it could be worse...


so i've been on a diet and have been mourning the foods that i think i should be eating--i actually had a moment the other day when my kids were eating the last of the easter peanut m&m's where i thought, "WHAT IF they stop making those? this could be my last chance to eat them....."

yikes.

but then i saw these 1974 weight watchers meal cards on tres sugar and decided that it could really be MUCH worse for me.....

yummy yummy!


even BETTER.

looks like the catering service for a porn movie set



as does this one...



should it bother us that it looks like brain?


nothing like the combo of 'jellied' and 'tomato'--GENIUS!



as well as the combo of 'fluffy', 'mackerel', and 'pudding'



someone murdered that pooor fish




dirty dishwashing water


this one might have been the least visually offensive to me, except for the fact that it leaves out hispanics, african americans, europeans, hare krishnas, etc. VERY un-p.c.

Those are crazy! I'm informing peta. Maybe they can figure out who killed that fish.

And Fluffy Mackerel PUDDING!!! Gag!

What the H were people thinking? What photographer looked at that food and said "um..yeah that looks good let's take some pictures!!" Gag is right. Blech.

Um, just looking at those pictures makes me want to diet. They spoiled my appetite! Is that how they work?

p.s. Eating peanut M&M's as we speak. Thanks a lot for making me think of them.

Starvation is a much better route than that crap! Yeah, it could be way worse.....

I'll stick to my current meal plan, thanks.

The cats in the Mexican Shrimp Salad are really creeping me out...

So glad I've never had to eat anything that looks like any of this before in my life.

wow, peanut m&ms are my most favorite thing ever and I gave them up this month. And you just reminded me that I haven't had any for 22 days. I'm sure that is a record.
And those photos look disgusting! Did they not understand the ease of a skinless grilled chicken breast back in the day? Or maybe the benefits of fresh vegetables and fruit?
