I Feel Your Pain

“My pain may be the reason for somebody’s laugh.
But my laugh must never be the reason for somebody’s pain.”

What’s causing your PAIN today?

Some suggestions:

Taxes, taxes, and more taxes – especially if you live in NJ, NY, CA, or CT!

Toenail fungus removal

Pet DNA registration and enforcement

Boomerang Kids who want to breastfeed

Helicopter Pet Parents at the doggie park

Viagra ice cream – “You scream, I scream, we all scream…” […]

Weight Watchers Ice Cream

22 May

I’m in love. Or is it merely lust?

Oh, Yes!

Great photo on the box cover. Isn’t subliminal advertising subtle?

Nonetheless, Madison Avenue knows I  scream, you scream, we all holler like crazy for it!  Yes. Low calorie ice cream.

One of these highly satisfying, heavenly treats is only 80 calories, can you believe it?

Why have one dark chocolate raspberry ice cream bar when you can have two?

Two bars… 2 x 80 = 160 calories. Not too bad…

 

But, no!  The box says 1 bar = 80 calories and 2 bars = 170 calories.

Do the math, dudes at Weight Watchers. What’s with the extra 10 calories when I down two bars? Does that mean if I savor four bars (hmmm, not that I would) is it an extra 20 calories? Or is it like the Richter scale, increasing exponentially?

Is the extra 10 calories some kind of diet penalty?

I have contacted the generous and marketing savvy people at Weight Watchers regarding this error. I’m hoping they will reward me with Weight Watchers ice cream ’til death or ’til I gain 25 pounds – whichever comes first.
