Too bad I'm white

I just learned this last week that I weigh more cause I am white.























Thankfully, even though I am white, there is hope for me. All I had to do was fill out a couple questions (three EASY steps!) and then I qualified for....tea?





I am not kidding.
"But I drink tea all the time," you might say.
This is different, this is no ordinary tea...LOOK HOW IT WORKS!

















The fat in my body doesn't stand a CHANCE!

Could our world come up with anymore ridiculous diets? Please. Women need more things to obsess about and then "fail" at.

You know, I thought my daily vanilla latte habit would do the same thing for me. Turns out it doesn't.

How interesting that I should read this the very day after I read this post which indicates that folks in China ARE getting fat....

Jus said...

Uhh ... being from Hong Kong, I can attest to the fact that there are definitely fat Chinese people.

Lots of them.

Maybe they should start a tea-only diet. That might work.

i love my proportions. anytime anyone questions any of them, i refer to my "investments", and then ask them if they wish their investments paid the same dividends that mine did.

if they're not laughing then, then i suggest that jealousy isn't a good color on them.

however, i'm a man, and societally, i'm allowing a more obese leash, per se....

if i was a woman, i would probably tell this ad, or anyone brave enough to say something to me to f#$* off. then i'd ask them if they like to join me at church on sunday.

I love Mark...even though I will kick his tail at tennis soon. This post was crazy. I love Olivia's scissors comment.

um, i'm a chinese woman who puts on weight, so i disprove that ad's claim. idiots.

my mom, as a nutrition prof, used to buy stuff from ads like this occasionally to see what they were really selling -- and once, she got bags of lipton. ha!

lizzo, that is HILARIOUS! lipton? wow! i love it.

Daphne said...

one time i plugged in a whole bunch of numbers to see if i qualified for the tea. i kept making my weight lower and lower to see if i still qualified, and believe it or not i did. apparantly, even if you are 80 pounds, you still need some tea to bind to your fat. buy some now!

prune juice would probably work just as well...but isn't quite as glamorous, I reckon. Ouch, tea with scissors in it!
