Never Say Diet
The Major League Eating record for huevos rancheros is 7.75 pounds in 10 minutes, held by Richard "the locust" LeFevre. Warning: Most of these records are held by professional eaters with apt nicknames; the rest by people who really should find something better to do.
A medical school professor is giving a lecture, using slides to discuss different patient cases. He brings up an x-ray image and says, "As you can see, class, this patient limps because his right fibula and tibia are radically arched."
Turning, he points to a student in the front row, and asks: "You, what would you do in a case like this?"
The student stares at the x-ray, ponders for a moment and then replies, "I suppose I would limp, too."
"We never repent of having eaten too little."
--Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
