The Eternal Battle... And God populated the earth with broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so People would live long and healthy lives. And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the 99-cent double cheeseburger, the Quarter Pounder with cheese, special sauce, and bacon. And Satan said to People "You want fries with that?" And People said, "Super-size them." And People gained pounds. And God created the healthful yogurt, that People might keep their figures. And Satan froze the yogurt and he brought forth chocolate, caramel sauce, sugar-coated nuts, and brightly-colored sprinkles candy to put on the yogurt. And People gained some more pounds. And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad." And Satan brought forth creamy dressings, bacon bits, fried croutons, and shredded cheese. And there was ice cream and brownies for dessert. And People gained even more pounds. And God said, "I have sent your heart healthy vegetables and olive oil with which to cook them." And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter, plus southern fried chicken and Krispy Kreme donuts filled with artificially flavored butter crÃ¨mes. And People gained lots of pounds and their bad cholesterol went through the roof. And God brought forth running shoes and bicycles, and People resolved to lose those extra pounds. And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so they would not have to toil to change channels between ESPN, ESPN2, HBO, TMC and MTV. And People gained many, many more pounds. And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil." And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fat fried them. And he created sour cream dip and fried the skins. And People clutched their remote control and ate the potato chips and fried potato skins swaddled in cholesterol. And they gained a whole lot more pounds. And Satan saw and said, "It is good." And everyone went into cardiac arrest. And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery..... And Satan created HMOs.
