Better Than You

An early Nanny Award nomination goes to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer John Fauber for this sanctimonious article in which he talks of watching “in horror as a couple and their adolescent boy devoured plates of fried chicken, French fries and coleslaw goopy with mayonnaise” while he dined on “vegetarian Egg Beaters omelets and dry wheat toast.” Helping the ongoing nanny campaign against restaurant portion sizes, Fauber uses the nannies’ newly coined disparaging term to describe what those who enjoy their food enough to clean their plates do: “passive overeating.”

We hope Fauber enjoyed his meal. If he would just leave us alone, maybe we’d enjoy ours too.
