Ask and ye shall receive:

Having attacked smoking, trans fats and sugary drinks, the Bloomberg administration is ramping up its campaign against alcohol abuse, The Post has learned.

The city Health Department will be conducting a massive, 50-question telephone survey of New Yorkers to get a better handle on the level of alcohol abuse in the city.

“We routinely conduct surveys about important health issues to learn more about them, and underage and excessive drinking are serious health issues,” said Health Department spokesman Sam Miller.

The Nanny has been known to enjoy a beer from time to time, and there’s a good chance he was staring at a frosted mug of the stuff when he asked himself, “hey, how come I’m not trying to control how much of this everybody can have?” If the mayor is unhappy with the results of the survey, look for Bloomberg to encourage guards at city drunk tanks to go on strike.

Sources at Bloomberg’s Health Ministry tell me that any New Yorker who can make it through all 50 questions without having to go to the bathroom will be deemed to not have a drinking problem — and then the salt, soda, smoking habit and air conditioning usage portions of the interrogation can proceed.
