Michelle Obama: You can’t buy potatoes with food stamps, unless it’s at a strip club

Mooch says ixnay on the spuds-ay:

Right now, the House of Representatives is considering a bill to override science by mandating that white potatoes be included on the list of foods that women can purchase using WIC dollars. Now, there is nothing wrong with potatoes. The problem is that many women and children already consume enough potatoes and not enough of the nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables they need. That’s why the Institute of Medicine — the nonpartisan, scientific body that advises on the standards for WIC — has said that potatoes should not be part of the WIC program.

If you like potatoes, you’re anti-science!

But if you’re using your food stamps to buy lap dances, that’s still OK. Because it must count as “exercise,” or something.
