Dorothy: Dr. Oz said to eat ore whole wheat...
That was a brainless thing to do.
They’re just grasping at straws.
You should try some Tin Man, it’s heart healthy.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!……………………. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!
Not quite THAT whole!
I wonder if Dr Oz has read all the Frank Baum books, since it was a childhood thing, I would guess not. I only remember one children’s story with an Indian origen- about a tiger who ran so fast around a tree that he melted into ghee.

Tin Man realizes that they may well need some iron and zinc.
vadazzle, that story can’t be mentioned anymore, even the restaurant was closed. Just not at all PC.
The restaurant was called Sambo’s, after parts of the names of the owners. People associated the name with the BOOK, which was called “Little Black Sambo”, so the owners eventually took advantage and decorated it with similar images, and called the butter “tiger butter”.In the 70’s, the “Black” in the title was considered pejorative, so it was changed to “Little Sambo”, and then to various other titles, under which it still exists.In both book and restaurant the images were made light skinned.The accusations of bigotry still haunted the chain, and restaurants were closed or sold off till today there is only one Sambo’s left.Interestingly, Little Black Sambo in the original was not an African American but an Indian lad, as “black” was used in India to denote darker skin — still not exactly PC.
I had the book as a child. Mine was printed on cloth, call ed “rag book,” now long gone.
Yes, Susan- I also remember it was Indian, not African and I still use ghee in my Holiday Pate recipe. It is very high fat but I enjoyed it to eat with endive, baby romaine or even just celery sticks.
@ Eldo, I did not suggest that the Sambo story had any relation to Frank Baum- but as the TV Dr Oz is of Indian origen those childhood stories would be less known as opposed to a tiger melting to ghee. The Oz references are totally different one to the other.
