Washington, DC—First Lady, Michelle Obama, is giving school menus a nutritional makeover. Critics claim this initiative is impacting a recent census on world hunger. Kids all over America are being added, quite unnecessarily, to those starving statistics.
Brussels sprouts were initially a welcome sight on cafeteria trays. “They make wonderful projectiles,” said one young delinquent. The tide, however, is turning as children are becoming hungrier and ornerier.
The new bread is described by one teacher as “stale multi-grain slabs of blandness.” Right before sticking two string beans into his nostrils, one student added, “We want our old bread back!”
In many states, hospitals are reporting a marked increase in tater tot related injuries. Violent food skirmishes, the likes of which have not been seen since the Midwood High Meatball Massacre of 1986, are reaching epidemic proportion, or as one principal put it, “None of our cafeteria workers are safe from pea to flinging pea.”
Michelle Obama responded to critics thusly, “Bread? Let them eat gluten free cake. Oh, and next we’re having unsweetened beets and a wholesome rhubarb concoction is now being stewed into a type of low fat, vitamin rich porridge.”
One 9th grader told reporters, “They say I have to eat the rhubarb and I say, no, no, no.”
When asked if drone strikes will be considered against districts not in compliance with the First Lady’s standards, President Obama said, “No options are off the table…well, a lot of aerodynamic vegetables may be, but no options.”
