Two Triple Cheesburgers, Please. Hold The Lettuce.

On first blush, this does seem ridiculous.

"A state lawmaker wants to ban restaurants from serving food to obese customers — but please, don't be offended. He says he never even expected his plan to become law."

Then you think about it a bit. Bars stop serving drunks who are over their limit. Take a puff in public, even in your own car, and people equate you to Hitler.

"It is too oppressive for government to require a restaurant owner to police another human being from their own indiscretions," Holland said Monday.

Is it really? The government requires this of bartenders. You can't sell smokes to teens. Steroids are banned in most sports. Why not put a ban on dangerously overweight people stuffing their faces with potentially heart attack inducing french fries?
