Snippet of overheard conversation in Asda [May. 23rd, 2005|01:17 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
"...in Sainsbury's, I got a cheesecake, I thought 'That must be alright.' but it was 9.8 fat!"

Those two well known slimming foods, cheese and cake there. How can they combine to produce something unhealthy?

Yes, how can anything containing cheese have any fat in it? That just doesn't make sense!

Was it Patsy Kensit? I notice that she features on the front of a magazine whose tagline is 'How I lost weight by eating fish and chips'.

It would appear to be Top Santé magazine, the direct rival to Lard-Arse Weekly.

Did they really say "9.8 fat"? What does that even mean? (Apologies if it's a typo; I'm not being picky at you.)

Probably mean 9.8g fat. Which for a cheesecake isn't *that* bad. My bag of Maltesers - you know, the ones that are so low fat ballet dancers eat them - contains 8.5g fat but your average Marathon has about 15g fat.
And considering the 100g bag of chocolate covered Brazil nuts I had on Saturday was 44.2g fat I'd consider that cheesecake to be diet food.
