WJW -- In the Beginning...

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the
Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli and cauliflower and
spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man
and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's and
Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with
that?" And Man said "Yeh," and Woman said, "and another one with
sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And the stockholders were
very happy. And Satan smiled.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the
figure that Man found so fair. Satan brought forth white flour
from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And
Woman went from size 6 to size 14.

So God said, "Try my fresh green salad."

And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and
garlic toast on the side.

And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy
vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them."

And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and
chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. Hilltop
Steak House thrived! And man gained more weight and his
cholesterol went through the roof.

God created a light, fluffy white cake, named it
"Angel Food Cake," and said "it is good."

Satan then created chocolate cake and named it
"Devil's Food."

God then brought running shoes so that his children
might lose those extra pounds.

And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not
have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and
cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in
fat and brimming with nutrition.

And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy
center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man gained pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume
fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger.
Then said "You want fries with that?" And Man replied,
"Yeh! And super size"em."

And Satan said "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest.
God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

Then Satan created HMOs
