NEW YORK–A federal judge ruled yesterday that eating yourself into obesity is your own damn fault, much to the dismay of some rather large and irresponsible kids in New York who were hoping to leech off the fat of productive companies.


U.S. District Court Judge Robert Sweet rejected the class action lawsuit (filed last November as reported on Capitalism Magazine) that blamed McDonald’s, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Wendy’s for the poor choices of several unhealthy individuals.  “If consumers know (or reasonably should know),” the judge wrote, “the potential ill health effects of eating at McDonald’s, they cannot blame McDonald’s if they, nonetheless, choose to satiate their appetite with a surfeit of super-sized McDonald’s products.”


Hear, hear! 


Ultimately, kids, shirking personal responsibility will bite you in the ass…and some asses will be wider than others.
