    > > all kinds, so man and woman would live long and healthy lives.
    > >
    > >
    > > Then, using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's and
    > >
    > > Krispy Kreme and Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?"
    > >
    > > And man said, Yeah!" And woman said, "And another one,
    > >
    > > with sprinkles!" and they gained 10 pounds.
    > >
    > >
    > > And God created healthful yogurt that woman might keep the
    > >
    > > figure that man found so fair and Satan brought forth white flour
    > >
    > > from the wheat, and sugar from the cane, and combined them and
    > >
    > > woman went from size 2 to size 6.
    > >
    > >
    > > So God said, "Try my fresh green salad. "And Satan presented

    > > and woman unfastened their belts.
    > >
    > >
    > > God then said, "I have sent you heart-healthy vegetables and

    > > through the roof.
    > >
    > >
    > > God then introduced running shoes so that his children might

    > > and man began to look like a blimp!
    > >
    > >
    > > God then recommended lean beef so that man might consume

    > > fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created
    > >
    > > McDonalds and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then he added,
    > >
    > > "You want fries with that?" and man replied 'Yeah! And super
    > >
    > > size 'em." and Satan said, "It is good." and man went into cardiac
