how true

A doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa. “The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?”

After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, “Wedding Cake.

Shamelessly stolen from here.


Can I get an Amen...

Is it true that saltpeter is one of the ingredients of Wedding Cake?

Speaking of dangerous substances we ingest, I've heard that researchers have discovered that saliva causes cancer.

Yes, it does.

But only when swallowed in small amounts, over a very long period of time.

Gotta cut back on that breathing thing too. Over time, that'll kill you.

I don't know what ingredients go into a wedding cake, but it was the most expensive meal I ever had.
