Death on a bun

Hungry Jack's tasty - so naturally it's high in fat and salt - Angry Angus burger really riles the food fascists, who are demanding action:

[Heart Foundation chief executive Tony Thirlwell] called on food manufacturers to put pressure on Hungry Jack's to act responsibly before the Government was forced to step in, banning or taxing high-calorie meals.

''This behaviour is not in the best interests of the food industry or the consumers because this burger can cause serious heart disease.''

And the sun causes cancer so let's ban outside activity between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm daily. Better yet, let's figure out some way to tax sunlight exposure -- perhaps all Australians should wear a UV meter and be taxed on their time in the sun. With a bit of thought the government can surely figure out some way to justify taxing the air we breathe. Link respiration to carbon emissions, perhaps.

Update: Jeez, that Angry Angus is one killer burger; I could feel my arteries hardening just watching the Hungry Jack's ad on TV.
