Default How HMO's were created, In The Beginning

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the
Earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red
vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's and Krispy Creme
Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said "Yea,"
and woman said, "and another one with sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds.

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

And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane,
and combined them. And woman went from size 6 to size 20. And man increased his belt size from 34 inches to 48 inches.

And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing and garlic toast on the side.
And man and woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in

And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said,
"You want fries with that?" And man replied, "Yea! and super size 'em."

And Satan said "It is good." And man went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

And then Satan created HMOs.
