I'm just saying ...

Friday, September 30, 2011



This blog has nothing to do with my September challenge, either, which I will probably get around to blogging on sometime in October. I really have a problem with the on-time thing sometimes. This blog is simply because it is Friday, and I think everyone could use some grins to take them into the weekend.

I wrote none of this. That is right -- I plagiarized the entire blog. Which makes me wonder if it really is a blog since a blog by definition is either "(n.) Short for Web log, a blog is a Web page that serves as a publicly accessible personal journal for an individual. Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author." or "(v.) To author a Web log". But hey -- I have been writing all week and really am not in the mood for any more of this writing nonsense at the moment, so just cool your jets, relax, and laugh anyway and maybe think just a little bit. It will do you some good. I promise. And, no, there is no money-back guarantee if you do not laugh. You're getting this for free, anyway.

“I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.” ~Marsha Doble

“Fat people who want to reduce should take their exercise on an empty stomach and sit down to their food out of breath.... Thin people who want to get fat should do exactly the opposite and never take exercise on an empty stomach.” ~ Hippocrates

“For the first time ever, overweight people outnumber average people in America. Doesn't that make overweight the average then? Last month you were fat, now you're average - hey, let's get a pizza!” ~ Jay Leno

Dave Barry - America has become obsessed with consuming low-fat foods

Recently, a reader named Jim Cornell sent me a postcard with a picture of insects on it, posing an interesting question.

(No, the insects were not posing a question. As far as I know.)

Jim stated that he, like every other American above the age of 4, is on a low-fat diet, and he noted that we have become basically a non-fat nation. This is true; virtually all edible substances, and many automotive products, are now marketed as being "low-fat'' or "fat-free.'' Americans are obsessed with fat content.

DOCTOR: Mrs. Stoatbonker, you will die within hours unless you take this antibiotic.

PATIENT: Is it fat-free?

DOCTOR: I don't know.

PATIENT: I'll just have a Diet Pepsi.

    It's unfortunate that our society brings this out in people & that "fat free" is better for you. HHHMMMM here is a question for us though if it is fat free then what does all the preservitives do for us? (HFCS, Food starches, Sodium Hexametphosphite...)

    Awesome - I really enjoyed reading this. It is so true - people will eat anything that says "Low Fat" or Fat Free" even if it tastes like crap and leaves them wanting something else and most times ends up with them eating both the "fake" thing and the real thing. Have a great weekend!
