A real story by a Man who was standing in a queue in

I have 2 dogs & I was buying a large bag of Winalot in
Tesco and was standing in the queue at the till.

A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Winalot
Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because
I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that
I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive
care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and
IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and the
way that it works is to load your trouser pockets with
Winalot nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you
feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete
so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the
queue was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a
guy who was behind her. Horrified, she asked if I'd
ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had
been poisoned. I told her no, it was because I'd been
sitting in the road licking my balls and a car hit me.

I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.

Stupid Mare..........why else would I buy dog food??
