Better Fasting through Atkins

So, Harriet was razzing me at the funeral dinner over my being on a low-carb diet. Finally, she said, "I think I'll go get some DESSERT," and got up to fetch it. I said, "Didn't you know that Jesus was on a low-carb diet?" She paused in mid-step, halfway to the dessert table, and gave me a surprised look, waiting. I said, "Don't you remember where he said, 'I have meat to eat ye wot not of?'"
