Friday Yuk

By Old Guy ·
Since I haven't seen a Friday Yuk yet I would like to get it started. Hope I'm not posting one at the same time but here goes.

Nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans

4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

CONCLUSION: Speaking English is what kills you. Eat and drink what you like.

Not humourous but your timing is good

by JamesRL In reply to Friday Yuk

There was a report (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,197539,00.html) that Canadians were healthier than Americans, despite our poor deprived socialistic communistic animalistic health care system (sarcasm alert). And yes I chose the first google hit foxnews and isn't that ironic....

Yes, it is funny

by Old Guy In reply to Not humourous but your ti ...

since it was primarily directed towards us, Americans, because there are so many Americans who really get on a health nut kick. It lets us be able to laugh at ourselves.

With all due respect, James, if you want another American vs the world commentary you need to start your own. If you don't like the joke I put up then you certainly don't have to read. This discussion was started for humor (humour) not arguments.

With All due respect

by JamesRL In reply to Yes, it is funny

I'm not trying to argue, I just found the syncronicity of your joke and the report I heard last night to be an amusing co-incidence. That Fox is the one commenting makes it even funnier, given the fact that they for one have been hitting Americans with the "evils of Canadian Healthcare" line for a long time.

Perhaps you didn't find it funny. I never claimed I was a comedian, and I warned you upfront. But I never meant it as an attack on Americans. Relax and take a deep breath.

My apologies, I

by Old Guy In reply to With All due respect

misinterpreted Not humorous. I thought you meant the one I posted. I do apologize and now understand what you were saying. You are correct that was coincidental. Thanks for explaining.

Edited for verb tense...

I could have been more clear in my title

by JamesRL In reply to My apologies, I

In retrospect.

You know I do watch O'Reilly sometimes on Fox to remind me how funny the Colbert report is....

It's a protest by a bunch of Miscellaneous regulars. We'll all revert to our normal fluffy kittens or whatever next week.
