Off topic a little but funny...E-mail I received a few days ago.

The Purina Diet.

-——When someone asks you a dumb question wouldn’t you like to respond like

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow at Wal-Mart for Athena the wonder dog and was about to check out. A woman behind me
asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an elephant? So since
I’m retired, with little to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn’t
have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again.

Although I probably shouldn’t, because I’d ended up in the hospital last
time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care
ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that
it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply
eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is
nutritionally comple te so I was going to try it again. (I have to
mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled
with my story.)

Horrified , she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog
food poisoned me. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish
Setter’s ass and a car hit us both.

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

WAL-MART won’t let me shop there anymore.
