A dietitian is addressing an audience in the Sholem Retirement Home. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here years ago.
"Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be dirty and disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.
"But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and most of us have eaten it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after you eat it?"
In the front row, 75-year-old Morris stands up and says, "Vedding cake."
