'New Rules' by Bill Maher: My Addition

Posted by Alan Childress
I am a fan of Bill Maher's "new rules" segment on his HBO show, and here is a link to a recent segment, including this one on his site:

New rule:  You don't have to recall things that would make people sick anyway. General Mills has recalled five million Jeno's frozen pizzas because they might be contaminated with E. coli. Couldn't they just as easily say they're recalling five million strains of E. coli because they might be contaminated with Jeno's pizza? I mean, what's the difference? One gives you stomach cramps and diarrhea, and the other is E. coli! 

I was thinking of this format the other day while eating Chinese food and drinking diet pepsi ("no coke--659363_panda_3

pepsi") out of a cup that proclaimed Panda Express to be "gourmet Chinese cuisine."

New rule:  You can't call your food "gourmet" if it is served by slopping it onto a styrofoam container, at the mall.  From behind a massive sneeze guard.
