Next up on Mayor Bloomberg's forbidden-food list: baby-back ribs.
"It's going to kill you," the mayor warned on his WOR radio show once the host informed him that a full rack sold at Outback Steakhouse contains 2,000 calories and 2,600 milligrams of sodium.
Bloomberg has been on an anti-salt crusade lately, so those sky-high numbers didn't go down well.
Realizing he might have gone a bit far, the mayor allowed that the average person could survive a sit-down or two with a heaping plate of ribs.
"We all do things that aren't good for us," he added.
