    Works for the tobacco industry. Only difference is that the planet got hooked before the drug could be outlawed. Now it’s too late.

    The Marines stationed me in North Africa and I didn’t grow fat. Probably too lazy to go to chow.

    The sundae would be named the McMunchies.

    Shades of the Little Caesars Pizzas in FL in the 70s or 80s…

    Does it come with amphetamine sprinkles? Why Johnny can’t blink, indeed!

    Is it just me or is there a difference between pot and hashish as far as munchies go? When I was stationed in Turkey I didn’t get the munchies on hashish, but in college in the states I did get them on pot. I prefer hashish, a better high.

    This goes along with my concept of a series of hashish laced brownies, cookies, etc. I call them Bake You Back Goodies, because you bake them and they BAKE YOU BACK!

    A million dollar idea.

    But the foods already have appetite stimulators that are perfectly legal – they are called “fat” and “salt.”

    If you doubt this, try doing without foods loaded with these ingredients (Big Macs, fries, potato chips, most processed foods, etc.) and see how long you last. Unless there is a truly compelling reason for you to do so (e.g.: recovering from a heart attack) you won’t shun these foods for long.

    shores of tripoli, huh?

    The Marines stationed me in I Corps and I didn’t grow fat either. That came 41 years later.

    I always thought Capt’n Crunch was addictive and self perpetuating. Quaker Oats already has that business model.

    What’s in dem oats?

    @Alabama_Al - You forgot sugar. The addicting trio is sugar, salt, and fat. McD’s fries have all 3. Yes, you heard right. It’s been a little known fact for years now. They’re cooked with beef fat, too. Makes ‘em tastier I hear.

    Although, I haven’t eaten fast food in literally years. And when I cook for myself (all the time), I cook lean. Which is why I’m not fat. At all. And I don’t miss it. At all. Imagine that.

    In the second panel, it looks like Zonk has a knife at her back.

    Throw some onion rings in with that hash! hhm, I never got munchies with hash either, but a little toke of pot always made odd things edible. Consider myself “overweight” at present, though still about 30 pounds under the “median” for my height and age, is just a little spooky.

    Where? Mama’s South Forty, of course. Amount needed? The % real pot to real meat would be just about standard “fast-food” requirement.

    “Who would produce the secret ingredient?”


    I just hope the “Employee of the Month” does not end up becoming the “Inmate of the Millenium”…

    @Summerdog, it’s a tray in both hands (silhouette).

    All those stems and seeds go in the percolator with a few teabags, and soon you have tea that says you need more…

    The University of Illinois did a study in the late 1980’s that concluded that if every American was his/her medically healthy weight, America wouldn’t have to import a drop of oil.

    Since that time, Americans have gained an average of MORE THAN 30 pounds.
