    I don’t know how to tell you this, but advertisements are not always totally straight with us.
    OK, I’m confident they are today but that surely wasn’t the case in the old days. I mean, really! A tapeworm to lose weight or a Santa smoking cigarettes?

    There was a time when women wanted to gain weight? Yes and if they drank this ionized yeast they would: “Men wouldn’t look at me when I was skinny but since I gained 10 pounds this new easy way I have all the dates I want.”
