My brain, unedited

What comes out of my brain and what actually ends up published at Summer Tomato are two very different beasts. My brain is politically incorrect, foul-mouthed, irreverent and generally awesome. Summer Tomato is kind, caring, clever and thoughtful.

Here's a peak at the original outline from today's post at Summer Tomato. +1 gutter-brain! 

10 reasons dieting is retarded

1. They don't work.
2. They fuck up your metabolism.
3. They make you miserable.
4. They make u a buzzkill.
5. They destroy your relationship with food.
6. The food tastes like ass.
7. They're hard.
8. They're temporary.
9. They cost money.
10. There's a better way.

BwaHaHa, Oh the beauty & elegance of blunt honesty! I love it. In general, American society would do well to get over itself and become a little less politically correct and little more honest. Well done, Darya.

that is, if the definition of diet means not eating, as opposed to just eating healthy :)

i.e I WANNA DIET AND STARVE vs. i'm on a vegetarian diet
