Waddayathink? Righteous, or merely rude?
Dissatisfaction with the new, federal school lunch standards has reached a boiling point with some students across the US. The more tech-savvy among them have taken to Twitter to register their complaints, complete with photos of their unappetizing meals.
These images were collected by conservative site The Blaze (by way of Michelle Malkin's always-testy Twitchy), but once you see the photos you'll probably agree that "healthy lunch outrage" transcends partisanship. Warning: salty language (so to speak).

Not gonna miss these Michelle Obama lunch rations everyday next year.- Buck (@awildBUCK) March 31, 2014
Anger with the Obama era federal school lunch standards is hardly new; I've written on it before. And nothing in particular seems to have kicked off this current round of negative publicity for the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, apart from a fresh wave of indignant tweets.
As reported by Politix at the beginning of the current school year, the vast majority of schools have opted to stand by the guidelines imposed by the 2010 legislation. "About one-half percent have dropped out of the program," claimed AP.Via The Blaze.
