Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. Iโ€™m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything weโ€™ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Contest Results: Primal Post-Its

By Mark Sisson
25 Comments

 
The submissions to this year’s Primal Post-Its contest provides a glimpse of the world seen through a decidedly Primal lens. There are some scathing remarks, some biting commentary, but mostly witty and humorous plays on words, and that’s exactly what I was hoping for.

Many thanks to everyone that participated in this contest. While you’re all winners in my book, only one person can take home the prize package. Before we get to the winner a quick shout out to PaleoTreats and Primal Island, both of whom have sponsored this contest.

This was a tough one to decide, but at the end of the day the Worker Bees and I held a blind vote for the best submission and winner is…

Stephanie P. for “Honey Bunches of Bloats”. Well done, Stephanie.

Awesome!! Thank you for choosing my submission, Mark and Worker Bees! I had a lot of fun with this contest, and I see the others that participated did too! He have a very creative community. ๐Ÿ™‚

That should have read, “We” have a very creative community. I was too excited to proofread. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Loved every one of these. Laughed out loud @ Little Debbie Zebra Cakes. Too funny!!!

I guess whenever you eat Zebra Cakes you lose your ability to do basic arithmetic.

Two for $7 at the Dollar General is quite a bit more than two boxes at the suggested price of $1.99/box for Zebra Cakes.

Add that to the list of Primal benefits!

At the very top of this blog post there is a slideshow of all the entries. However, when I tried to look at this page on my mobile device, the slideshow was not available, so make sure your’e viewing on a desktop computer.

Someone enlighten me: what’s wrong with a chopped salad from Subway (besides the dressing)?

Stephanie Paris
2 years 11 months ago

Hi TetonCowgirl. Even their salads contain chemical additives, preservatives, artificial colors, MSG, nitrates (in the meat), refined sugars, and likely contain GMO’s. I read an article in which the author wrote she, “didnโ€™t find one single organic ingredient or menu item available at over 36,000 stores. Even the lemon juice comes in a pre-packaged squirt pack filled with preservatives.” I’m sure some salad ingredients are better than others. A simple salad of spinach and fresh veggies would probably be the safest route, sans soybean oil and corn syrup based dressing and overly treated meat. ๐Ÿ™‚

I operated on a no smoking sign in the abandoned work break room trailer I stayed in in the winter. When I was done with it it looked like this.

I love them all… we should do that more often.

That’s a great idea! There is already a “Comment of the Week” section in every Weekend Link Love post. Perhaps Mark and the worker bees wouldn’t mind expanding this to include a “Post-It of the Week” section…

I thought of some more of these.. if any are in the contest entries already that’s probably where I got the idea. I’m disinclined to check at the moment but here they are.
Frosted Flakes -> Frosted Mistakes
Captain Crunch -> Captain Crunched the scale
To be put on or near Drive Through signs -> Are you sure it’s worth the weight?
