Made me chuckle, so why not a post so you can too?
It came via one of those emails this morning. Y’know, the ones you get from your health care provider—in this case, Kaiser Permanente—because they want to see you making better lifestyle choices in the pursuit of lower costs and hence, greater profits. Nothing wrong with that. Imagine what a huge HMO could do by talking and admonishing paleo to their customers, managing the process? Just imagine it.
It’ll never happen, though, because the externalities would just never work anytime soon. They’d get hammered and lose customers. Big companies would switch providers. It would all be explicitly engineered by the USDA and its whores in the media. There would be…SHUDDER…Press Conferences! And that’s not even to say that an HMO itself wouldn’t resist even if they believed it would truly help people. After all, they like their economies of scale and having a huge percentage of patients go managed paleo would shrink their whole enterprise over time.
Well, they’re all fuckers. What did you expect?
“Dress your pasta in this traditional, healthy sauce.”
My first thought after the chuckle? Bet it’s got no meat in it. My second chuckle was that it was a recipe for WhoreSauce—Puttanesca—the traditional pasta sauce Italian prostitutes devised for after a night of hard work on their backs. How fitting. It’ll put ’em to sleep until noon, I guess.
Here’s the recipe, in case you’re interested. And oh, it does have the virtue of 3 whole entire anchovy filets!!! to detract from its healthfulness pasta-bilities.
