"We've come a long way, baby"

I'm having a "Twilight Zone" moment here as I look at the ads for "Lorings Fat-Ten-U and Corpula Foods" in the center of the screen, and at the same time the blog has an ad banner on the edge of the screen for Pizza Hut's New PANORMUS Pan Pizza with Extra Cheeze and Pepperoni.

Corpula Foods. That could explain a lot. Hhmmm, maybe I could sue someone and claim that I never knew that Corpula Foods would get me fat.

Yeah..that's how I got my man too. Wearing a butt push up and pointy bra. *eye roll*

"Got" or "Trapped"???

I prefer the deep fried twinkie route. It works every time.

Oddly enuf, I think that one of those guys in the corner of that ad (the one Dave put up on the thread) is one of my uncles ...

And ... a different uncle werked for that "kelp" food supplement company ... IANMTU!

"Mmmmm donuts! Is there anything they can't do?"

That "skinny" guy on the beach looks like he's got tuberculosis...

I prefer mesmerized, Brian. My ex would disagree now. I guess that's why he is ;-)

. . . Did someone say "pizza"?

Yeah, I don't think I need any Corpula Foods to help me gain five to fifteen pounds.

Really. I just LOOK at pizza and gain 10 lbs. *sigh*

so i guess my current girth would be a real turn on for the ladies.

come and get it girls.

My mother had one of those butt padding things. It didn't do much good - she still had a skinny butt. She only weighed 90lbs soaking wet.

Have you ever tried a deep fried oreo? They are fantastic. There is a daffodil festival here that has them every year.

So back in the day was there a converse disease to bulimia. "Pssst, notice how she keeps getting up from her salad to go to the bathroom? She's stuffing herself with Snickers in there. Poor tubby thing, all she does is walk around complaining how skinny she is."

THIS entry got sent to loads of friends and family - and accidentally back to the Daveblog/Judi. Oops~

LOVED it!

I guess onion rings, fried chicken and beer hadn't been invented yet back then.

That's what god invented Haagen Daz for now.

There is a coffee shop here in Shelby, NC that would have cured their skinniness in a minute back then. They make all of their pastries from scratch and are wonderful. The coffee is much better than any you would get at a chain coffee place and it's only 1.49. My favorite is their homemade raspberry and white chocolate scones. Yum.

I guess Mexican food wasn't an option then either, huh ? Couple of fried tacos, frijoles with heavy cheese and chorizo and some rice will fix you up right nice. Not to mention the fat bombs I love with all my heart: Homemade Tamales. *sigh*
I could go on and on, but then I'd have to go home and cook all that stuff, just to satisfy my comfort food cravings. And don't forget the cerveza !

Now, we have ads to help you look more skeletal.

Personally, I sticking with the "My ancestors survived the famines" look.

It costs very little, with Drug reps feeding me unhealthy food.

Funny. I don't accept advertising on my site and I certainly wouldn't accepted advertising for Pizza Hut.

Thanks for the credit, Dave :)

Ah, the simple, slower life before fast food. I guess I should have gone to Mac's gym (followed by membership in ICU Gym) instead of Gold's.
