Perhaps if David had Fasted Every Other Day? (The Give-away!)

Perhaps the most famous portrayal of youth, vitality and general GQ hunkiness, young David the Israelite is forever immortalized in the moment he decides to take on the giant. (Michelangelo ~ 1504)







Here, young David the Israelite becomes the giant by eating fast food several times a week. (America ~ 2008)

I first saw these images at Nancy's site, Marie Millard. I tracked them to eternallycool.net who reported that the images are part of an advertising campaign by Scholz & Friends of Hamburg, Germany, who first created them for the German Olympic Sport Committee.

The original message: “If you don’t move, you get fat.”

And now, I present to you the winner of The Alternate Day Diet book by James B. Johnson, M.D.: "Robin," who doesn't have a blog but left me her email addy. I hope you enjoy it, Robin!

This is so funny! But sad because there was/is a need for it...well, maybe I won't have those cookies I was planning on eating tonight.

I love to laugh, so I'm glad I found your site (and you mine, too). The Just Humor Me! meme on my site is new- yes I "invented" it, really to contribute to my sanity, but I try not to tell people that :) Anyway, hope you will be back and link up for all us humor fans!

I'll be back to yours...

I'll be back, Heidi. Everybody should go check out Heidi's "Just Humor Me" feature. Lots of you write things that might be applicable. FYI, I'm typing on my husband's laptop in a hotel room, so every letter is laborious. I hate the feel of laptops.

Now that makes sense ... an advertising campaign! Thanks for researching it.

I'll go peek at Heidi's Just Humor Me feature.

Enjoy the weekend.

David, David... you are supposed to slay the giant not sauté and eat the giant. *tsktsk*

I'll check out the humor me blog, sounds fun.

Aww poo... now I'll have to go buy the book ;-)

Wow, isn't that the truth!

Congrats to "Robin". I'm doing my own version of the diet (just by reading your blogs -- Dr. J needs to PAY you, because I really will buy the book!) I've lost 12 lbs already. AND...today I fit back into one size smaller. Yahoo!!!

Denise said...

Okay...that may be David after fast food but if feels like me after a week at the beach on vacation!

PJ--WHAT??? Are you serious?? Oh my gosh! I'm going to inform Dr. Johnson about this!

Robin M. said...

Thanks so much for the drawing. I still can't believe I won... someone pinch me... no, on second thought, don't. :)
