Soon, food for those under 18 will be sold only in pureed form.

Although even pureed food can cause a problem if ingested too quickly - all that snorting back out the nose.

You know what, everyone who has died was born (or at least conceived). Life results in death. Ergo we must outlaw life! Starting with do-gooder nanny-staters.

I bet there's a deeper goal here. If the manufacturers don't do it voluntarily, you can bet there will be a call for regulation or litigation to compel it. And then, once you start requiring certain designer food, it's only a short step to regulating the type of food you can create or sell. Permission to create a differently-shaped hotdog will be premised on making it "healthier." PETA will insist it only be made of tofu. ADM will insist on cereal grains it sells, and so on. After all, it's for the children!

There's an investment opportunity here, I think: skinless hot dog patties that fit on a hamburger bun. Move over buggy whip-makers, make room for the hot dog bun-bakers!
