Who would have thought it eh? A complete and utter solution to weight loss has been discovered! Perusing a copy of the Sunday World magazine a couple of weeks ago I noticed a very interesting full page advertisement.
A reknowned Swedish scientist Dr Snuffleupaguss (or something) has invented a pill based on marine biology, given it a scientific sounding name (putting an x or a v in the name always makes it more credible I think don't you?) and rustled up some enthusiastic testimonials. Which sounded very exciting indeed. Jessica Jones tells us that she:
- Lost three stone in four weeks
- Didn't eat less or change type of food eaten
- Felt no hunger
- Suffered no side effects
- Looks years younger
Oh it sounded great. But why oh why was this miracle hidden away in the back of a newspaper. Surely this should be making front page headlines all over the world? To my horror the said Sunday supplement went out in the recycling bin that night - was the discovery lost to me forever? Oh no!
Oh well. Another day, another diet pill...
