The Obama administration plans to replace Stephen's favorite Egyptian mortuary-based nutritional diagram. (2:03)

ANY OF YOUR QUESTIONS.

NATION, WE ALL KNOW THE

GOVERNMENT WANTS TO RAM

THEIR HEALTH FOOD AGENDA

DOWN OUR THROATS.

WHICH ISN'T EASY TO DO SINCE

MOST OF THOSE THROATS ARE

BLOCKED BY TOASTER STRUDELS.

WELL, FOLKS, CHECK OUT THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

LATEST ATTACK ON OUR

BELLIES.

>> THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS

MAKING SOME NEW MOVES TO GET

US TO EAT A LITTLE BETTER.

THIS IS THE OLD FOOD PYRAMID,

THERE IT IS.

IT'S OUT, OUT.

THEY'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT.

>> Stephen: NO FOOD PYRAMID?

THAT WAS MY FAVORITE

EGYPTIAN MORTGAGE AREA FACE

NUTRITIONAL DIAGRAM, EVEN

BETTER THAN THE FOOD SPHINX.

AND WHAT ARE THEY PROPOSING

TO REPLACE THE FOOD TOMB?

>> THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

PLANS TO REPLACE THE MUCH

MALIGNED FOOD PYRAMID WITH

JUST A PLATE.

>> Stephen: A PLATE?

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: FOR FOOD?

WHAT'S THE CONNECTION?

AMERICANS DON'T USE PLATES

ANY MORE.

OUR FOOD COMES FROM CASES,

BAGS, CANS, TUBES AND

ENVELOPES MADE OF THEMSELVES.

AND FOLKSES, I GOT TO SAY,

IF YOU ARE'S GOING TO GO

WITH A CIRCULAR FOOD DIAGRAM

WITH WEDGES WHY NOT JUST USE

A PIE CHART.

YOU SEE?

YOU GOT YOUR PROTEINS, YOU

GOT YOUR GRAINS, AND YOU GOT

YOUR FRUIT.

AND I RIGHT NOW AM GOING TO

HAVE MY SERVING OF VEGGIES.

HMMMM, HMMMM, HMMMM, HMMMM,

HMMMM.

BE CAREFUL.

WOOD IS TECHNICALLY A VEGGIE

AND DON'T FORGET TO GET YOUR

DAIRY.

JUST EAT ONE OF THESE A DAY

FOR A BALANCED DIET AND THEN

YOU CAN HAVE DESSERT.
