If politicians from ranching states have a beef with plant-based meat, they shouldn’t buy it.

Instead, these members of Congress have introduced the “Real MEAT Act,” which adds new requirements that certain foods be labeled “imitation” and effectively makes the federal government step in as the word police.

That “MEAT” in the title, if you’re wondering, stands for “Marketing Edible Artificials Truthfully,” much like the “DAIRY PRIDE” in the DAIRY PRIDE Act stands for “Defending Against Imitations and Replacements of Yogurt, milk, and cheese to Promote Regular Intake of Dairy Everyday.”

With such atrocious acronyms, do we really want these people to legislate the English language?
