A dietician addresses a large audience in Chicago.
Warming up his theme, he says: “The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all eat it. Can anyone here tell me what lethal product I’m referring to?
Pointing to a man in the front row, he says, “You, sir, in the first row, please give us your idea.”
The man lowers his head and groans, “Wedding cake.”
