    The previous law said a cup of tomato paste was considered a serving of vegetables (makes sense), but the new law says as little as two tablespoons of tomato paste are one serving, and therefore a slice of pizza counts as a serving of vegetables. For comparison, one cup equals sixteen (16) tablespoons. They've lowered the requirement eight times. If this goes on, a slice of lemon stirred into a gallon of pudding will be considered a serving of fruit.

    And again, big money runs the world.




    This is why you should occupy Wall Street.

    I'm 5'9 and weigh almost 160... I have almost no body fat all muscles. I'm not saying you need to work out more, I'm saying that being heavier does not imply you are fat.

    Besides, this has nothing to do with the topic FFS!!!! *BOOM*

    Yes, it's a baffling decision but let's not use it as an excuse to insult 312 million people.

    You're forgetting the idea behind this - economy.

    On the same basis the EU stated that snails are fish and carrots are fruit.

    It's not "being an idiot", it's attaching a classification that will allow cheaper import and export of given goods.

    This is simultaneously hilarious, stupid, and horrifying.
    I'd like to classify my foot as some congressperson's ass.
