Everything Works As Well As Well As Everything Else

Bubble

For The Fat Guy, everything works as well as everything else. He’s tried everything. It all goes to hell. Ergo, everything works as well as everything else.

Exercise
No exercise
High fat, low fat
High carb, low carb
High protein, low protein
Fasting, cycling, three meals, six

Also crying in one’s club soda. Works great. You can’t see the tears through the bubbles.
