image for Fighting Obesity: NYC Mayor Bans Double D Breasts from Breast-Feeding

Dozens of New York City hospitals are instructing mothers of newborns about the myriad benefits of breast milk and to urge them to breast-feed their infants instead of resorting to substandard formulas. "Not only is it healthier than commercial alternatives, it is much, much cheaper," added Dr. Sidney Weingarten, Chief of OB-Gyn at New Amsterdam Medical Center.

When asked to comment about the latest medical initiative, Hizzoner, Mayor Mike Bloomberg of The Big Apple, agreed that breast milk is better and cheaper, but raised concerns that the super-caloric breast milk will further exacerbate the obesity pandemic in the City.

"In fact, added Bloomberg, "I am banning the delivery of any breast milk from breasts that are Double D cups and larger. Violation of my law will mean ten days in jail and no breast pump."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
