Okay, I’ve got plenty of other stuff to post about, like the delicious goodness that was Will’s birthday cakes (yes, cakes plural, but at least he didn’t get THIS, you’ve got to draw the line somewhere), and that magazine is now out on newstands everywhere, and it’s not everyday your hands are shown LARGER than LIFE size on the pages of a magazine.
Today instead I share with you this tour of original 1970s Weight Watchers cards, brought to you by the hilarious Candyboots, who was smart enough to get a book deal out of these culinary horrors. You have NEVER laughed so hard, I assure you.
These are the saddest diet beverages ever.
The one on the right is skim milk and orange pulp. The one on the left is made with water, sherry extract, and two beef bouillon cubes.
Well, there’s also celery in it. Oh, and SELF-LOATHING.
Or this one:
I hope that you can see that this is a jellied salad. Do you see it glisten? Do you require a close-up to understand that these beans and mushrooms and pimiento strips are one solid, glistening mass?
See how the Ceramic Mushroom Family has gathered to show their children what happens to bad little mushrooms.
Be sure to click your way through the whole tour, you don’t want to miss Candyboot’s delicious commentary on the food AND the insane props (The time you spent eating these is time you’ll want back at the very end of your life. That’s why they’re served with a clock.) And you SURE won’t want to miss the Chilled Celery Log, the Snappy Mackerel Casserole and the (what?) Caucasian Shashlik.
