A doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa. "The material we put
into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here years ago.
Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is
loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes
the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But there is one
thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or will, eat it.
Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and
suffering for years after eating it?"
After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year old man in the front row raised
his hand and said, "Wedding cake."
