Diets are Hell

David Weinberger remarks in re: a chart of low glycemic load foods,

The chart is, of course, the inverse of my eating preferences because the universe is not just cruel, it’s petty.

How true when you’re on a diet.

Get back, peanut butter cups! Back! BACK!

PS: Note how the line works because the words “inverse” and “universe” set up a nice rhythm and alliteration.


  1. Yes, it’s a cruel, cruel world . . .

  2. Isn’t it, though? Particularly regarding those parts of it that are edible.
