Mac N’ Mondays: Controversial New Law Just Passed

In a shocking turn of events, the government has passed a law requiring all citizens to eat macaroni and cheese every Monday. This move has sparked widespread outrage, with students at Chamblee leading the charge against this cheesy meal.

“This is disgusting. Why would anyone ever use their government power to do something like this,” said Lindsey Smart (‘25). “What’s next, mandatory taco Tuesdays?”

This bill is making some students choose between their health and freedom.

“I can’t believe this is happening, I’m lactose intolerant, for crying out loud!” said Sarah Johnson (‘24).

Some believe this bill was passed just so the government could control more parts of our lives than they already do.

“This is another clear example of the government trying to control every aspect of our lives,” said James Parker (‘26). 

English teacher Stephen Staples is trying to see the bright side of this law.

“Well, at least it’s not broccoli. But seriously, this is a complete violation of our civil liberties,” said Staples.

Meanwhile, cafeteria staff are scrambling every Monday to meet the demand from mac n’ cheese. 

“We’re talking multiple pounds of Velveeta here—what if we have a shortage?” said lunch lady Doris. “It’s honestly a nightmare!”

Student council president Alex Smart has vowed to take action.

“We will not stand here doing nothing as our rights are being trampled over by the government. We will fight this, we have to,” said Smart.

As this controversial law continues to simmer, students and staff at Chamblee wonder how this law will be enforced. Will there be mac n’ cheese police patrolling the cafeteria? And what about the students who have dietary restrictions? 

“I’m vegan, and mac n cheese is definitely not on my menu to eat,” said Rachel Lee (‘27). “I don’t think it’s fair to enforce something that goes against my dietary beliefs.”

Others are worried about the impact on school resources.

“We already have a tight budget as it is, and now we have to put forward more money to be able to follow the law. This is outrageous! Will the government be paying for all the mac n’ cheese we need?” said Principal Anita Johnson.

But not everyone was opposed to the new law. Some think that this law will provide a delicious meal to start off the week.

“I mean, let’s be real. Mac n’ cheese is so good, I wouldn’t mind eating it every Monday,” said Zach Simons (‘25). 

As the controversy over this law continues to simmer, it is clear that students at Chamblee will not let the government dictate what they eat on Mondays. While many hate the law, very few don’t mind it. Mac n’ Mondays to continue?
