¡Buen provecho!

November 14, 2008

Did you know that grocery carts have more bacteria than public phones and restrooms? If you use one without at least wiping off the handle with one on the sanitary wipes the stores are starting to provide, you’re taking your life in your hands. But at least, by God, we’re being protected from those dastardly food pushers who are trying to kill us with their evil outdoor grills (third item):

Local health officials are proposing a rule change that would allow restaurants to grill outside whenever they want as long as they prepare and sell the meat inside.

The current ordinance requires food establishments to obtain a separate “onsite cooking” permit that only allows grilling up to 10 days a month. The current rule also allows food to be prepared and stored outside as long as there is adequate cover as well as dish-washing and hand-washing stations.

Yeah, pepare and sell the meat inside. No germs there! How do we ever survive picnics without the help of “local health officials.”

    And we wonder why people are afraid to start a new business? More bureaucrats watching over the shoulder than the number of workers are actually performing the work.

    At least in “some” of the stores, they have a container of “handy-wipes” near the carts …just in case.

    I’ll bet the OCDs love that!

    If you want to get really pissed, just add up the amount of taxpayer dollars it requires in Ft. Wayne alone to dream up, pass, and enforce horsehit like this. Then annualize it, and multiply it by every other major metropolitan city.

    Gosh….we can’t cut gubmint spending can we??

    Yeah, Tim…THIS kind of crap the city WILL enforce, while laws they SHOULD ALREADY BE enforcing fall by the wayside.
