Kids, Go Slow on Fast Food – It Makes You Fat
Knock, knock, knock…
Wendy Body and Toby Body came to open the door.
“Hello there, dear kids! We are from Fast Food Kingdom. Oh, let
me introduce myself. My name is Mr. Fried Chicken. These people
behind me are my friends - Mr. French Fries, Mr. Supersized
Chicken Burger, Mr. Maximized Hamburger, Mr. Long Hot Dog, Mr.
Extra Cheesy Cheeseburger and Mr. Cola Soda.
“How old are you both?”
The Body siblings replied, “We are twins and we are ten years
old, thank you.”
“Oh my, you twins are sweet and polite”, said Mr. Fried Chicken.
“We are the Faz-Fud Dudes. If you become our friends, you will
get free toys to play with. Do you want to be friends with us?”
asked Mr. Fried Chicken.
“No, no, no. Our mom and dad told us not to talk to strangers.
By the way, they told us that people like you will make us fat,
especially through the oil to fry the fries and the saturated
fats in meat and skin. You people have the reputation to be very
addictive, which will only make us eat more.
Mr. Fried Chicken tried to persuade Wendy and Toby again. “No -
no. We do not mean to force you to become our close friends in
an instant. You do not need to welcome us every day. Once in a
while, we can play, we will give you toys.” Mr. French Fries
added, “We are not stalkers. We are appetite pleasers. I am sure
you hate those celery stalks and broccoli in your school meals.”
Toby retorted. “No thanks. We don’t want to die so early.
Moreover, by becoming friends with you, we are sure that we do
not get the toys for nothing. Most of you have bad fats. The
likes of Mr. Supersized Chicken Burger, Mr. Maximized Hamburger,
Mr. Extra Cheesy Cheeseburger and Mr. Long Hot Dog will
super-shrink our arteries with their high cholesterol contents.”
“Yeah”, Wendy chipped in. “Besides, you fail to let us know that
Mr. Cola Soda has almost nine teaspoons of sugar. We are young,
but we are not fools to fall for your sweet temptations. We
certainly do not want to end up in Kingdom Hospital. We don’t
want to sleep on the bed the whole day.
We want to go to school and play. We want to be happy. So, stay
away from us!”
Feeling rather defeated, the Faz-Fud Dudes left. Suddenly, Vege
Lady, Fruitzy and Nutty Boy appeared.
“Hi there kids. Aren’t those Faz-Fud Dudes annoying”, said Vege
The rest joined in, “Yeah, they should not force you to become
their friends if you refused. Do not worry. We are here for you.
We will be present if they are to disturb you again. We will
make sure you will be protected from becoming obese, and
affected by all sorts of diseases and
ailments. We sure hate to see you in Kingdom Hospital.”
Nutty Boy exclaimed, “They may have toys, but we have health
What we have are lots of vitamins and other antioxidants. And
don’t think I have lots of fats. My nuts friends and I have
healthy fats that take care of your heart and equip you with
brainy brains too!”
“Yes, yes, yes. We want to live happily and healthily ever
after,” the Body siblings sing in unison.
The sibling’s neighbor and school mates; Lazy Fuzzy and Food
Junkie heard their conversation. They cannot believe what the
siblings are getting into. “Faz-Fud Dudes are the best. They
taste much better than yucky greens. Do not become friends with
Vege Lady and the gang” they exclaimed.
“We sure are having fun with the many toys Faz-Fud Dudes gave
us. In fact, we invite them rather frequently,” Food Junkie
sniggers. Lazy Fuzzy added, “We are best friends.”
Fast forward 30 years later, Lazy Fuzzy accidentally met Wendy
Body and Toby Body in a car park. “Hey there, how are you? Where
is Food Junkie?” asked Toby Body. In an instant, Food Junkie
lowered his head and said sombrely, “He passed away few days
ago. He had died of a heart attack. He is still young at the age
of early forties. Only old people have heart attack. The doctor
said it was because of Faz-Fud Dudes.”
They all hugged each other and cried.
