Avoid Eating Fat. Advice From Siri

TheFatNurse saw this ad over the weekend. Apparently the key to a successful life is to avoid eating fat…according to Apple. Le sigh.

Malkovich: Life.

Siri: Try and be nice to people. Avoid eating fat. Read a good book every now and then. Get some walking in. And try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.

Malkovich: That’s pretty spectacular advice, actually. Thank you. I enjoyed this chat immensely. You are very eloquent.

Siri: That’s nice of you to say.

  1. People often hold government dietary advice blameless for the rise of obesity, on the theory that no typical person pays any attention to the government guidelines. But, here’s another example of how a dumb government program that started in the 1970s has permeated pop culture to become the background and context from which we have to learn to deviate. If I had nothing to do for the next ten years, I’d chronicle how that happened.

    • That’s a good observation KevinF, it’s become the “norm” which makes it so hard to deviate from for most people since it’s just accepted as the truth and never really evaluated critically.
