A study of Virginia school cafeteria rated their nutrional value at
slightly less than fast food, with only a few high points that scored
better. The content of corn syrup and hydrogenated oils was higher than
almost all fast food too.

So much for all that nutrional analysis, eh?

When I was growing up, I knew that was some gross stuff, and always
noted how greasy a lot of it was.  

So you see, I was right when I declared the "Thursday Special" was
really ground up horse and fatback...
