Things That Are Trifling

Thoughts on Food, Gender, Race, and Popular Culture

Fight diabetes with cookies!

From the annals of my undergraduate inbox.  My email commentary on said listserv blast.

——–

Of course. Because selling calories, starch, fat, and oil as a way to ‘reduce stress’ will give proceeds to the cancer and diabetes society. MAKES A LOT OF SENSE. Emotional eating. yeah, that’s always helpful.

This is like selling meat with proceeds going to the national colon cancer prevention society.
lmfao.
also, LOVE the fact that sororities (that’s what this is basically) contribute to these random-ass national charities once a year and that’s their “community service”.
They should be selling FRUIT SMOOTHIES
OR A PERSONAL TRAINER TO GET OUR FAT ASSES OUT OF THE LIBRARY AND FOR A RUN**
**Disclaimer: I have not been to the gym since Tues. but I’m going TONIGHT!
