Fat Taxing

The government has abandoned plans for an obesity tax.

People seem to eat garbage because it's convenient and doesn't involve anything more taxing than shoving a tray into the microwave. Money has little to do with it, as processed food and ready made meals are invariably far more expensive than simple ingredients.

The solution therefore is to give women more time for cooking healthy, raw ingredients by banning them from the workplace (or at least disincentivising them through lower salaries), thus simultaneously solving the unemployment crisis, allowing them to look after their rioting kids and giving them more exercise.

Did I say something wrong?

  1. well I have to disagree on the FAT TAX proposal. Not all people who are fat are earning great income so just to be fair.
