Food For (stifling) Thought

Obesity is not because it runs in the family, its because, no one runs in the family


Tanka: uneducated mass

“I am offended!
I have the runs all the time.”
“That’s not what it means,
that’s a problem of diet,
please, see a nutritionist.”

The process in which we prepare
A direct answer to the level of care
When awareness is a daily pursuit
We will garner results few can refute

Hay(na)ku: solution hungry

can exchange
food for thought

Children’s Joke:

What starts with F and ends with UCK?




Food trUCK

Senryü:escaping obesity

I can not escape
Food trucks are following me
everywhere I go

Fast food is worth the wait
But is it worth the weight?

Who watched Super Size Me?
How about Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!click here

Each moment of life a fight
diabetes stalks me by day
Sleep Apnea strangles at night
Heading for the goal
My blood pressure
races my cholesterol
And what's the point
Of all this talking
It's too late for me
I'm a dead man walking

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese.

  1. I also enjoyed the joke — and the play on “wait” and “weight” about fast food. Now that I’m middle-aged, I’m more careful about what I eat … but, man, fast food is really convenient during road trips.

    1. Thanks.
      I probably should get around to monitoring my intake. My speedy metabolism should have crashed by now.
      Luckily the kids are too young to be indulging in fast food so we usually pack snacks. But in a few years…

  2. I had no idea that it’s World Obesity Day. When my sons started earning their own money, I lost control of their diet. Putting on the pounds was easy. Losing the pounds is a never-ending story.
