New Diet

The next time someone asks you a dumb question wouldn't you like to
>>>>> respond

>>>>> like this?.....


>>>>> Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Athena

>>>>> the wonder dog at Wal-Mart and was about to check out. A woman

>>>>> behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an

>>>>> elephant? So since I'm retired, with little to do, on impulse, I

>>>>> told her that no, I didn't have a dog, and that I was starting the

>>>>> Purina Diet again.


>>>>> Although I probably shouldn't, because I'd ended up in the hospital

>>>>> the last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an

>>>>> intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices

>>>>> and IVs in both arms.


>>>>> I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way

>>>>> that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and

>>>>> simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food

>>>>> is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. (I have

>>>>> to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now

>>>>> enthralled with my story.)


>>>>> Horrified , she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the

>>>>> dog food poisoned me. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff

>>>>> an Irish Setter's butt and a car hit us both.


>>>>> I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he

>>>>> was laughing so hard!


>>>>> And Now WAL*MART won't let me shop there anymore.
