Biz Buzz: Dianne Lively Yost
Porker with a forker. It must have shrunk in the wash! Ding dang! I can’t fit in my fancy dance outfit! Humm . . . Hold on y’all while I check my weight . . . Hells bells! I’ve like gained loads ‘O weight! Yikes! No wonder I have ham arms! This is war. Weight war. It’s back to my tried and true Weight Watchers basics: Writing down everything I dine upon! I’m talkin’ if I bite it, write it. Nibble it, scribble it and all that. Plus I’ve got to exercise every ding dang day! But, let’s keep this dietin’ program in perspective. I mean some folks can just get a bit too carried away. Like this lawsuit-lovin’ person who is suing Applebee’s over its Weight Watchers menu ‘cause the person’s precious tilapia had like 126 calories more than the menu stated. In Weight Watchers talk that’s like 1 point. Give me a ding dang break! Talk ‘bout makin’ a mountain out of a molehill! Instead of suin’, this person ought to spend time workin’ off that pent-up frustration at the gym and maybe a little weight at the same time. With all the ding dang problems in the world, spendin’ precious resources of time and money over something this dumb-as-a-doornail dim-witted just flat drives me batty. I hope the judicious judge throws this 50-point cow patty of a lawsuit right smack outta court. Honey, that’d make me as happy as a porker pig rollin’ in mud on Monday!
Ok y’all. Let’s get on with the buzz on biz!
