"Under a new city policy, kids spending their summer days at the city pools may not buy ice cream—the quintessential childhood delight on a hot summer day—because city officials don't think it's healthy." —Editorial, The Boulder (Colorado) Daily Camera, July 2, 2016
First they came for the ice cream
And I did not protest
Because ice cream is fattening.
Then they came for the hot dogs
And I did not march
Because hot dogs are carcinogenic.
Then they came for the hamburgers
And I did not shout
Because hamburgers clog the arteries.
Then they came for the customers
Because they do not choose wisely.
And so there was no one left
To eat politically incorrect.
