Can You Write a Better Bedtime Story than the USDA?

Liberty Island has a new story contest. Their previous one was “Can You Write Better Than Maureen Dowd?” (the answer is “Yes,” BTW). This one is in reaction to the USDA releasing a kids book to promote approved dietary standards, so now Liberty Island is accepting 400-1000 word stories in the form of federally approved children’s books. Sounds like fun; I might write one if I get some time.

  2. FrankJ, in your story you might emphasize the new USDA guidelines for only cooking pork to 140 degrees…My own theory is that it is Agriculture’s assistance to HHS for a death panel thing… They’re trying to kill the bacon eaters.
