their editorial position clear. The combination of Extreme Home Makeover style TV with childhoodobesity sanctimoniousness...I wanted to choke a bitch. I'd link directly to the promo (it's the 30-second one), but the ABC site is fascist. Makes you watch lots of vids to get to a particular one. LIVES ARE AT STAKE! Jamie says.

  1. I can't tell you how many people I know who are promoting this via facebook. I'm just so goddamned tired of repeating the same lines over and over again--fixating on weight isn't going to help anyone. Why aren't we talking about the real issues here? The Farm Bill, anyone? Hello? Hello?

    It breaks my heard to see Slow Food and other lovely organizations jump on the fattie bashing bandwagon as a way to pimp their products and causes. Do these fucksticks honestly think fat people don't eat real food? Seriously? Oh! But it's the children. The children. The poor, poor children.
