trim the fat
And you wonder how I could fall for that Ninja lawsuit hoax. This is why. It just would not be that far fetched considering the lawsuits that are filed these days.
Lawyers have filed a class-action lawsuit against McDonald's on behalf of New York children who have suffered health problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.
In federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday, a lawyer alleged that the fast-food chain has created a national epidemic of obese children. Samuel Hirsch argued that the high fat, sugar and cholesterol content of McDonald's food is "a very insipid, toxic kind of thing" when ingested regularly by young kids.
The plaintiffs include a Bronx teen who ate every meal at McDonald's for three years while living in a homeless shelter. Another is a 13-year-old boy from Staten Island who says he ate at McDonald's food three to four times a week and is now 5-foot-4 and 278 pounds.
Perhaps there should be a lawyer who will file a lawsuit against the parents of these kids. A 278 pound 13 year old is obviously not getting the proper nutrition or exercise he needs. Nor is he getting the right guidance as far as nutrition goes if he eats McDonald's three or four times a week.
Fast food doesn't kill people. People kill people.
What the parents of these kids should do, instead of running for a lawyer, is first of all take their children to a physician so they can go on a proper diet. Get them to a gym. Supervise their nutrition.
Once again, we have parents laying the blame for their kids behavior on something else besides their own laziness and ignorance. Did the mother of that 13 year old not see him getting fat? I'm sure he didn't just blow up overnight. There had to be signs. What was she thinking when she had to buy him clothes in the large men's department instead of the young boy's department? A person cannot be that dense to not know that their child is dangerously obese and they should do something about.
And that something does not mean calling an attorney because your child has been fed garbage for the past 13 years.
Wake the fuck up, people. You are ruining your kids. Set a good model for them. Accept responsibilty for your behavior and teach them to do the same.
