i'd like a side of dexatrim, please

My husband shared this article with me this morning. I laughed. I choked. I snorted, I got a tummy ache. I cried.
I'm not sure why it struck me so funny apart from the pure lunacy of it. The fact that anyone would even suggest such a thing and actually be taken seriously. Then put it in the American Journal of Cardiology?! It is utterly ridiculous. Asinine. Ludicrous. *Add your own synonym here.*

My favorite part:"These companies already have an infrastructure for providing a variety of condiments... A generic statin could be added to the panoply of items in the self-service tray at little additional cost."

Soon, we will have no need for any personal responsibility. I think they should include diet pills, and Glucophage in the little packets. Cover all the possibilities, you know?

  1. Aside from the personal responsibility issue, which I agree with, I am also tired of Americans thinking that pills are the answer to everything. We are so pill happy!


I love to hear your thoughts!
