Friday Follies: the Low Carb Edition

Today’s post is Friday-lite, ®  an excellent blog-reading strategy for mental and physical weight control.  Watch the pounds melt away as you consume this post, which is both low energy and low volume, and may even reduce risk factors associated with heart disease, cancer, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and Morgellon’s disease.

 For your Friday edification I present five quotes on five F-words: frivolity, feminism, freethought, food, fistulas. I’ll let you figure out which is which.

* Give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day.  Give him a religion and he’ll starve to death while praying for a fish  (anonymous) [2]

* A pair of jumper cables walks into a bar and orders a beer.  “Well, okay,” says the bartender, “but don’t start anything.”

* When men are oppressed it’s called a tragedy.  When women are oppressed it’s called tradition. (Letty Cotton Pogrebin)

* I think every woman should have a blowtorch. (Julia Child)

 Yes, that was only four quotes, not five. Who’s counting – you?  It’s Friday; lighten up. Besides, do you really want a quote about fistulas?

Sorry about that. It could have been worse. Much, much worse. Fistulas are more common in the anal region than the intestines. And there are pictures of them. Lots of pictures….

Oh, but after that, your eyes deserve a sloth-in-a-box break:

You’re welcome. Have a great weekend, and may the fistulas hijinks ensue.

Thanks for stopping by.  Au Vendredi!
