    A 26-Page Brownie Recipe? Only At The Pentagon : NPR

    Baking brownies is one of the easiest things you can do in the kitchen. Most recipes have fewer than 10 ingredients, and the instructions are simple — measure, mix, bake.

    Well, not if you're baking for the Pentagon. The latest viral sensation to hit the Internet is a 26-page document laying out all the rules and regulations you need to follow to bake appropriate treats for our men and women in uniform.

    Take Section 3.2.6 of the recipe, for example, which covers eggs. It reads, in part, "Whole eggs may be liquid or frozen and shall have been processed and labeled in accordance with the Regulations Governing the Inspection of Eggs and Egg Products (7 CFR Part 59)."

    The 26 pages does not include the other, referenced, government documents.

    This is why governments should not do healthcare. They are incapable of rational thought.

    People may laugh at the Pentagon for being stupid and inefficient but hey, they are the SMARTEST and MOST EFFICIENT branch of Gov't!

    Our Health Care will be administered even worse than that!
