Say good-bye to the Easter bunny. The next candy cane you get maybe a stock of celery and the only snicker you will get on Halloween will come with a chuckle. Why? Take a guess. America's children are turning into little fatties.
Pediatricians and Dentist's alike have come together to lobby Congress to add discouraging language regarding sugar laced holiday eating to their new healthcare .
Several other agencies have also said they wish to join forces in this cause including the Tooth Fairies Local Union 526. A spokes person for the union says action on this issue is long over due.
"The amount of tooth loss after these holidays adds about twenty hours a week to the average tooth fairies work load. Not to mention the weight issue. Every year we have more kids that look like Santa than believe he even exists."
The tooth fairies union also suggests they would be glad to re-train some of the laid-off Easter bunnies that any new program might create.
"The bunny rabbits should be easy to train but if they screw up and put an egg under some kids pillow, trust me, they will never hear the end of it."
Lobbyists for the doctor's say they believe that parents should be fined or pay a higher deductible for fat children or for children with too many cavities in a given year.
"Money talks, and the fatties walk. We also believe that healthy children should be rewarded especially if they are willing to turn in their gravy-sucking porker parents."
