Michael Bloomberg to soda ban critics: Is purchasing two 16-ouncers instead of one 32-ounce too much of an inconvenience to help reverse a national health catastrophe?

It’s starting to make sense now: Michael Bloomberg doesn’t really mind if New Yorkers drink more than 16 ounces of soda, he’s just trying to move some cups.

New York City’s Mayor and self-appointed Health Nanny got a little tired of people complaining that it’s not his place to attempt to ban soda sizes over 16 ounces, so Bloomberg had a recommendation for those who still want 32 ounces worth of sugary drink:

If all you wanted in the first place was a banned 24 ouncer, Bloomberg just encouraged you to drink eight ounces more than you originally wanted — but anything we can do to help reverse a national health catastrophe, right?

Twitchy has much more on Bloomberg’s latest shark jump.

In related news, Mayor Bloomberg has backed a plan to decriminalize open possession of small amounts of marijuana in order to cut down on the number of people police have to arrest during stops. Bloomberg recommends that if you’re carrying pot and want to avoid being questioned by police, do not transport your stash inside a cup larger than 16 ounces. People contacting the Mayor’s office to complain about the marijuana limit are being advised to buy two smaller joints instead of one big one.
