I came across this story looking for something completely different, but it was too good to pass up. Meme Roth the President of the National Action Against Obesity wants to sove the obesity problem by having the government OUTLAW all junk food!
She apparently believes that the only way people can avoid being fat is if they don’t have the chance to eat junk food. Which is stupid for two reasons: 1) you can eat more than your daily amounts in calories in Pasta, Cheese, Bread, Ham, or even Tofu (though the last would be a feat). 2) SKINNY PEOPLE LIKE COOKIES TOO! Don’t punish us along with the fat people!
She also believes that once your fat you will never lose the weight and if you some how do manage to lose the weight you will gain it back — yeah she’s an optimist. My personal experience totally disagrees with her however, to qoute Eric Cartman: "Follow your dreams, you can reach your goals, I’m living proof. (Beefcake! Beefcake!)"
Anyway this lady is completely off her rocker and the most anti-cookie person I believe I’ve ever met. Hey Meme, I currently have 3 large candy bowls in the house: the guest bowl, my personal candy bowl, and of course the poker room’s peanut M&M bowl. AND I’m wearing a belt so that my size 32 jeans dont’ sag down too far (I’m too old and too white for "sagging") so keep your governmental bans off my goodies! As a side note, can anyone explain to me how sagging is still around in its second decade? I was sure that fad would have faded long ago.
