Dog Diet

With Christmas well on its way, we all need a good diet to follow.  I was sent this via email and have no idea to whom credit should be given but, as per usual, I shall share it anyway.

For my international readers, two quick points of reference:

Checkers – a local supermarket chain

Epol – a popular brand of dog food (maybe it’s international – who knows – who cares?)

“Yesterday, I was at my local Checkers, buying a large bad of Epol dog food for my loyal pet.  Whilst in the checkout queue (line, for the Americans), a woman behind me asked if I had a dog?”

This is a DOG (just in case anyone was a bit confused already).

“What did she think I had – an elephant?”

This is an ELEPHANT.  It doesn't look much like a DOG

“So, since I’m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Epol Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because last time I ended up in hospital (after having lost 20 kilos) and woke up in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet.   The way that it works is to load your pockets with Epol nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (By now, practically everyone in the queue was enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her “No”, I stepped off the pavement to sniff a Bull Terriers arse and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

I’m now banned from Checkers.”

  22. Hilarious story! If I may share an encounter ( of the dumbest kind ) in a grocery store with you and your many readers. I struck up a conversation with the woman behind me while waiting to checkout and I inquired if she was making Oyster’s Rockefeller and she replied ” some of us prefer not to eat living creatures the example she gave me was turkey.” Needless to say I felt compelled to ask her if she thought that those oysters were found in the ocean already in a jar and as for the lobster she bought if it too was found frozen and packaged. I was inclined to buy her the DVD “Oceans” but I doubt it would have helped. Thank you for allowing me to share my story.

  32. That’s very funny! And it’s probably a lot safer than some diets!

  33. This could haveturned out two ways, as a funny funny situation, where the woman looks at your like you lost all your marbles, or you accidentally start the new Celebrity diet trend…. I’m glad it was the latter XD
