Twitter Meme of the Day: Kids Thank Michelle Obama for Gross Food

Michelle Obama has spent a great deal of her time as First Lady promoting healthy eating. The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was signed into law in 2010, allocated funding to provide more nutritious foods in schools and established new USDA guidelines.

And to thank her for her efforts, the kids are complaining.

Students across the country are posting pictures of the very unappetizing school lunches on Twitter with the hashtag "#ThanksMichelleObama." The trend seems to have re-emerged, as kids were doing this back in April of this year as well.

Healthy as they may be - some of the pictures posted on Twitter are pretty horrid looking.

It also seems to have morphed into a bit of a meme with everyone jumping in to share their "lunch."

Baskin Robbins has announced that its flavor of the month will be "First Class Camouflage" in honor of Veterans Day to pay tribute to the troops.

It might look a little strange, but it sounds pretty amazing - a combination of chocolate, salty caramel, and cake-flavored ice cream.

The company also says it will donate 10 cents from each ice cream scoop sold in its U.S. locations to the United Service Organizations (USO).

Move over Alex from Target, meet Alan from Olive Garden.

North Carolina resident Alan Martin "won" a "Never Ending Pasta Pass" for $100 at his local Olive Garden, and he has used it to eat 95 meals over the last six weeks - or what amounts to about $1,510 worth of food.

Only 1000 of the passes were sold, and he says his goal is to eat more than any of the others.

Meanwhile, in Sub-Saharan Africa…

Yes, that is a Double Down (you know, the sandwich with chicken instead of bread) with a beef patty and bacon in the middle. Your heart valves just closed reading that sentence.
