Just When You Think You’ve Seen It All (Lunchtime edition)

There have been all sorts of work rules, but I don’t think I’ve heard of anything like this

“The city’s Health Department is going on a diet. No deep-fried foods served at agency lunches. No cookies and cakes at the same time. And no beverages over 25 calories per ounce: Those are all part of the new health mandate issued to department employees in a little bright-colored brochure ahead of their move from Manhattan to Queens, according to a published report.

The brochure requires that tap water be on the menu when food or drinks are served and suggests bagels or muffins be cut into halves or quarters to reduce the number of calories employees intake, reports the Daily News. Also, thinly sliced, whole-grain bread is a suggested offering at work events.

Aside from the dietary rules, employees are required to adopt good personal and office hygiene habits, namely by avoiding wearing smelly products, eavesdropping and putting up signs co-workers may deem offensive, according to the new set of guidelines for “Life in the Cubicle Village” obtained by the News.”

Hey, kid… whatcha got in the lunch-bag?

    It takes an idiot to raise a cubicle village.

    First person who fills their bottom drawer with ding dongs & cupcakes will find themselves a very wealthy man.

    that depends on your deep-fry source material dims–these 'healthy' oils are useless in putting a decent greazy crisp on anything.

    along party lines, mumbles menino has banned coke from boston city gov't vending machines–did they miss a payment?

    as to ny, this is a service on so many levels–not the least of which is discouraging people from working for the city.

    and finally–transparency!  tap water as a menu item–it's what you've been getting all along for the jacked up bottled water price. . .

      Who said anything about healthy?  Peanut oil is best!


      As for the increasing  controls on our free choices, I wonder how long it will be before we are like the Chinese, with our neighbors "reporting" us to the government for whatever politically correct "transgressions" we have made.


      Notice how libs paint a fancy picture of everyone's free choice until it interferes with some of their feel good ideas?   Killing babies or practicing forms of sex that are practically guaranteed to give you some sort of disease are protected, but eating a freakin' Big Mac is verboten.


      We live in the Bizarro world….
