Nanny State Gone Wild: ID for Pudding, Drinking Age for Energy Drinks

The nanny state won’t do much to keep you safe from things that might actually hurt you, such as terrorism and AIDS, which tend to be spread by groups with special privileged status. But it will keep you safe from pudding and energy drinks.

From Once Great Britain:

Robert Nemeti was amazed when he was asked for ID while buying a microwaveable pudding at Tesco.

Mr Nemeti, 24, was going through the self-service checkout when an on-screen warning announced that his purchase had to be ‘approved’.

A member of staff at the store in Southampton hurried over and asked Mr Nemeti to produce identification.

When asked why, the female assistant told him that the Cadbury Hot Chocolate Pudding would get hot when cooked and may burn him.

Fortunately Nemeti was able to convince the staff that he was old enough to buy the pudding.

Mr Nemeti managed to cook and eat the dessert that evening without injury.

From the USSA:

They’ve been the subject of much debate, and now energy drinks are in the cross hairs of health officials in Nassau and Suffolk (New York) counties. Even as the Food and Drug Administration looks into their safety, energy drinks, which are loaded with sugar, caffeine and other stimulants, are as popular as ever among teens. …

Suffolk County could soon be the first to pass an energy drink drinking age. Its Board of Health voted to urge county and federal lawmakers to ban sales to anyone under 19. …

William Spender, a Suffolk County legislator and a medical doctor, said he’ll sponsor the bill if the industry doesn’t label the drinks with better warnings.

With a name like Spender, a career as a moonbat bureaurat was destiny.

As with all infringements on our liberties, this will inevitably lead to further infringements:

To be consistent, coffeehouses would need to card young adults before serving them coffee or tea.

But lest you think our rulers are uptight and overly protective, they continue to encourage schoolchildren to engage in sodomy.

On tips from AC and Bob Roberts.

    Must have an ID to buy pudding. Otherwise you could injure yourself.

    But under-aged school-girls can still be whisked away to have an abortion without their parents knowledge.

    …yet moonbats will still demand that voting be ID-free.

    AC I correct. They fight tooth and nail to keep voter I.D. laws out. But demand that you display your age when drinking sugar. I look for Al Sharpton to have Blacks exempt from this law on grounds of discimination.

    Well, as long as no ID is needed to vote. . .

    Should that happen, the pathologically greedy trial lawyers would then file a class action lawsuit against retailers for selling “harmful” energy drinks to black youth without checking ID.

    Suffolk county had gone bat crazy since it closed the then incompleted LILCO nuclear power plant at Shoreham in the early eighties. LILCO is now gone, replaced by government controlled LIPA which can’t get the lights back on weeks after Sandy’s departure but were able to get the power bills to the lightless customers.

    Don’t worry. The libs will change their minds about requiring ID for voting as soon as it’s time to implement the Mark of the Beast. Then they’ll be all for it. They will say that everyone must have this ID to vote and to even exist. Of course they will brag about doing it to compromise with and reach out to the Republicans.

    They’ll card you for buying superglue.

    Back in the sixtys, the “leftists” and “liberals” screeched and rioted against “government oppression” and “intrusion in our private lives”. Now that they have gained power,

    Back in the sixtys, the “leftists” and “liberals” screeched and rioted against “government oppression” and “intrusion in our private lives”. Now that they have gained power, THEY are far more oppressive than the people they targeted!

    I hope you idiots are proud of yourselves.

  • KHarn

    I don’t know what happened, a notice that I had “already said that” popped up and I had to rewrite my post. Maybe I hit “enter” before I was through.
