Fast Food on a Diet

View that cholesterol wad Sizzling cheeseburger Hold the veggies, add ketchup Tape burger to thighs Hungry heart pulsates Thump, thump, thump Stop!
April 28, 2011 *Entry for Gwendolen’s Fast Food Epulaeryu contest PS -- Some are misunderstanding. The "Stop" is the sound of the heart stopping when cholesterol clogs the arteries.

    Carolyn--reading C.L.'s comments below. I concur with him! You were the only entry that expressed concern from the woman's angle- first on the lips, then on the hips theme. It's as tho you were in a dilemma in this piece which I enjoyed. Sizzling and u knew it was unhealthy YET u modified it to a more unhealthier meal...then the heart gives out! The fast food joints should just give us gals duct tape to affix it to our thighs! Sure would be faster! High five girl! Congrats! Gwendolen

    The cholestarol wads can lead to flatlines. I've seen a lot of entries about burgers for this contest. It makes me want to write about some decadent dessert like Dairy Queen smoothies! Good luck in the contest. Best to you, Diane

    Great write on the perils of cheeseburgers (guess what I've just stuffed myself silly on?) Wish I'd read this first...LOL

    oh goshhhh now I want a Burger!!! why did you have to say stop??? Haha :) I think I am gaining weight with all these yummy writes! & yup I'd gladly have Burger King over McDonald's lol-- you'd have to visit branches over here to get those free massages though ;) hugs :)

  1. Date: 4/29/2011 12:05:00 AM

    hahaha, it was so good until you said stop!

  1. Date: 4/28/2011 11:51:00 PM

    LWe both wrote about burgers. Actually I hardly ever stop at a fast food place. But when I was working there was a little restaurant across the street that made the most delicious hamburgers. And I had a bigger appetite in those days. Good luck to you. Love, Joyce
