The laws of New York City (not from *The Onion*)

Here is a new one:

Months after it barred schools from holding most food fundraisers, the city says bake sales can go on–as long as no homemade treats with undisclosed calorie counts grace the fold-out tables. The new regulation, designed to combat ever-increasing childhood obesity, limits bake sales to "fresh fruits and vegetables, or one of 27 specific packaged items" that include low-fat Doritos, Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars (blackberry only) and Linden’s Cookies (butter crunch, chocolate chip or fudge chip cookies in two cookie packs) among other things.

The article is here and hat tip goes to Elmira Bayrasli.
