April fools!


A chicken and a pig are walking down the road.

The chicken looks at the pig and says, "Hey, let’s open a restaurant together."

After a moment, the pig says, "Good idea. What should we call it?"

The chicken thinks about it and says, "Why don't we call it 'Ham and Eggs'?"

"Mmmm, I don't think so," says the pig. "I'd be committed, but you'd only be involved."

(Can’t fool the pig)

This joke reminds me of some news that almost feels like an April Fool’s prank: that eggs, once good for you, are bad for you again.

Sigh. I don’t know how rigorous the study was, but I love eggs for a quick source of protein! Don’t you find the back and forth on diet exhausting and totally counterproductive?

I try to tune it out and instead live by Micheal Pollan’s adage, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
