American Fairy Tales July 13, 2008

Tweety from one of my longtime fora, GeekCulture, has started a new blog, American Fairy Tales. He only has one post so far, but more are promised. The concept is original: America lacks fairy tales like the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. The story posted, about an ogre named Ormley, is cleverly written and contains just the right amount of descriptive phrases and humor. Unfortunately, the message of the story demonstrates the author’s wholehearted subscription to the popular media’s propaganda that fat and overweight are caused by eating fried, high-fat-content foods and that those foods, as well as being overweight or obese, leads to heart attacks and death.

Or maybe that’s the fairy tale.

A friend of mine sent this to me. I think you’ll enjoy it, tongue-in-cheek as it is. 🙂

THE COPING DIET

Only girlfriends can understand this one. This is a specially formulated diet designed to help women cope with the stress that builds during the day.

Breakfast
1 grapefruit
1 slice whole wheat toast
1 cup skim milk

Lunch
1 small portion lean, steamed chicken
1 cup spinach
1 cup herbal tea
1 Hershey’s kiss

Afternoon Snack
The rest of the Hershey kisses in the bag
1 tub of Hagen-Daaz ice cream with chocolate chips

Dinner
4 glasses of wine (red or white)
2 loaves garlic bread
1 family size supreme pizza
3 Snickers Bars

Late Night Snack
1 whole Sarah Lee cheesecake (eaten directly from the freezer)

Remember: Stressed spelled backward is desserts.

Send this to four women and you will lose two pounds.

Send this to all the women you know (or ever knew) and you will lose 10 pounds.

If you delete this message, you will gain 10 pounds immediately. That is why I had to pass it on; I didn’t want to risk it.

I’m proud of the Daily Record. A few weeks ago it published this warning about the side effects of crash dieting. I gotta hand it to them; they didn’t pull any punches. It’s good to see this kind of thing in the public media.
