Oregon Passes New Food Law

In a 5-4 decision in the Oregon Supreme Court, the state government has ruled that a person can be either “hungry” or “munchy”, but not both.

This ruling comes in the wake of an incident in a local restaurant, when a customer, while deciding what to eat, declared they were both hungry and munchy. There were declarations that a person cannot be both, and a riot ensued.

The decision bears a resemblance to the landmark ruling of Francis v. McDonald’s, where the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that a snack and a meal are not the same thing.

Further deliberation on the ruling’s impact on similar laws is schedule for October 10.
