The Fuming Fuji Says No to 100-calorie Snack Packs

FUJ

The Fuming Fuji is outraged at the marketing of toxic food, especially when it is aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with 100-calorie snack packs.

But, Fuming Fuji, you say, these are sensibly-sized snack portions!

The Fuming Fuji says no!

The claim: Children need snacks, Fuji. And so do grown-ups. At least these little treats are only 100 calories, so it won’t do you any harm.

The catch: The Fuji is perplexed by this bold assertion that we “need snacks”.

The comeback: …were you going somewhere with that? Fuji? Okay, well, I’m just going to go do the dishes. I’ll check back in five minutes.

The conclusion: You’d like to think you got the better of the Fuming Fuji, wouldn’t you? Just hold your horses, snack-pack presumer! I was merely preparing my argument.

Chips and cookies are unhealthy; no one disputes this, correct? Let us hope. Then how do you justify snacking on garbage food because it is only a tiny amount of garbage food? I am a tiny amount of fury, and yet, the food industry quakes in fear of the Fuji. Well, maybe not, but my point is this: children are not trash compactors! They deserve a garbage-free nutritious existence, not an almost garbage-free existence! You do not need snacks – you need to love your body! How will the tiny tots learn properly if you show them that you do not think you deserve a garbage-free existence?

The catchphrase: Almost respecting the body is still disrespecting it.

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
