“Hey Janet” Marilyn said to an old friend that she hadn’t seen in years when she saw her at the fitness center.
“Marilyn, is that really you?” Janet asked. “You look great. Have you been on a starvation diet? You’re skinny as a rail.”
Hearing that from her friend, Marilyn was ecstatic. “Oh thank you, Janet. Yes, I’ve been on this fantastic new diet. And coupled with a rigorous excercise regiment, I’ve lost almost 80 pounds.”
“That’s amazing,” Janet said. “I’ve tried all kinds of diets and none of them have worked for me.”
“Would you want to try the one I’ve been on?” Marilyn asked.
“I get it, Janet,” Marilyn said. “These days, there are so many scam diets around, but I can assure you that this one I’m on is rock solid. Just look at me. I look great, don’t I?”
“Well, to be honest, Marilyn,” Janet said, “You look emaciated. You’re too damn skinny.”
“Oh, Janet,” Marilyn said. “Don’t you know that there are two things you can never be: too rich and too thin.”
