Consumer Reports

Preserving Southern culture by fiat | (UPI) -- Declaring it was "un-Southern," a Georgia state lawmaker has introduced a bill making it illegal for restaurants in the state not to serve sweet tea.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Rep. John Noel, D-Atlanta, and four co-sponsors filed a bill to make it a misdemeanor offense -- "of a high and aggravated nature" -- not to offer sweet tea in any restaurant that serves iced tea. Offenders would face a penalty of up to one year in jail.

The paper reports this all began when Noel got riled at a Cracker Barrel in Chicago that didn't offer sweet tea.

The last straw came when he was denied sweet tea at local restaurant that only offered unsweetened brew.
