"I'm going to eat in Joisey!"

In his never-ending assault on obesity, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has ruled that as of July 1, 2012, restaurants in the five boroughs will now serve all foods on plates no larger than five inches in diameter.

The Mayor, in yesterday's news conference, explained that his decision was based on scientific studies indicating that people ate less when there was less food in front of them and having a small plate will remind diners to order more appropriate portions.

When challenged that this latest assault on freedom of choice may be unconstitutional, Mayor Bloomberg disagreed. "People can still order 20-inch steaks and 2-pounds Boston Cream pie from the menu. They'll just be served on 5-inch plates."

A few of the reporters suggested that this ruling may have a negative economic impact on NYC restaurants.
The mayor countered, "...But it will be an economic boom for New York's dry cleaning establishments!"
