Look carefully to the new food guidelines and be sure they are not a political parody

Go to www.mypyramid.org and it is a site not quite what it seems.

You have to look at it carefully but if you start reading you will see the difference.

The real pyramid is bannered "United States Department of Agriculture." The spoof pyramid — at http://www.mypyramid.org — carries the heading "United States Department of Agribusiness."

The real website for the pyramid uses (.gov), not (.org)! www.mypyramid.gov.

The website is a political statement, said Stephen Eisenmenger, a Minneapolis-based website developer, who created the spoof with co-worker Molly Nutting.
