Fifteen Pounds, er, Tons

You’ll probably only appreciate this if you’re on the South Beach diet. Scratch that; you’ll only appreciate it if you’re me:
(Sung to the tune of “Fifteen Tons”):
15 almonds and what do you get?
Another pound lost and ketosis breath.
Jenny Craig, don’t call me,
Your plan is too slow
I’m eating ricotta — mixed with cocoa!

Laughing and nodding. Try the Scarfenberger cocoa mixed with Splenda and hot milk. It’s much better than those ricotta things. There are a lot of great recipe ideas on the website.

Happy losing!

This is so funny to me. The song is “16 tons” but my husband always sings it as “15 tons.” Here are the lyrics:
I was born one mornin’ when the sun didn’t shine
Picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I hauled Sixteen Tons of number 9 coal
And the store boss said, “”Well, bless my soul””
(Chorus:)
You haul Sixteen Tons, whadaya get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don’t you call me cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store
Repeat Chorus
Born one morning it was drizzl’n rain
Fightin’ and Trouble are my middle name
I was raised in a canebrake by an old mama lion
And no high-toned woman make me walk the line
Repeat Chorus
See me comin’ better step aside
A lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died
I got one fist of iron and the other of steel
And if the right one don’t get ya, the left one will
Repeat Chorus
Born one mornin’ when the sun didn’t shine
Picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I hauled Sixteen Tons of number 9 coal
And the store boss said, “”Well, bless my soul””

Funny!
