” Darwin, you magnificent bastard”

Well... almost, she was 50 so whatever damage she was going to inflict on the gene pool had already been accomplished.

I don’t think she was really Swiss, she sounds more like a plant...

Sunshine by day and moonshine by night is a much more harmonious life sustaining balance IMO, eheheheh!

Try putting a plant in the sun without water and it will die also.

Can we now call her Mello Yello or Sunny?

How do we know she didn’t OD on Vitamin D???

Did she use the Sun to try and make her own ‘light’ beer?

That 1980s pop-synth band, A-ha, did create a very popular song called, “The Sun Always Shines On TV.” Maybe she should have been on TV.

Was she a blonde by any chance? If so, here’s a joke.

A Russian, an American, and a Blonde were talking one day. The Russian said, “We were the first in space!”
The American said, “We were the first on the moon!”
The Blonde said, “So what, we’re going to be the first on the sun!”
The Russian and the American looked at each other and shook their heads. “You can’t land on the sun, you idiot! You’ll burn up!” said the Russian.
To which the Blonde replied, “We’re not stupid, you know. we’re going at night!”

Oh, that's the problem. If she'd done it in a sunnier area she'd be doing fine.

I bet her favorite song was, “Blinded By The Light” by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. All we need now are a good set of parody lyrics just for her!

Will she be still voting for Obama this November?

Photosynthesis does work for humans, no matter how “green” you think you are.

Get ready for ‘plant rights.’

You just knew it was coming: At the request of the Swiss government, an ethics panel has weighed in on the “dignity” of plants and opined that the arbitrary killing of flora is morally wrong. This is no hoax. The concept of what could be called “plant rights” is being seriously debated.

If she was married to an Egyptian man the clock is ticking for his final coitus.

an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years

Yeah, the operative word here is "claims". Its surprising that someone as stupid as this woman could actually live to be in her fifties in the first place...

Regardless the discussion, an eating disorder is just that. Those who have them are very good at excuses and cover stories.

I knew someone who claimed to be a vegetarian, but managed to sneak in the occasional hamburger.
