My friend John Dobbs told this true story about an incident that happended to him at Wal-Mart:
I have 2 large dogs, and was buying a large bag of Purina at Wal-Mart and was in line to check out. The woman behind me asked if I had a dog? Duh.
On impulse, I told her no, I was starting The Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t because I’d ended up in the hospital the last time. But I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes everywhere and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and the way it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.
I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy who was standing behind her.
Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me?
I told her no, I’d been sitting in the street waiting for a car to chase, when another car hit me.
I thought the guy standing behind her was going to need help as he staggered to the door laughing.
