Walking on Sunshine

It's Wacky Wednesday time again and if any of you folks are lookin' for the latest and greatest health fad, just follow the advice of 65 year old Navenna Shine who is conducting an experiment she is dubbing, "Living on Light". Little Miss Sun-Shine has decided to live without food for 6 months, sustaining herself only on water and sunlight. I hate to steal the lady's sunshine but, one major problem is that she lives in Seattle, a city that only averages 58 sunny days in an entire year. Guess ya gotta look on the bright side of thangs though, 'cause she already lost 20 el bees in 33 days. Heck, those folks on The Biggest Loser don't even make that kinda progress!
Anywho, Miss Sun-Shine says this is a "paradigm for living in which we as human beings do not need to ingest any kind of food whatsoever into our stomachs in order to thrive". She goes on to explain that we have a nutritional source of light embedded in our systems that gives us exactly what we need to be healthy and well. DANG, that theory just doesn't seem to hold water 'cause I've seen some dark and gloomy people in my day, and I know they ain't got much light embedded in their systems. Even folks with a sunny disposition can get can purty damn hangry if they go longer than 5 hours without solid food.
So, I say give it another week or two, put one of these bad boys in front of her face and Navenna is gonna chow down like she's in Nirvana. But, if sadly she doesn't survive this experiment, let's just hope her loved ones put the title of that famous Bill Withers song on her headstone, "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone"!

  1. I can only imagine what people who are poverty stricken and are really truly starving, think about Little Miss Sunshine.

  5. Well, we did see those Hindu people who really do live without any food and even sleep, so colour me not surprised :) Not that I would ever try it myself - I do need an occasional orange or banana to keep me perdy :)

  6. I agree with Stephen Sluder, that last line is brilliant.

    What the hell is that chick thinkin'? A person may not die if they are hydrated...although I can't even be sure of that but certainly there are some vitamin deficiency problems heading her way. Frankly, the thought of rickets, osteoporosis, and rotting teeth because of no calcium would have me chowing on my meat and veggies.

  7. Everybody's got a brilliant idea these days, don't they? Somehow I don't think this plan will last too long.

  8. Good grief! it sounds crazy but i'm almost desperate enough to try it to look good for my wedding. BUT the burger and fries sure look scrumptious. I may have that first and start the sunshine diet tomorrow.....

  9. She's a human being not a flower. This sounds strange to me.

  10. There's a nutritional source of light embedded in our systems?
    Gives new meaning to the term "blow sunshine up your ass," I suppose.

    1. Bloody brilliant mate! You had me laughing out loud at that and I almost spewed my tea on the monitor.

  11. I think it could be possible if one were a yogi, living high in the Himalayas and far away from all chemicals from civilization. They can do amazing things with their bodies, or so I read. Without that training, she'll be sneaking off to the nearest Golden Arch every night. Haha

  12. And I know I know I know I know....

    Thanks. Now I'm singing Bill Withers.

    And no sunshine around here when my ass is hungry. Only wrath and the throwing of lightning bolts.

    1. If you went for six minutes, you're eating the proper amount of bran.

  16. You get so many bonus points for a Bill Withers reference.

    You know, as a runner, I go running in the blinding summer sunlight often, and yet when I come home I actually feel hungrier than when I started. It's like the sun isn't even feeding me at all!!

  17. She is nuttier than squirrel poo.

    Food. Our bodies need food.

    And now I really want a burger and fries. lol

  18. Give it time. She will weaken and become pretty demented and delirious from starvation. Health services will step in and pump her up with saline solution and vitamins to get her system back on board. She will think things are great and continue on this way for who knows how long. You just can't make this sh!t up...

  19. I don't think she can get much crazier. No food? No thank you!
