Literature for the Illiterate: The OTHER Food Pyramid

I’ve taken the liberty of breaking down my idea of how restaurants are organized in the above graph. The following is an in-depth look at each tier. Enjoy!!! Street Vendors: Street vendors are the lowest level on the totem…pyramid. These would include hot dog vendors, pretzel pushers, and (at some amusement parks) gigantic turkey leg mongers. […]

Gym Freaks

I’m not writing this post as if I go to the gym all the time. No, I go like once in a blue moon. Like maybe once every president, do I go to the gym. Maybe like every time a new pope is elected do I go to the gym. But every time I go […]

My (Guilt) Trip to the Dentist

The Sharing Size: Bigger Servings for Bigger People

Okay, I’ll admit. I’m sitting next to the empty wrapper of a “Sharing Size” bag of M&M’s. But come on, when they first came out did anyone really think “Gee wiz, now I can finally share my delicious bag of candy with all my friends!” No. You didn’t. You thought “More fatty fuel for fatty.” I know […]

Chick-fil-A the Gay Away

; I need to cover this while it’s still news. First: I fully support gay marriage because everyone deserves the experience of watching their loved ones let themselves go and poop with the bathroom door open. Boom, done. Now, Chick-fil-A owner Dan Cathy has publicly expressed his disapproval of gay marriage. I AM FINE WITH […]

The State of the Sag- August 2012

Let me just preface this by saying, nobody cringe at the self-depreciating humor. It’s the only way I keep my ego in check. Now, I’ve been trying out a few new ways to lose weight and for the most part it’s been working. Unfortunately it looks like it’s too little too late. I recently went […]
