Merrin links to the ABC News report on a new government study that has replaced the term “hunger” with the more politically correct phrase “food insecurity”.
I’m sorry, but “food insecurity” so reminds me of the Phil Hartman SNL skit where Pres. Clinton explained the problems with Somali warlords by stealing customers’ food at a McDonalds. (Video @ SNL website)
And it gets better – there are varying stages of food insecurity: very low food security, low food security, and so on.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go have a chili-cheese dog to stave off my very low food security before the warlords jack it. WARLORDS!!
