Poor children in the USA have lost a lot of lard:
The obesity rate among preschool-age children from poor families fell in 19 states and United States territories between 2008 and 2011, federal health officials said Tuesday — the first time a major government report has shown a consistent pattern of decline for low-income children after decades of rising rates.
Today’s announcement reaffirms my belief that together, we are making a real difference in helping kids across the country get a healthier start to life. We know how essential it is to set our youngest children on a path towards a lifetime of healthy eating and physical activity, and the more than 10,000 childcare programs participating in the Let’s Move! Child Care initiative are doing vitally important work on this front.
Just where exactly did all that lard go? Breaking news!
The bus-sized berg behaved like a biological bulwark, blockading sanitary sewers, preventing Londoners from flushing!
CCTV footage shows the 15-tonne mountain of congealed fat and sanitary products in a sewer in Kingston, south-west London. The massive lard lump was first noticed after the residents of a block of flats nearby were unable to flush their toilets. The ‘fatberg’ was blasted by high-powered hoses and took three weeks to clear. Thames Water says it’s the biggest ever recorded in Britain, and was the size of a bus.
The question just begs to be asked:
Has the Obama administration found a secret weapon to use against those evil colonialists in the British Empire?
