Chicken wings are food but not a meal; people like cop shows, a major university system will require a course in Social Justice to graduate, and you can go to jail for six months in Indiana if you don’t wear a mask. Here’s Simon Black with his weekly tally of absurdities at sovereignman.com:
Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
Governors proclaim chicken wings are not a meal
The pandemic has made Governors so power hungry that they are now telling restaurants what counts as a meal.
States like California and New York are forcing restaurants and bars to only serve alcohol with meals.
That prompted some establishments to add special menu items so that patrons who just wanted a drink didn’t have to order an entire meal.
But now that tactic has caught the eye of Comrade-Governors Newsom and Cuomo.
They have decided that not only is it within their power to tell restaurants if they are allowed to serve drinks and food, but these Governors also claim the power to dictate what counts as a meal.
The dictator of California officially decreed that buffalo chicken wings are not a meal.
Nor are reheated frozen entrees, “pizza bites (as opposed to a pizza)”, or “any small portion of a dish that may constitute a main course when it is not served in a full portion or when it is intended for sharing in small portions.”
And the dictator of New York said the food available has to be “More than just hors d’oeuvres, chicken wings, you had to have some substantive food. The lowest level of substantive food were sandwiches.”
There you have it, sandwiches are a meal, chicken wings are not. So says the politburo.
