Forget about the right-wing pastors

I'm more scared by their "scientists."

Worst of all from this point of view are those more uncivilized forms of eating, like licking an ice cream cone -- a catlike activity that has been made acceptable in informal America but that still offends those who know eating in public is offensive.… Eating on the street -- even when undertaken, say, because one is between appointments and has no other time to eat -- displays [a] lack of self-control: It beckons enslavement to the belly.… Lacking utensils for cutting and lifting to mouth, he will often be seen using his teeth for tearing off chewable portions, just like any animal.… This doglike feeding, if one must engage in it, ought to be kept from public view, where, even if we feel no shame, others are compelled to witness our shameful behavior.

OK, They might be a little scary but I must admit they have a point with the food thing. Hamburgers were my favorite food until watching the Carls Jr commercials.


Give the man a Klondike bar.

A 555-page report written directly to President Bush? Yeah, I'm sure he'll get right on that.

Huh. Guess that means no Busters ribs for me from now on.

That man avoids women eating bananas (the evolutionist's nightmare) or sausages for fear of aneyurism.

I. Just. Betcha.

Yeah, classify eating as obscene... then we'll really have an obesity problem.

It was right there - a brilliant take that seems so obvious in retrospect. Nice, Sue. That's the money line.

Awww, thanks.

licking an ice cream cone -- a catlike activity

true. why, just the other day, i was walking by Ben & Jerry's and there was this Siamese, bold as can be, licking a scoop of Chunky Monkey right out of its waffle cone. and unchaperoned! without a face covering!

I hope he avoids Coney Island on the 4th of July: he's not going to like Nathan's Famous one bit.

If he doesn't like ice cream cones, I'm willing to bet that oral sex is on the Do Not Fly list. Jacuzzis are probably viewed as the Devil's Bathtub.

Talk about a lousy summer vacation.
