Is it April First?

This is a joke, right? RIGHT???!!!

"It has long been shunned as a junk food, but now, a new study has claimed
that the humble chip can actually battle cancer.
Chips are rich in vitamin C, which boffins consider could fight the deadly disease.
It is thought the vitamin tackles dangerous free radicals, which are associated
with cancer growth, reports the Daily Star. By eating a portion of chips
- which contains five times more vitamin C than a bunch of grapes - people
may keep cancer at bay. And those already suffering with the disease
could even shrink the size of their tumours with a vitamin C rich,
deep-fried potato diet, the researchers said."



I've died and gone to heaven. (Laughs gleefully while tearing open a bag of Lay's Magic Masala.)




A couple of bags later....alright, it was three! Sheesh! Anyway, much later...


Ok, sobering up, could anybody tell me why wasn't the Vitamin C level compared to oranges or other fruits/veggies with notoriously high levels of Vitamin C, why grapes? Seems like a bullshit study to me, sponsored by chip companies.

I love chips, wouldn't give em up for the world, but even I draw the line at believing they are good for me. Its fried, and flavored with artificial ingredients, does that sound like a cancer-fighting diet to you? Indulge in moderation, get your fix of veggies and fruits, there are few things more delicious than juicy fruits and crisp veggies, eat without guilt, eat with an appetite, run, play, laugh...you will be just fine.

That's all the incentive I need to polish off this here fine bag of kettle cooked chips. Now I am no longer the pig who ate the whole bag... I'm someone who is fighting cancer even if it is while watching Seinfeld reruns and with crumbs all over me.
