News Flash!  Eating less fat is healthier!

 

"Eggs have gotten quite a bad rap lately you know, Smithers."
--C. Montgomery Burns, The Simpsons, [ep.#1F16)

 

So they've been telling us for years that eggs are high in cholesterol, which is bad for you,
and can lead to heart disease,
so too many eggs
can kill you,

so don't eat too many eggs.

And I saw this ad, which at first seems to refute the previous warnings.

Until I read the text at the bottom of the ad, which says

"Now you can have eggs...as long as you cut down on other fatty foods."

And I thought, "well, no shit!"
