Hunny, You Think KFC Is Still Open?

Yes sir, the Center For Science In The Public Interest is at it again: KFC sued over use of trans fat.

I won't get into the ten million reasons why this is a stupid lawsuit. At Hit and Run, Jacob Sollum explains how accessible KFC's nutritional information is.

But the most damning statement comes from the plaintiff in the case, retired physician Arthur Hoyte, of Rockville, Maryland:

"If I had known that KFC uses an unnatural frying oil, and that their food was so high in trans fat, I would have reconsidered my choices,"

Forget about the fact that he could have just read the nutritional information available online and at every KFC location. This is a doctor, suing because of the health effects of Kentucky Fried Chicken. It's fucking Kentucky Fried Chicken! It may be delicious, but it's not good for you no matter what the chicken is fried in. Fast food is not good for you, period. Everyone's known it for years and it's time for the Center For Science In The Authoritarian Interest to stop playing mommy.
