Haiku: No Choice Jan Perry


No Choice Jan Perry:

"I'll choose your food. Chew it, too!"

Thinks poor equals dumb.

If you'd like to comment, see if you can do it in the haiku format, which is:

You tell a story in three lines that do not bleed into one another.

The first line is exactly five syllables. The second line is exactly seven. The third line is exactly five.

If you aren't up for the challenge, your comments are still welcome.

Looks like Jan's been chewing a lot of other people's food!

What was funny about the story in the papers today is Huizar and Parks are questioning what "fast food" definition is and want a report back to let them know. What's a "limited menu." Unbelievable this is city council's priority. Since when does the GOVERNMENT TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY SHOULD EAT. Perry's an idiot trying to be this controlling and taking away people's FREEDOM OF CHOICE. If she cared so damn much why isn't there a damn SUPER MARKET in south LA?

Notice the first poster said syllables, not words. I know some of you jack offs mistakenly think it is 5 words, 7 words, 5 words.

That's right. 17 total syllables isn't good enough.

It has to be a line of 5.
Then a line of 7.
Then a line of 5.

The lines should be individual thoughts that can't "bleed" into each other. Ideally, the last line is a conclusion.

We've got plenty more to come. Have fun with it, no matter what your opinion is.

I would bet Jack Hoff knew that a haiku was 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.

I'm down for challenge.
I can count syllables too.
Just don't like haikus.

Make all those fast food fatties go on Sierra Club hikes, and they'll NEED carbs and won't have to worry so much.

But really, some fast food joints have healthier choices like salads without the dressing or just vinegar or salsa, even a grilled burger without mayo, than sit-down places. Nothing worse than pasta bars where they fill you up with carbs and heavy trans-fat margarine cream sauces and bread dripping in more of the stuff. It makes more sense to just post calories and other content like Subway does voluntarily. Which is one reason for its success.

Perry should teach cooking/ shopping/ lifestyle classes instead and cap it off with a Sierra hike.

How come Asian immigrants can eat healthy for less money, even living in the same South and ELA hoods? Because they cook and use veggies.

3:42, I'll take your challenge, and no, I'm not fond of Jack Hoff either.

"Burger, fries and a
coke. Don't bother me, Perry,
I'm busy eating!"

My abuelita always cooked lots of caldos(soups) using fresh vegetables and made menudo using fresh ingredients. The mexicans are know for cooking, using fresh produce and not eating processed food like the gavachos, that is why I am in such good shape, I also I worked very hard in my construction job.

If anybody wants a recipe for my abuelita's caldo(soup) or menudo let me know and I will post it.

And if you want more great stories about my personal life, please let me know, I have thousands of great stories to share with all my fans.

Look around the horseshoe and you will see the worst unfit, unhealthy, over weight politicans in the nation. So they are the last people who should be telling anyone how to eat. This isn't about fast food but a person's right to make their own choice. Leave it to our city council morons to demand they make the choice for the people. Assholes!!

8:22, thank you.

6:32, as to your comment about food, I too am pro-choice. It seems to me Councilwoman Perry is having a difficult time with her weight-loss diet; apparently she believes misery loves company. Now she can spread her misery around her district.

I wonder when she'll come to the realization that under the recent ordinance she promoted, it's now illegal to open retail establishments promoting prepackaged salads (which could be defined as "fast-food salad bars").

Ironic isn't it that Perry and similarly posteriored Gruel want to add late night DASH service on Fridays for Downtown? Shouldn't they promote walking instead? Perry also went out of her way to kill some dollars for exercise equipment in Pershing Square. Unbelievable -- leadership by sound bite rather than example. How embarrassing for Perry would a photograph of her at a drive through be?

A lot of the customers from these fast food restaurants come from USC and not residents of South Central. I don't think government should tell us what to eat. Cigarettes are still legal and they kill.

Jan Perry should shut down those liquor stores not the fast food.
