Doughnuts 1 - Health 0

Fla. doc fired over 'doughnuts equal death' sign (WFS)

A 38-year-old former Army doctor who served in Iraq, Newsom returned home to Panama City a few years ago to run the Bay County Health Department and launched a one-man war on obesity by posting sardonic warnings on an electronic sign outside:

"Sweet Tea (equals) Liquid Sugar."

"Hamburger (equals) Spare Tire."

"French Fries (equals) Thunder Thighs."

He also called out KFC by name to make people think twice about fried chicken.

Then he parodied "America Runs on Dunkin'," the doughnut chain's slogan, with: "America Dies on Dunkin'."

Some power players in the Gulf Coast tourist town decided they had had their fill.
He prolly went a little too far calling out a particular brand. I guess the thread should really read Capatilism 1 - Health 0. (Although, I don't think this guy was going to last very long no matter what, in today's society.)
