Fat Theology
-------------
And God populated the earth with broccoli and
cauliflower and
spinach, green and yellow vegetable of all kinds,
so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's
brought forth the 99-cent double-cheeseburger.
And Satan said to Man, "You want fries with that?"

And Man said, "Super size them." And Man gained
pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt, that woman
might keep her figure that man found so fair.

And Satan brought forth chocolate. And woman
gained pounds.

And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."

And Satan brought forth ice cream. And woman
gained pounds.

And God said, "I have sent your heart healthy
vegetables and olive oil with which to cook them."

And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big
it needed its own platter.

And Man gained pounds and his bad cholesterol went
through the roof.

And God brought forth running shoes and Man
resolved to lose those extra pounds.

And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote
control so Man
would not have to toil to change channels between
ESPN and ESPN2.

And Man gained pounds.

And God said, "You're running up the score,
Devil."

And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable
naturally low in
fat and brimming with nutrition.

And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced
the starchy center into chips and deep-fat fried them.
And he created sour cream dip also.

And Man clutched his remote control and ate the
potato chips swaddled in cholesterol.

And Satan saw and said, "It is good."

And Man went into cardiac arrest.

And God sighed and created quadruple bypass
surgery.

And Satan created HMOs.

That would be the health maintenence organization, where u get your health decisions maintained, in a plan that makes it advantageous, for the doctor to see u as little as he can, and not referr u to a specialist bcuz that cuts into his maintenence fee for being on retainer to the health maintenence organziation/insurance, better than no plan at alll and in the past I know some good doctors that were in it, but all in all....well have a great day:D over and out jet doc

HMO=Helluva Medical Organization

These are the guys who won't pay for your colonoscopy because it wasn't medically necessary, and you must have just signed up for it for fun and against medical advice!!
