No lunch for you!


 
“There is no such thing as a free lunch, just ask the kids at Uintah Elementary.” Comment by My Very Funny Nephew



Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City (that’s in Utah – it will be important in a minute) had a large group of students who were behind on their lunch payments. So one of the nutritionist’s went to school to see what was going on. So far so good, right?



Well, the nutritionist could only identify the little freeloaders after they had gone through the lunch line.


Naturally, the best use of resources was implemented.  Trays were snatched away.  Food thrown in the trash.  The elementary school delinquents were given milk and fruit. And, hence the issues were resolved, as they often are, by embarrassing forty kids. 




And since when is fruit back in the school cafeterias? I thought congress had addressed that ridiculous expense by mandating only precooked or packaged food was allowed.  For example, pizza sauce is now, officially, a school lunch vegetable.  (I'm expecting a similar ruling on Ketchup.)    


Aside from implementing a one of dumbest ruling ever, tomatoes, both pre and post sauce, are a fruit.  Would an illustrated produce guide be of any assistance?  



So why is the location important? 


Ah! Let me remind you that gay marriage was legal in Utah for five
minutes. Clearly, reclaiming lunches in the view of the student body is a result of those same sex unions.
