Man vs Food
Do men have eating disorders? Do they sometimes go to extremes? The answer is yes and yes. That's right, men suffer from the compulsion to eat more than necessary too! I wanted to create another hub, but I wanted it to be short, sweet and to the point. So here it is, my idea of a quickdraw hub! Hope you like it.
I keep seeing the fastfood commercials on television while watching the horrible news on there about the terrible disaster in Haiti. God forgive me, but those food commercials were getting to me and I found myself urged to jump in my truck and head straight over to the local fastfood joint and load up, like there would be no tomorrow. Luckily, the urged subsided as quickly as it came on.Thank you Lord! Can anyone relate to this craziness? Utter insanity is the only way to describe it.
I have included a very nice poem below that is amazing. I like it and I hope you do also.It is kind of humorous in a special way.
Lord help us all to not be glutenous in our eating habits and let us have the patience to weather through those times of extreme craving of anything our bodies think that it has need of.
The Fat Man's Prayer
Lord, my soul is ripped with riot,
Incited by my wicked diet.
We are what we eat, said a wise old man,
And Lord, if that's true, I'm a garbage can!
I want to rise on Judgment Day, that's plain,
But at my present weight, I'll need a crane!
So grant me strength that I may not fall
Into the clutches of cholesterol.
May my flesh with carrot curls be sated
That my soul may be polyunsaturated.
And show me the light that I may bear witness
To the President's Council on Physical Fitness.
At oleomargarine I'll never mutter,
For the road to hell is spread with butter.
And cake is cursed, and cream is awful,
And Satan is hiding in every waffle.
Mephistopheles lurks in provolone,
The devil is in each slice of bologna,
Beelzebub is a chocolate drop,
And Lucifer is a lollipop!
Give me this day my daily slice -
But cut it thin and toast it twice.
I beg upon my dimpled knees,
Deliver me from Jujubees.
And my when days of trial are done
And my war with malted milks is won,
Let me stand with the saints in heaven
In a shining robe - Size 37!
I can do it, Lord, if you'll show to me
The virtues of lettuce and celery.
If you'll teach me the evils of mayonnaise,
The sinfulness of hollandaise
And pasta a la milanese
And potatoes a la lyonaise
And crisp fried chicken from the south!
Lord, if you love me, SHUT MY MOUTH!
Thanks to Victor for this awesome poem!
I'm hungry now, off to the kitchen I go!
