Do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?

Ek het hierdie by die oulike Girl van die Suburbs gekry.  Sy het dit cute genoem, en dit is.  Dis inspirerend ook:

Recently, in large French city, a poster featuring a young, thin and tan woman appeared in the window of a gym. It said:

THIS SUMMER DO YOU WANT TO BE A MERMAID OR A WHALE?

A middle aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.

To Whom It May Concern:

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans). They have an active sex life, they get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the BarrenSea and the coral reefs of Polynesia. Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans. They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.

Mermaids don’t exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human? They don’t have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them not to mention how could they have sex? Therefore they don’t have kids either. Not to mention who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me; I want to be a whale.

P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver and a coffee with my friends. With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think,Good gosh, look how smart I am……..

  5. Baie goeie (en waar) storie. Daar is geen mens so mislik soos iemand wat te bang is om dit of dat te eet of net oor diëte en oefenprogramme kan praat nie.

    • Laat ek nou vanoggend my vinger in die pie druk.

      Ek strip my moer toetaalenal as mense die kilojoule inhoud bespreek van die kos wat ek eet. Ek gee nie… want as ek my daaraan gesteur het in die begin sou ek nie self die mayonnaise op die broodjie gesit het nie. 😆

      Ek eet elke week ‘n Big Mac, ek verlustig my aan jellybeans…. Ek drink koffie met volroom melk en 2 lepektjies suiker…. en ek het nou in 4 maande 10kg verloor….

      So die wat my nou wil ander wys maak…

  6. Ugh ja, ek gaan omtrent in ‘n koma van verveling in van daai soort praatjies.

    Maar dit hou die skuldgevoel tog so mooi in stand, julle… 😆

  8. Hierdie lekker skuldgevoel kwessie is vir my nogal interessant. Ek wonder of jy dalk die ding vir my kan verklaar?

    Now the fat people are trying to make exuses for being fat. It is not the fault of the skinny people. SORRY.

    Antwoord

  10. Well Lassie Bone I wonder whose fault it is that you can’t read properly. Cos it doesn’t say anything is the fault of skinny people.

    Lyk my onnoselheid en vet-fobie is nou verwant!
