Stephen Colbert comments on New York City's Mayor, Michael Bloomberg's plan to ban supersize soda. Unlike the prohibition on alcohol, this prohibition would allow soda, but only if it's under 16 oz or if it's sold in the grocery store. You just couldn't buy them in restaurants, delis, food trucks, movie theaters and sporting arenas. In addition to soda, you wouldn't be able to buy sports drinks either. Any drink that's more than half milk or more than 70% juice would be exempt. So you can buy beer, but not gatorade. You can buy red bull, but not lemonade. You could buy a supersize milkshake with whipped cream on top, but not your favorite's restaurant's house made sweet tea. Confused? I'll let Stephen explain.
