wretchipe of the week

i got an email from the South Beach Diet website with the subject line: Festive Yogurt.

festive yogurt, huh? curiosity peaked. i mean what exactly does Dr. Agatston find festive in his yogurt? a shot of vodka? a handful of very crunchy (whoa, bessie) granola? a symphony of fresh berries?

nope. what makes Dr. Agatston's yogurt festive? artificial flavoring.

hm.

why make diet junk food when i can buy it pre-packaged and help poison the environment while i poison my body? two birds, one stone.

Yes, and nothing makes yogurt more festive than a decorative bowl.
