“"HuffPost Food would love to have conducted a taste test of the three sandwiches, so we would be able to tell you which to order next time your jeans are loose. But our cardiologists advised us against it, and there is no Denny's in Manhattan, so you'll have to undertake that journey on your own."
And they wonder why people call them elitist.
I would try any one of these concoctions - come on people, it's not like most people are going to live on them, and a little excess every now and then is good, it jump starts the glands.
And a quick note to the web editors - when you run this article right under the ketchup taste-test, your foodie condescension seems a tad out of place.”

“What on earth is elitist about about calling a disgusting pile of slop a disgusting pile of slop? Get real. No wonder this country not only has an obesity epidemic, but is the laughingstock of the world.”

“I believe it was humor, not the boogeyman-of-the-day elitism.”
“I suffered for years with a biscuit disability until I discovered *the* biscuit secret: White Lily Self-Rising Flour. Trust Me. It's a very soft flour, and it makes awesome biscuits. (And I'm a born-and-bred southerner, biscuits are serious business to us ;-)”
“The studies quoted here show that *married* churchgoers are less likely the be problem drinkers than *single* non-churchgoers. After that it's the author's preference to assume that religion is the difference and not marital status.”

“The churches I am familiar with around my neck of the woods are filled with heavy drinkers. They all justify by saying that they are financially successful and good parents etc... Then they wonder what happened when their kids become teens and get involved in all kinds of drinking and drug issues. Duh, look in the mirror! I have had numerous Catholic friends who tell me that (tongue in cheek of course) that you have to be a "good drinker" to be catholic. Nice! I don't drink because I was a complulsive drinker and it made me feel bad. I don't do religion because it made no sense to me and it made me feel bad. Now I feel great both physically and spiritually!”

“The question both begged and proportedly answered is that marriage and church attendence is the solution to problem drinking, which is ludicrous.”
“I am a parent. I took my career from the fast track to the side track because the demands of the fast track weren't compatible with my values as a parent. That was *my* decision. When I'm not at work, my employer doesn't care if it's because my child is sick or because I just decided not to come to work today. If you want to be on the fast track, that's *your* decision, get a nanny, find a good daycare, don't attend your child's activities. Equal pay for equal work is one thing - protecting every decision you want to make is another, and demanding it is going to turn a lot of sympathetic ears into deaf ones.
And OBTW - after the delivery, these become "parenting" issues, and they affect parents equally. Perhaps instead of looking for "men to blame" *especially* the ones in your own house, you'd get more traction if you recognized that fathers are parents too, and particularly when it comes to balancing work and family, we're in the same boat.”
