Super Sized Society

We all know we can "super size" our meals at McDonald's for a few cents and a 1,000 calories more, but how about those new fangled coffee drinks? My friend Jerry goes into our local coffee shop almost every day to purchase a small black coffee, but he gets a real kick out of the full figured women ordering up their Grande, extra chocolate, whole milk lattes, with a double dollop of whipped cream and sprinkles on top. Oh, and don't forget the bran muffins the size of your head with extra buttah. He looks at one of the muffins and wonders how in the hell a real person is going to get their lips around that thing, because surely only a horse could actually take a bite out of that muffin. But, the women sit down with their 600 plus calorie latte concoctions and their 500 plus calorie muffins and devour everything like a lion rips apart its prey.

When Jerry places his order of a simple black coffee, he tells the barrista, she should have a scale in front of the counter so that every customer who comes in must step on the scale before they place their order. If the scale reaches numbers it hasn't seen in awhile, it's just like the soup Nazi, "NO Grande Latte for you"!!!!!

And can you just imagine what's gonna happen after all of that caffeine, chocolate, sugar and bran????? WHEW, I say clear the coffee shop folks 'cause somethin' is gonna blow, and I don't want to be anywhere near that type of explosion!!!!!!

P.S. Thanks Jerry for the awesome material!!!!
