dhorsh over at Raverly posted this story and when I got up off the floor I had to pass it along.
"Yesterday I was buying 2 large bags of Purina dog chow at Wal-Mart for my dogs, Cricket and Sugarfoot. I was about to check out when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Did she think that I had an elephant?
Since I had little else to do, on impulse, I said, “No, I don’t have a dog, but I am starting the Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t because I ended up in the hospital last time. On the bright side though, I’d lost 50 pounds before I woke up in the Commerce hospital with tubes coming out of every orifice in my body and intravenous tubes in both arms."
I went on with my story saying, “Purina Dog Chow is essentially a perfect diet. The way it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. It’s nutritionally complete so I am going to try it again.”
I must mention here that practically everyone in the line was enthralled with my story by now."
Horrified, the woman asked if I ended up in the hospital because the dog food had poisoned me. I said, “No, I stopped in the middle of the parking lot to lick my butt, and a car hit me.”
I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!"
The WAL-MART store here in Commerce won’t let me shop there anymore."
