A prominent nutritionist was addressing a large audience at the Mayo Clinic....This will be my new joke to tell at the VFW on Friday night, when I go to the pool tournament!
"The material we put into our stomachs should have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is full of steroids and dye. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High transfat 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 most of us 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 70-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake."
By the way, my occupational therapist has made me a new device so that I can play pool with only one hand. I need lots of practice, though.
