The Michael Jackson Diet: You’ll not only lose weight, you’ll lose pigment

by editor on June 7, 2011

Let’s just call this weight loss ad what it is – the worst ad of the year. Apparently the makers of this product expect you to believe that it will turn you from a fat black woman to a slightly less fat white woman.

I just noticed that she is holding on to a dark skinned hand. Assuming that is a man… basically this ad is saying… “if you are black and fat take our product and we can turn you into a slightly less fat white woman who can score with the black man that you can’t get with but want to.” :-/ Interesting…

Not only did it make her white it also gave her a hand to hold. So she found love also. Like it made all her dreams come true!

Forget the black/white thing. Just look at the second picture which is supposed to represent “Fab”. Do you get the feeling the true message is to lower your standards of what “fab” looks like? This couldn’t possibly be the MJ diet as that second picture certainly isn’t a “Thriller”. Excuse me, I have to go wash my eyes out now.

Stay tuned for the new, improved formula that turns you into a ‘typical white’ person, as Barry would say.

You are what you eat. Stay off the dark chocolate and eat white chocolate and sheezam!!

Well white chocolate is just fat… dark chocolate is better for a person but of course not in excess. It is great for depression and it has antioxidants. I like dark chocolate and I extol its qualities lol.

…but only if the dark chocolate is strong enough that you can feel the buzz.

I have never had a buzz, but I have had a sense of satisfaction that is undescribable.

I tend to pooh-pooh the latest “such-and-such is actually GOOD for you” news. 99% of the time it’s just saying there’s a beneficial element in it and totally (willfully) ignoring the other elements in it that counteract the good element.

This is constantly the case with milk. (The calcium in it is worthless because you’re not absorbing it, due to all the necessary enzimes that are destroyed in pasturization.) Ditto with wine and coffee and sugar and every other “guess what’s suddenly good for you” garbage.

Whatever element is beneficial in any vice is easily found in something that is not a vice.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL . Perhaps the editor of this ad was “colorblind”. This is hilarious.

Damn! Is the before picture Moochelle Obama and the after pic Kirstie Alley? It’s hard to tell but those are a couple of big old butts! I’m talking about Moochelle and Kirstie, not the ladies shown here.

Well, I guess that answers Navin Johnson’s question “You mean I’m going to stay this color?”

It’s a miracle of modern science. Maybe science can produce another miracle that turns Democrat politicians into honest citizens.

Pretty sure this is government run organization. Soon there will be a 3000 page bill making us enter this weight loss program at $500/week.
