It used to be that Nancy Reagan was trying to get folks to “just say no” to drugs. But these days it seems like every time you turn a corner there’s a boycott being waged on some food product, item of clothing or seemingly innocent activity. From pink slime to Ugg boots there has been a run on restrictions in 2012.
Few foodies were really have been impacted California’s decision to prevent restaurants from serving foie gras. But McDonald’s announcement that they’d no longer use “pink slime” in their burgers touched millions. Mayor Michael Bloomberg won his war against super-sized sodas in New York City, while the USDA expelled whole milk from schools.
A Pennsylvania school principal went after Ugg boots because students were using them to smuggle cellphones into class. While kids were told they could no longer hug in a New Jersey middle school due to reports of “unsuitable physical interactions.” And the entire town of Cocoa, Florida, saw an ordinance enforced that stopped them from wearing low-riding, underwear revealing pants. While some of these choices seem for the ultimate good, others just seem odd. What do you think: What is the weirdest ban of 2012?
