Naturally Ridiculous

I was browsing a popular personals website tonight. I don't know why, because I will never get up the stones to send anyone a message. I suppose it's just entertaining sometimes. Like tonight, when I saw something that never fails to aggravate me.

A woman professed in her profile to have a "nature-based" diet. She also claimed to be into yoga, karate, the gym, and a bunch of crap that has to do with chakras or some shit. But that "nature-based" diet thing really bugged me. What exactly IS that, really? Answer me this, Crunchy McGee - what can you eat that's NOT nature-based? Are the rest of us eating nothing but polyester and styrofoam?

That reminds me, I also hate when people make the case that something is good for you by saying it's natural. "Oh, you MUST try this cereal - it's all-natural!" Whenever someone tells me that, my answer is always the same.

"So is hemlock."

As opposed to vegetarians who eat an unnatural diet.

And hemlock is a perfectly acceptable way to kill someone...unlike guns which are man made and therefore evil.

Rice cakes do bear a striking resemblance to styrofoam.

My diet is natural too ... if its in front of me, naturally, I'm going to eat it. Especially if its chocolate. ;)

And so are Charlie Horses, but I'm still not a big fan.
