Not to mention that this is going to cost people more money. If they want a 32 oz. drink, now they'll have to buy two 16 oz. drinks, and pay more. Also, if you have a family, and go out for dinner (say to a pizza place), you'll probably have to order individual drinks for everyone, instead of a large bottle and some cups.

How are the fatasses of the world going to retain their girth without junk food and glasses of sugar water? Next they'll tell us smoking is bad too. Save these whales or harvest the blubber for oil and perfume.

London should ban big blubbery PEOPLE at all food outlets. A new "Narrow door" policy will smarten the city up a lot. Not that it's any better in the rest of the country.

Yeah, SMART people will go to mcdonald's and suck down as much sugar water as possible... That's SUCH a good idea.

What kind of White Trash orders a big soda and splits it amongst their family? If you can't afford a soda for everyone, stop having kids.
