Eat As I Say, Not As I Eat

During my Army days, I drank the water on three continents, ate barbequed dog with a Korean mortar team, swilled swallow’s nest soup with a gaggle of Khanh Hoa boom-boom girls, munched salted durian chips (a thorny, foul-smelling fruit once described as a cross between “pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock”) in a Bangkok movie house, guzzled untold gallons of Ba Muoi Ba (Vietnamese beer flavored wonderfully, so it was rumored, with formaldehyde and rat piss) and the only chow that ever made me ill came out of my own mess tent; but I believe I’d still rather scarf down a rusty can of C-ration ham & limas than partake of Michelle Obama’s mandatory tofu delights:

Michelle Obama Targets Military Food: ‘Don’t Worry, You‘ll Be a Vegetable Guy Soon’

“Thank you for eating your vegetables. We need you strong.”

Hold the mystery meat: Military mess halls soon will be serving more fruits, vegetables and low-fat dishes under the first program in 20 years to improve nutrition standards across the armed services.

First lady Michelle Obama and Pentagon officials announced the effort Thursday during a visit to Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas, where the military has been experimenting with ways to improve the quality and variety of foods served on base. The first lady toured a gleaming cafeteria line, then announced the program in a dining hall filled with service members whose plates were overflowing with salad greens, broccoli and whole grains.

Salad greens, broccoli and whole grains??  Is this the armed services or a San Francisco sidewalk bistro?  Hey, Michelle, fighting men need meat—and everybody but left-wing meat-heads knows it.

    The Mooch, and other “anointed” elites like her, just can’t help themselves. They know SO much more than you what’s good for you. Not for them, but for you. Thanks for the trackback.

    Great Post Bob.
    I saw her efforts to take on the mess halls over on Drudge.
    Just another indication of the arrogance she has to even attempt to change the menu that the troops have relied upon for years.
    SOS is sounding pretty good right now.
    Put her fat ass in the kitchen and let her cook for the troops.
    Unbelievable !
