Tina Dupuy: Tax Anything Beige, Battered,Bite-sized

Tina Dupuy breaks into the LA Times! Dupuy, the winner of the BrooWaHa contest, has an op-ed piece suggesting that California re-institute a snack tax. She writes:

So we can sell the snack tax like this: Tack 10 cents onto anything beige, battered or bite-sized.

And while we’re thrilled Dupuy’s writing for dollars, and hope the LAT takes more from her, we’re not so interested in the state trying behavior modification by snapping our wallets against our pudgy wrists.
