The subject of late night comedian’s derision for several months, Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s New York City-wide ban on large sodas met an untimely end in March of this year, just days before it was to have gone into effect.

Additionally, they believe they will reduce the total number of obese Britons by 180,000. We learned last week that not everyone is convinced the tax will have any effect on Britain’s obesity rate.
