[DEFEATED] The Grilled Cheese Act

Postby Eternal Algerstonia » Mon Feb 05, 2024 5:38 pm

Category: Regulation
Area of Effect: Consumer Protection

The General Assembly,

Recognizing the universal significance of grilled cheese as a culinary delight for all ages, whether it be children eating lunch on a weekend, an adult making their own and dipping it in a soup, or anybody looking for a late-night snack;

Acknowledging the diverse and often misguided interpretations of grilled cheese across cultures, and seeking to rectify these misguided interpretations;

Affirming the need for a universally accepted definition to promote grilled cheese purity;

Hereby:

Defines a grilled cheese as containing melted cheese between two slices of toasted bread, served hot, with optional spread on the bread;
  • Defines bread as a baked good made primarily of flour, a leavening agent, water mixed together;
  • Defines cheese as a food made primarily from pressed curds of milk; may also have cream, buttermilk, or any other flavor altering agent;
  • Defines spread as any spreadable food, e.g. butter, mayo, oil, animal fat;

Encourages World Assembly member states to promote variations of grilled cheese to further culinary variations of grilled cheese and to improve the grilled cheese experience for citizens of World Assembly member states multiverse-wide;

Emphasizes the importance of using high-quality cheese and bread in the preparation of grilled cheese, and to toast the bread until golden-brown, not black or light brown, and to ensure the cheese is fully melted without turning to liquid;

The World Assembly requires that all member states shall prohibit any heated sandwich that does not contain only bread, cheese, and spread to be labelled a "grilled cheese sandwich", and that any sandwich not containing only the aforesaid ingredients must be labelled a "melt". The labelling requirements are applicable to all sandwiches sold or imported/exported by any WA state. The Food and Drug Regulatory Agency of the World Assembly is responsible for enforcement of this labelling requirement.

To add to IA: As such, you'll need some non-optional language.

Unconditional support. Grilled cheese unites us all and diverts us from the evils of lactose intolerancy, the eternal snack for nations worldwide.

No support. The common "grilled cheese" is hardly a delicacy and is certainly not a "delight for all ages," and therefore should be left up to interpretation rather than a stiff definition.

The GA got away with pillows. If the GA wants to talk about grilled cheese, be my guest. I am not saying that I am going to vote for it though.

And yes, Alger you still don't have an operative clause.

Eternal Algerstonia wrote:Recognizes any "grilled cheese sandwich" containing any ingredients other than bread, cheese, and spread being a "melt", not a "grilled cheese", e.g. if a sandwich contains cheese, chicken, spread, and bread, it is a chicken melt, not a grilled cheese.
  • Any World Assembly employee will be admonished by their superior should they incorrectly call a melt a grilled cheese.


Change this line to the following:

The World Assembly requires that all member states shall prohibit any heated sandwich that does not contain only bread, cheese, and spread to be labelled a "grilled cheese sandwich", and that any sandwich not containing only the aforesaid ingredients must be labelled a "melt". The labelling requirements are applicable to all sandwiches sold or imported/exported by any WA state. The Food and Drug Regulatory Agency of the World Assembly is responsible for enforcement of this labelling requirement.

Leonardo Raphael's eye twitches at such a suggestion. "If you say such a thing, then it's clear as day you haven't even scratched the SURFACE of grilled cheese. I'm telling you, switch up the cheeses at minimum, you'll see the light."

The witchfinder rises from his seat after completing his silent contemplation of the Lord's suffering. "Toasted bread and cheese maketh a simple and humble breakfast. Be that as it may, there bith no justification for the encouragement of gluttony. Food bith essential for the continuation of our sinful existence, but the carnal pleasures of the mouth are not. Nutrition and indulgence shan't ever meet."
Thou art a wretched ſinner, utterly unworthy o' God’s love. A fountain o' pollucioun bith deep within thy nature, and þͧ liveſt as a winter tree: unprofitable, fit only to be hewn down and burn'd. Steepe thy life in prayer, and hope that God ſees fit to ſhow mercy upon thy corrupted ſoul.
