Lunch Lady In Trouble For Making Food That's 'Too Good'
Swedish Lunchlady Annika Eriksson was all about baking fresh baked bread, and cooking fifteen varieties of specialty prepared and spiced vegetables, chicken, shrimp, and other meats for the kids at her school to lunch it up with.

Unfortunately, the Local is reporting that Annika Eriksson has been forced to put a stop to making the kids actually good food. The municipality that she works for ordered her to "bring it down a notch" because, according to them, it's unfair that the kids at her school get to eat food that good. Admittedly the kids at the school had been getting a little big for their britches, as you can see from this comparative picture of them before Annika started making them high class food, and then six weeks after:
"Something certainly changed."
Annika's supervisor at the school,Katarina Lindberg, offered this quote
"A menu has been developed... It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same."
Why must capitalist countries always embody the worst selfishnesses of capitalism and collectivism always embody the worst uniformities of collectivism. Doesn't it help everybody if someone innovates? Should that not inspire other to do the same, instead of get others to tell her to cease her innovations? I don't know if you've ever had a school lunch, but if anything could use innovating it sure the hell is that.
A typical American School Lunch.
Students and parents have launched a petition in protest of the ridiculous decision, and hopefully that will be enough to sway the hard hearted Stalinites that made this decision to lay off the student's actually tasty choices. But the greed of capitalism isn't help us here either. With giant corporations working hard to keep crap food on your lunch trays here at home, make pizza sauce a vegetable, and overall not giving a damn about how healthy you are if it cuts into their profits... I say it's time. Time to rise up, let us all rise up and Occupy The Lunch Room. Demand healthy, good tasting food. Not let our health be sacrificed to uniformity or the all mighty dollar. Hell no we won't eat! We won't eat your sloppy meat! If you all stand together, protest, and raise your voices loud enough adults will have to listen, and this will be the lunch room of tomorrow:
Now that's what I call class.
