Come On, Paula

On the ‘Today Show’ this morning, Paula Deen, the dietary-demon who built her career by trying to kill us with such epicurean-evils as “Chocolate-Dipped Bacon-Wrapped Deep-Fried Butter Balls,” shocked the world with some news. Not the unsurprising part about having had Type-2 Diabetes “for years,” but the soul-shocking news that she’s signed a multi-million dollar contract to promote diabetes treatment drugs for Novo Nordisk. I expect she’ll be introducing a recipe for “Butterfat Krispy-Kreme Insulin Shakes” any day now. Just for the record, please note that I’m not making a joke about the horrible disease “Diabetes.” I just wish that this sort of irresponsible, life-threatening hypocrisy was prosecutable.
