It's THAT Day Again

I'm sure it will be all over the news, but it's that time of year so to be expected, I suppose.

We'll do our best to withstand it, won't we Gentlemen?

(What's that? There was something else momentus being planned today? Can't imagine what it could have been)

And Ladies, please Dick!

Yes, on this day each year I do my utmost to smoke at least twice what I normally would, and as publicly as possible!

Well, we can't have the morons thinking we are in any way compliant with their silly little stunts, now can we?

I see that meat now causes cancer and heart disease and today I see that saturated fats now damage sperm. All the same warning labels apply.

Next year there'll be 'national cabbage day' or some such thing.

Lyn Ladds said...

Don't know about that Legiron, do they do positives?  I thought they only did negatives, like NO Smoking Day and the bullsh*t about how successful the smoking ban is!

Or have I missed the point?  Is there something sinister about cabbage?

Let's face it, over the decades there have been cancer or some other scares about almost everything!

I remember as a teenager - and that was a long time ago, am mid 50's now - thinking and saying, if we give up everything they say is bad for us then we may as well dig our own 6 foot hole now and get into it!

At the end of the day everything in excess is bad for you, even water and sleep - apparently!  It is just that some things will kill some quicker than others, depending (as I have said before) on the individuals genetic make up, predominantly.

Perhaps that is the problem with these morons, their genetic make up is so screwed up they need it sorting out so that they can actually get a life and leave everyone elses alone!

Meat, beer, cheese, etc? Let them keep bringing them on - all the more confounders for the epidemiology crowd to have to take account of!

Yesterday's 'Daily Telegraph', front page lead: 'Red Meat is blamed for one in 10 early deaths'. In the text: 'greater consumption of unprocessed and processed read meats is ASSOCIATED (my emphasis) with higher mortality risk.' Also in the text: 'people who ate a diet high in red meat were also likely to be unhealthier because they were more likely to smoke, be overweight and not exercise'. In other words: Don't let the facts interfere with a non-story.

No-one clicked the link then, that's probably for the best. ;)

We don't have any silliness like no smoking day here. In fact, we don't have any silliness like no smoking, despite the EU imposed bans.

I clicked it! :-D

I have my steak but I can't find anyone to help me with the other :-(

I was asked, by a female colleague, if I was celebrating the other thing. I told her 'I'll celebrate yours if you celebrate mine'. For some reason she became red in the face and reported me to the boss (who agrees we should have it at least bi-anually, by the way).
