Banned: "No soda with your pizza"


Illegal in New York.
 

Food Nazi Bloomberg bans 2 liter sodas with your pizza
  • Bloomberg goosesteps into his perfect world while the ball-less Sheeple of New York meekly obey the orders of their insane Führer.


Führer Michael Bloomberg unleashes his ban on large sodas on March 12 — and there are some nasty surprises lurking for hardworking families.

Say goodbye to that 2-liter bottle of Coke with your pizza delivery, pitchers of soft drinks at your kid’s birthday party and some bottle-service mixers at your favorite nightclub.

They’d violate Führer Bloomberg’s new rules, which prohibit eateries from serving or selling sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.

Bloomberg’s soda smackdown follows his attacks on salt, sugar, trans fat, smoking and even baby formula reports the New York Post.

The Fascist city Health Department last week began sending brochures to businesses that would be affected by the latest ban, including restaurants, bars and any “food service” establishment subject to letter grades.


The Castrated Sheeple of the United States.
The Sheeple of a once great nation eagerly report to Big Brother castration centers to be "fixed", scanned, tagged like animals and then assigned the proper amount of feed for the day.

An all-powerful Big Brother State tells the Sheeple, "Just give us your balls and you will be safe." And the American Sheeple bleat, "Yes Master.  We obey."


And merchants were shocked to see the broad sweep of the new rules.

“It’s not fair. If you’re gonna tell me what to do, it’s no good,” said Steve DiMaggio of Caruso’s in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. “It’s gonna cost a lot more.”

And consumers, especially families, will soon see how the rules will affect their wallets — forcing them to pay higher unit prices for smaller bottles.

Typically, a pizzeria charges $3 for a 2-liter bottle of Coke. But under the ban, customers would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at a total cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount of soda.

“I really feel bad for the customers,” said Lupe Balbuena of World Pie in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

Deliveryman Philippe Daniba said he had brought countless 2-liter bottles of soda to customers over his 19 years at the restaurant. The ban, he said, “doesn’t make sense.”

Industry-group officials agreed.

“It’s ludicrous,” said Robert Bookman, a lawyer for the New York City Hospitality Alliance. “It’s a sealed bottle of soda you can buy in the supermarket. Why can’t they deliver what you can get in the supermarket?”

Families will get pinched at kid-friendly party places, which will have to chuck their plastic pitchers because most hold 60 ounces — even though such containers are clearly intended for more than one person.

Oh man, that's a horrible news. I couldn't imagine pizza without soda. Thank God I was not in NY. Thank you for the information though. I wish this ban will be revoked soon.
