At the LA County fair last week, they were serving something called “fried coke.” Now my first thought was: gosh, what a waste of a perfectly good eight ball. But no, they actually pour Coca-Cola syrup into a deep fryer, then put it in a cup and top it with sugar and whipped cream and a cherry (because, y’know, fruit is good for ya.) Would it really be that much more unhealthy to get molested by one of the carnies?
In Hillary Clinton’s health care plan, the words “nutrition” and “exercise” appear once. The word “drugs” – fourteen times. Just as the pharmaceutical companies wanted. You know, their ad weasels love to say “when diet and exercise fail..” Well, diet and exercise don’t fail. A fact brought home last week by a new Duke University study that showed that exercise – yes, exercise – is just as effective a cure for depression as Paxil and Zoloft. So, ask your doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.
