Divine One-Upmanship

  1. The following showed up in my e-mail recently, courtesty of a friend in Seattle:

    .....And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and
    spinach, green and yellow vegetable of all kinds, so Man and
    Woman would live long and healthy lives.

    And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the
    99-cent double-cheeseburger. And Satan said to Man, "You want
    fries with that?"

    And Man said, "Super size them." And Man gained pounds.

    And God created the healthful yogurt, that woman might keep her
    figure that man found so fair.

    And Satan brought forth chocolate. And woman gained pounds.

    And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."

    And Satan brought forth ice cream. And woman gained pounds.

    And God said, "I have sent your heart healthy vegetables and
    olive oil with which to cook them."

    And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed
    its own platter.

    And Man gained pounds and his bad cholesterol went through the

    And God brought forth running shoes and Man resolved to lose
    those extra pounds.

    And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man
    would not have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2.

    And Man gained pounds.

    And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil."

    And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in
    fat and brimming with nutrition.

    And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy
    center into chips and deep-fat fried them. And he created sour
    cream dip also.

    And Man clutched his remote control and ate the potato chips
    swaddled in cholesterol.

    And Satan saw and said, "It is good."

    And Man went into cardiac arrest.

    And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

    And Satan created HMOs.
