COOKING CAN BE SUCH A TRIAL!

In a recent argument during the never-ending Simpson trial, DNA defense guy Robert Blasier reasoned . . . "that's like saying Julia Child doesn't know anything about cooking because she doesn't use a Cuisinart!"

You betcha, Bob.

LOW FAT CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH

This is scary.

After lots of money and time, medical researchers have determined that a low-fat diet can be dangerous for your mental health.

A study of 331 hospital patients who survived suicide attempts found that they had "significantly lower levels of cholesterol in their blood than a group who were not suicidal."

Further, they reported growing evidence that low cholesterol is linked to INCREASED AGGRESSION.

So, fellow-chubettes . . . if you're feeling content, happy as a clam, secure and serene, don't go changin' . . .

Bask in your bon bon binges . . . devour the Ding Dongs . . . you're doing just fine.
