The Turf ‘n’ Turf

I was watching Parks and Recreation the other day and came across this gem. It’s quite appropriate in the week of the US election. And it works for S2B considering a ‘clean’ diet (i.e. meals made from scratch) is a huge part of the programme. The plotline for this episode was about how a fictional candy maker wanted to sell their products at park concessions.

Initially it was seen as a great budget boost for Pawnee, Indiana’s parks. But then the story pivoted to how letting Sweetums into the park system would be an official endorsement of junk food.

Anyway, enough preamble. The scene in the clip below involves the Parks and Rec boss eating out as a guest of Sweetums (think Thank You for Smoking…. which is a must-see film, btw).

Given I’m eating a pound of protein in each of two meals per day, I laughed my ass off when I saw it. (For some reason the embedded coding wouldn’t “take” so it’s an old-fashioned link.) In fact, it reminds me of a documentary I saw on Steve Martin when I lived in the States. Apparently he turned to comedy after studying philosophy… the reason being that it partly dealt with the nature of the absurd, which of course is what a lot of comedy is based on and which this clip clearly illustrates.

In weekly weigh-in news, I stepped on the scales yesterday and have put on 0.7lb since last week. That brings me to 12.3lbs gain overall and 147.3lbs. Remember folks, for hardgainers it”s a marathon, NOT a sprint.
