New York City councilman Leroy Comrie wants to use his overweight body as proof of why fast-food toys should be banned. "I am an example," said Comrie, who is hoping to pass the Fast Food Toy Ban Bill. "If you look at me. I enjoy fast food and unhealthy eating." The bill would limit any meal that comes with a toy to under 500 calories, with additional restrictions on fat and salt. "We are not trying to hurt anyone's bottom line. We are trying to help people's bottoms." Well, he's a regular junk food Al Sharpton. Restaurants caught in violation of the ban would face fines ranging from $200 and $2,500.
