So… Do You Play It on an Atari Console?

Posted on August 30, 2014 12:00 pm

HHS paid $747,000 to develop a video game to teach to mothers of pre-school age kids how to get their children to eat vegetables.

Really? Last I checked, saying “no dessert until you finish them” is still free.

    So, giving a smaller percentage of that money to the developers of the wildly successful “Candy Crush” game, just to modify it with vegetables, did not occur to them?

    [By the way, there's a joke in there somewhere about how Candy Crowley crushed Mitt Romney in the debate, but I can't distill it.]

    “Cuke. . . . Nuke ‘em!”
    Yeah… ought to be a big seller.

    No, I play it on a Cold Leek-o-vision.

    (Chicken-based games I play on my Nintenders or Pouletstation.)

    Since we all know this is aimed at Obama voters, ( like virtually everything the government does) will they now need free Xboxes to play games on to teach morons how to do yet another basic thing in life?

    Oh wait, they traded their EBT card for one already, never mind.

    How about just making it so welfare leeches can’t buy junk food with their free money since they’re so concerned about fat “poor” kids?

    The internet is filled with games that are 100% free so I’m guessing it doesn’t take $747,000 to make one.

    I will wager that this is not about making kids eat vegies, it’s about transferring taxpayer money to people who will then transfer the money to democratic candidates.

    Maybe…Just maybe, if mothers of pre-school children weren’t playing video games long enough to find this one, their children would already be eating vegetables.

  7. ConnecticutCompromise says:

    One of my friends had a great idea to make her kids want to eat vegetables. She told them they COULDN’T have vegetables because vegetables were “grown up’s food”. Where’s her dolla’s at?

  8. ConnecticutCompromise says:

    I expect the HHS will soon spend even more on a reality show which teaches parents of pre-school children how and where to get vegetables that are not from a 24 hour drive thru window.

    @ CC: Yep –

    “Well, I done played every other game on the Web — Here’s a one from the HHS website what I heard about somehow.”
    * Beeyoop. Ker-Veg!” Yum yum yum *
    “This is so awesome!! [Puts out Marlboro] Where my kids at? I gotta score more real life points by feeding them some vegetables, which I’m gonna go buy now. Thanks, innernet! Damn, I’m glad these geniuses are in charge of my health care!”
    “Yo! I said, where my kids at?”

    Let the busybodies lead by example.

    For me it wasn’t dessert that was used to get me to eat veggies, it was meat and/or fish. I had to eat the veggies first before I could get my meat.
