Humor also has its own way of being persuasive by rendering ridicule what a lot of people accept as the truth. Try to convince someone that consuming vegetable oil or grains is bad with logic and data is another ball game and not always apropriate.
So, for all Paleo enthusiasts out there, what are the best jokes you know that show without a doubt how absurd it is to be eating like we do in the Western world?
Here's one that was posted in a museum about aboriginal people in Canada:
How do you call a vegetarian indian? A lousy hunter.
A guy has celery sticking out of one ear, lettuce out of the other, and a zucchini up his nose.
He goes to the doctor and asks him what's wrong.
"Well, for one thing, you're not eating right"
If animals aren't supposed to be eaten, then why are they made out of meat?
"A new study shows that going on the Atkins Diet can
turn you into a crabby person with serious mood
swings .On the other hand, the study says that always happens
when you take doughnuts away from a fat person." -conan obrien
Don't you think it's unnerving that doctors call what they do "Practice"?
A blonde is terribly overweight, so her doctor puts her on a diet. "I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least five pounds."
When the blonde returns, she's lost nearly 20 pounds. "Why, that's amazing!" the doctor says. "Did you follow my instructions?"
The blonde nods. "I'll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day."
"From hunger, you mean?" asked the doctor.
"No, from skipping."
