From Big Macs to fried Twinkies to the Ultimate Grilled Cheese Burger Melt, it’s getting harder and harder to deny the food industry’s ongoing attempt to clog every artery in the world before 2050. And just when I’d thought I’d seen it all, DiGiorno introduced the pizza & cookie combo. As if eating a frozen pizza for dinner wasn’t enough to make you want to run 30 miles, you can now top it off with a roll of cookie dough.
I understand the arguments on both sides of the debate about the garbage that our food industry is supplying. Yes, it’s horrific and disturbing that our grocery store shelves are packed with food so caloric it makes medieval kings’ feasts look like bar snacks; but, on the other hand, how beautiful is it that we live in a nation where we have the right to choose what we put in our bodies. If we want to eat ourselves to the BMI of a baby whale, it’s our god-given right to do so! And that’s just what we’ve done. We have chosen to buy the pizza/cookie combos, and so that’s what we’re being served, because clearly we all know what’s best for us.
So the next time you’re set for a night of binging and self-loathing, be sure to pick up the blood-clotting combo. God Bless America!
