                Yo Bloomberg – Things Go Better With Coke! Share This Video: Everyone knows that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared war on, among other things, sugary drink and junk food. In their infinite wisdom, Bloomberg and his administration reasoned that reducing the size of containers used to sell “sugary beverages” would help solve what they call an obesity epidemic in New York City. This “wisdom” apparently came with the responsibility to legislate change in the form of, among other things, reducing the size of “sugary beverage” containers in the city under penalty of fines, etc. Yo, Bloomberg! Did you hear about that Swiss guy Serge Roetheli who ran around the world fueled by Coca-Cola? He ran 25,000 miles and drank over 6 tons of Coke and ate McDonalds. http://www.the25000milelovestory.com If “sugary beverages” are making people fat and the average Joe is just too dumb to know what’s good for them then cut to the chase and ban forks and spoons. New York State Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling said that the regulations were “fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences”. HuffPost Live legal expert Mike Sacks says this is “law-speak for too stupid to be legal.” http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/sodaruling0311.pdf Unfortunately, Bloomberg isn’t the only one playing king of your temple. NYC Mayoral Candidate Bill de Blasio has sworn to keep pushing Bloomberg’s bill until it goes through. If nothing else this proves that neither side of the political isle has a monopoly on stupidity. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/de-blasio-bloomberg-soda-article-1.1490333 . Bill de Blasio’s opponent Joe Lhota has made it clear that he is against the ban and promises to withhold the NYC appeal if he becomes Mayor of New York. Just sayin’. The whole state of Mississippi thought the law was stupid enough that they passed an “Anti-Bloomberg” law to keep Bloomberg’s brand of stupidity from seeping into their state. In passing the law, Governor Phil Bryant explained, “ It is simply not the role of the government to micro-regulate citizens’ dietary decisions. The responsibility for one’s personal health depends on individual choices about a proper diet and appropriate exercise.” http://www.triplepundit.com/2013/03/day-ny-soda-ban-down-mississippi-passes-anti-bloomberg-bill/ Put that in your Big Gulp and suck it, Bloomberg! Transcript: Yo Bloomberg! You think drinking 16 ounces of Coke is bad for you? Guess you never hear about the guy who ran 25,000 miles drinking 2 freakin’ gallons of coke every single day! Serge Roetheli – They call him the Swiss Forest Gump. Just look at this guy! He drank 6 tons of this stuff in 5 years! Put that in your Big Gulp and SUCK IT! ..c’mon! If some Swiss guy can do it, I can do it! He ran around the world for charity, I’m gonna run red lights for tips! Both fueled by Coke! SUPERSIZE THAT, BLOOMBERG! You see that? I can do that ALL DAY, Bloomberg! Put that in your Big Gulp and SUCK IT!
