Trigger warning:

This site may, in fact always will contain images and information likely to cause consternation, conniptions, distress, along with moderate to severe bedwetting among statists, wimps, wusses, politicians, lefties, green fascists, and creatures of the state who can't bear the thought of anything that disagrees with their jaded view of the world.

Daily show on Happy meal ban.

I am not sure whether this is edited heavily or not but it is a rather hilarious take on the SF ban on happy meals. The interviewer makes ban proponent, Councilman Eric Mar distinctly uncomfortable with the following exchange:

Interviewer: “So you’ve literally created a nanny state, to get your toy you have to eat your fruit and vegetable?”

Mar: “No, we are saying we want healthier options, from fast food companies in San Francisco if they want to attach a toy to it.”

Int: “But that’s what I just said.”

Another great contradiction in logic is the part:

Int: “Would it be hard to pass a law to force Netflix to send Super Size Me to every parent in San Francisco?”

Mar: “You can't force Netflix, a private company, to do something like that.”

Int: “Are you serious right now?”

Mar: “We have no power to force Netflix or a private company like that to change a business practice.”

“So, on one hand you are like you can’t do that, but on the other hand, you are doing that.”
Mar: “We don’t have that kind of power.”

“You just said you did.”
