    Or maybe it’s their pre-dinner snack at home, to tide them over while they have to wait for EVER for the wait-staff to bring them their orders at the restaurant. Didn’t Joy once complain that she and Burl had to eat at home before going over to Sue’s house because she never served enough, even though she KNEW they were ‘big eaters’? So I figure these folks would have to eat before they eat, if you catch my drift.

    Burl diets like I do. If it’s chocolate around here, it’s a goner.

    Perhaps Burl isn’t aware that you have to eat your diet meals INSTEAD of your ordinary food?

    But I do feel sorry for the guy – he devoured four boxes of extra thin mints, but has he got any slimmer? NO!

    Didn’t Joy complain to Slim-Fast once for not helping her loose weight?
    The same with Burl.. Yea he’s been watching his waist line,( if he can see it) get bigger. Maybe his pants shrunk in the wash? He should get the stretchy kind Joy and Verl wear.
    Then he can get into them. They could get the button with the elastic on it so he can get his pants buttoned. May need to add another inch to it though..

    Burl will never make losing weight requires effort, eating right and exercise.

    Crustwoodians eat unhealthy foods and too much of them to ever get in shape.


    No that I’m an omnivore again, I still eat only brown grains and such; I expected to need to stop having 2 slices of toast with most meals when I brought back animal fat, but I usually have them and still only 108 today.

    Burl’s pants aren’t the only problem. It helps if you can see the buttons and hooks. By the way, if I couldn’t button my pants, I sure would not be standing at the table trying in front of everyone. Maybe if he visited his throne he could reduce circumference long enough to button.

    It should be easy for Burl to watch his waistline. It sticks out far enough for him to see it easily!

    And the Doctor said, “We’re going to have to diet.”
    And I said, “Dye it? What color is it now? I haven’t
    seen it for years.”

    …….and a watched spare-tire remains, ever after to be watched some more…..in Burl’s case, anyway!!

    Geeze, Jer must have more body hair than Magilla Gorilla……!!!??!!……oh, right, yeah…….

    Jerry’s body hair is his persona (and his reluctance to commit – He is SUCH a prize) or Verla would say so anyway.

    I had to steal that one! One of my friends and I are forever telling goofy jokes to each other, and this one is a total keeper! Thanks for the laugh! LOVED it!
