Rich, Fluffy Insanity

In a tasty update on a story I mentioned earlier this week, the Massachusetts legislator who proposed cutting Fluff from schools is now backpedaling, saying he's not "anti-fluff". The best part is that now another state senator has offered up new legislation that would designate the Fluffernutter the "official sandwich of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts":

"I believe we need to preserve the legacy of this local delicacy," Reinstein wrote in the letter to fellow lawmakers. She noted Fluff is free of artificial preservatives or colorings. In an interview, Reinstein said she felt the need to defend the honor of Fluff, protect the rights of parents, and protect a local company. "I'm going to fight to the death for Fluff," Reinstein said. "It's out of control. It's ridiculous that with all the things going on in the state and in the world, we're having this conversation. It's insane." [emp. added]

Indeed it is. Roughly as insane as having an official state sandwich.
