Nanny Mayor Bloomberg's soda ban prohibits 2-liter bottles with pizza delivery...

Sorry NYC, no more 2-liter bottles with your pizza delivery or pitchers of soft drinks at birthday parties or some bottle-service mixers bars.  Nanny Mayor's new rules takes effect next month and prohibit eateries from serving or selling sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces. 

The city Health Department last week began sending brochures to businesses that would be affected by the latest ban, including restaurants, bars and any "food service" establishment subject to letter grades. 

And merchants were shocked to see the broad sweep of the new rules.  Typically, a pizzeria charges $3 for a 2-liter bottle of Coke. But under the ban, customers would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at a total cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount of soda. 

Spending $300 on a bottle of vodka at a NY hotspot no longer entitles you to a full complement of mixers.  The carafes in which mixers are typically served hold 32 ounces, and the most common mixers - sodas, cranberry juice and tonic water - will be limited. Only water and 100 percent juice will be unlimited.

At least we know he won't be banning extra large sized douches.  He'd have to leave.
