Food for thought?!

Christmas Eve was spent relaxing, watching tv:

Pleasantville: getting sucked into your favourite tv program and stuck in tv-land isn't really a novel idea - but if you're stuck in a black/white/grey tv-land, and your helping people discover themselves makes their world turn into color? Now THAT's different.

Forrest Gump: I can't help it, every time this is on I start talking like Forrest too! I totally just *have* to talk in that southern alabama drawwwwwwl... drove Kosh crazy, LOL!

X-mas? Also totally uneventful :D I think I spent most of my time reading (am currently re-reading The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley: will "review" it in another post)

But today, we went up to Chicagoland for the gift-giving season with Kosh's family. Lots of fun!
Now everyone is asleep recovering from the food and drinks - I'm being a night owl :D it's always fun to take advantage of hi-speed wireless internet access here :-)

Before I go exploring others' blogs, here's some, err, food for thought:
Dangerous food
A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa, Florida. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining."

"Chinese food is loaded with MSG," he continued. "High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?"

After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake."
Yep, that was another e-mailed joke I felt was worth sharing, teehee!

But... I wonder,,, what is the "correct" answer to the Doctor's question?

  1. Forrest Gump is one of my guilty pleasures. I can't turn the channel when it's on. Totally addicting.

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
