This is a day I can handle

Today is National Potato Chip day. How cool is that? :-)

But, you know, potato chips aren't as good as they used to be. Way back when, people and manufacturers weren't so concerned about the health attributes of a snack food. Way back when, potato chips were greasy and salty and, man-oh-man, they tasted good.

Were they good for you? Hell no!

Are potato chips good for you now? Hell no! Regardless of what the one chip maker indicates in their television commercial, potato chips are not healthy and eating them is not a good way to lose weight. Sheesh, how dumb do they think we are?

No, today's potato chip might be half as unhealthy as they were in days past. But they also only taste half as good.

As long as we eat them in moderation, we can be happy. Not necessarily fat.
