easter egg hunts are fun but they bring back bad memories for me. i remember when i was little i was in an easter egg hunt with a bunch of older kids and i didnt get any eggs because my legs were too short and that pissed me off. jokes on them im taller and faster than them and better at sports whos going to win this fucking easter egg hunt now
sorry, but i call bullshit (at least to the notion that michelle obama is the single source of this culinary hellscape). that crusty fried chicken sandwich in the top picture? i got served that shit in high school fifteen years ago, when michelle obama was an illinois senator’s wife. that ugly mess of ground “beef” and corn and mashed potatoes, with a single sad white roll? that shit’s so familiar i might as well be high-fiving it at a family reunion. our school lunches have been garbage for decades, ever since we let corporations enter the business of feeding schoolchildren on contract, when school lunches stopped being cooked at school and started being cooked in factories and freezer-bagged and microwaved on site. this shitty situation can’t be dropped entirely in michelle obama’s lap: she didn’t start sysco or aramark or maramont or any of the giant food conglomerates that serve up deep fried frozen faux food by the truckload into america’s schools, at a profit. why don’t we hold accountable giant corporations and industry lobbyists- like, i shit you not, the national potato council- who have fought against improving school lunch standards for decades?
michelle obama’s fighting an uphill battle because let’s face it, school districts across the nation are suffering and hemorrhaging money, and school lunches have always been a target of cutbacks. rather than spending money on healthy foods to cut calories and maximize nutrients- re the obama guidelines- schools just cut corners and serve less. their shitty substandard implementation of the guidelines does not mean that the concept of bringing healthier food into public schools is a failed one.
and if you want to change school lunches, instead of complaining to michelle obama on twitter, you can support the local efforts of students, parents and teachers to improve their lunches, like the campaign going on in philadelphia right now. these schoolkids have organized to try and end the contract with their shitty corporate meal provider, and gather support for meals cooked in-school with better ingredients. i guarantee there are fights like this going on in more places than philly, and they could use your help.
Thank you. This post has pissed me off everytime someone I follow reblogs it and finally someone put into words why.
Yeeeeah. What robotmango said. Cos I remember those godawful chicken sandwiches from kindergarten 21 years ago, and I’m pretty sure it was the Clinton’s in the White House back then, not the Obama’s.
Ok and let me add, my mother works for a kitchen. She loves the kids and the job, but she HATES THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF THE KITCHENS.
They NEVER get what they ordered for their meals, or they get too much, too little, or something they didn’t even fucking order at all. Not to mention the various times they came accross ROTTEN FOOD and sent it back to the main kitchens like ‘yo this is not ok’ AND THEY SENT THAT ROTTEN FOOD BACK IN A DIFFERENT BOX.
As well as the ‘head chefs’ not knowing a single god damn thing about cooking either, the recipes they get are seriously fucked up like why would you even cook this like that kind of fucked up.
American school food systems are not ok.

It’s so sad that some of the loveliest and kindest people dislike themselves a lot
have you ever met someone on the internet that you liked so much that you sometimes sit there and think “oh man there are people who are lucky enough to see this person IN THE FLESH ON A REGULAR BASIS and I wonder if they realize how LUCKY they are”
Do you ever wonder if people think that about you?
Paper cuts are a tree’s way of getting revenge.
