The Purina Dog Food Diet

Category: Rated PG-13, Shaggy Dogs

This is from my Aunt Jimmie. Thanks.


I was in Wal-Mart buying a large bag of Purina for my dog and was in line to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog……..

Well, duh!

I was feeling a bit crabby, so on impulse I told her no, I was starting The Purina Dog Food Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t, because I’d ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care unit with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV’s in both arms.

Her eyes about bugged out of her head. I went on and on with the bogus diet story and she was totally buying it.

I told her that it was an easy, inexpensive diet and that the way it works is to load your pockets or purse with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The package said the food is nutritionally complete, so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy behind her.

Horrified, she asked if something in the dog food had poisoned me and was that why I ended up in the hospital.

I said no…..I’d been sitting in the street, licking my butt, when a car hit me.

I thought the tall guy was going to have to be carried out the door.
