So… Do You Play It on an Atari Console?

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.

  1. 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.]

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

    “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?”
