Cheese and canned fruit are healthy

Nanny Rahui's bill on removing GST from healthy food is a godsend for rich pricks and McDonald's franchisees.

Herewith definition of Healthy Food:

healthy food means—

  • (a) fruit and vegetables (including fresh, frozen, canned, and dried):

  • (b) breads and cereals (including all bread, grains, rice, and pasta):

  • (c) milk and milk products (including cheese, yoghurt, and plain milk, but excluding ice cream, cream products, condensed, and flavoured milk):

  • (d) lean meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, nuts, seeds, and legumes.

I love seeing canned fruit with ridiculously high sugar contents defined as healthy.

The following McDonald's burgers contain cheese:

Cheeseburger
Quarter Pounder
Big Mac
Filet 'O' Fish
McChicken
McFeast

These will be exempt from GST under nanny's bill, and therefore more affordable to those who Nanny is trying to protect. Don't get me started on the amount of cheese on a Domino's Pizza.

But the best part of the bill is the exemption for lean meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, nuts, seeds, and legumes. We could call this the Euro exemption.

All the rich pricks who eat at fancy restaurants like Euro (on Auckland's waterfront) will now be charged less for their meat dishes, seafood dishes, dishes that contain eggs, etc. Of course if a dish contains cheese and poultry and eggs, (like a chicken filo wrap) then said rich pricks will be getting even richer by foregoing 12.5% of the bill.

I love it.

We should all submit in favour of this bill. It's delicious.

You can take the McD burger analogy further – contains healthy bread, cheese and meat and vegetables – it is the perfect food.
