The Fox News conservative opinion host Neil Cavuto engaged in a bizarre shouting match with a law professor he called part of the "food police," over a push to convince lawmakers to ban the fast food mascot Ronald McDonald.

GWU School of Law professor John Banzhaf suggested the clown hamburger purveyor should be banned from advertising, much in the way lawmakers banned the cigarette mascot Joe Camel.

Cavuto nearly exploded at the suggestion and accused Banzhaf of wanting to see tens of thousands of American jobs lost, in a bizarre segment that must be seen to be believed.
