Last Tuesday, I ventured to National Bookstore to pick up a copy of Jackie Lou Blanco's Working Out 2 workout video upon the recommendation of a churchmate who says that it's solid material that should help me shed some unwanted pounds.
Saleslady: Sir, you get a freebie.
Me: I do?
Saleslady: Yes Sir.
Me: Well, bring it on!
Saleslady places a small can of Carne Norte corned beef in my hand.
Riddle me this, Batman: why do purchasers of this workout video get a free can of processed meat that is nothing but oil, salt, and calories? Is it part of one big conspiracy to get us to purchase more corned beef, or associate our weight loss with said product? And does poor J-Lou know about this blatantly unhealthy product placement? Huff, puff, snort, grrr!
Man, it was good, though. Mmmm, monosodium glutamate.
