A quick and easy way to lose weight

Posted by Bob G. on 6/05/00 at 22:12 (021397)

Chris was terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet. 'I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this proceedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds.'

When Chris returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds.

'Why, that's amazing!' the doctor said, 'Did you follow my instructions?'

Chris nodded. 'I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that 3rd day.'

'From hunger, you mean?'

'No, from skipping.'

Bob, I want to tell you why I'm SO tired - For a couple of years I've been blaming it on my iron-poor blood, lack of vitamins, dieting, and a dozen other maladies. But now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked. The population of the USA is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leave 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government. This leaves 19 million to do the work. Four million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the work. Take from that total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City government and that leaves 200,000 to do the work. There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 12,000 to do the work. Now, there are 11,998 people in Prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And you're sitting there reading this.

Whoa, wait a minute, Chris, Bob, and you other fast talkers. Don't you know I'm a little slow-witted these days? You're leaving me behind in the dust and the dark.
