Confident looking mom: "Are you saying your kids are rats? I think you just called your kids rats"
Smarmy looking mom: "..."
Confident looking mom: "Rats. Just saying".
Mandalinn, I laughed so hard, but I fear you're right. Probably they'll pull the anti-intellectual card or the elitist card.
"Those elitist smart@ss Princeton researchers don't have any common sense. Anyone who's anti-popsicle is un-American and has no Family Values. They're Not Like Us Regular Folks. Us Regular Folks eat High Fructose Corn Syrup all the time. Because it's natural. It's American. It helps support the U.S. economy. It supports the troops overseas. Eat More High Fructose Corn Syrup. It's an important part of being a regular, lovable, overweight American. Not a thin, elitist, smarmy, unlovable American."
Or something like that.
