Words Cannot Describe This Idiocy From The BC Children's Hospital Foundation

In a world awash with nearly never ending opportunities for society (and especially kids) to eat candy and junk food, wouldn't you think that children's hospitals would be among those working diligently to provide us with fewer, not more, opportunities to consume it?

And the icing on the BC Children's Hospital Foundation's incredibly shortsighted and painfully stupid chocolate bar fundraising campaign pictured up above?

Each bar not only contains 520 calories (more than 2 Twix bars) packed with 13 teaspoons of sugar (nearly 16 Oreo's worth) but the damn things also contain 0.4g of artery-clogging trans-fat.

The mind boggles.

Thanks to Jean Burrows for sharing.
