Thrill's Big Brown Blog Has a Sweet Tooth

March 24, 2017


Dwight Howard, of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks is a bit candy bar obsessed. He was eating the rough equivalent of 24 Hershey Bars a day...everyday...for a decade. No surprise then that he was suffering from a sugar-related malady that was having an effect on his ability to play.  

Fingers tingling... hands cramped up... etc.

Side note: 24 Hershey Bars a day is one an hour...168 a week...over 10 years, Dwight Howard consumed the equivalent of 87, 360 since 2007. 

To give you a little perspective, that's about 36,400 more times than the average person has farted. That is actually true and yes, I did the math.

Now, let's talk Twinkies. Get your mind out of the gutter, I mean the "delicious" Hostess 'sponge cake(???)'. Chicago White Sox 2nd basemen Yoan Moncado was a poverty-stricken Cuban refugee...and then he made $31.5 million...and discovered the joy that only Twinkies can bring. 

He ate 85 Twinkies a WEEK! I don't think I've had 85 Twinkies in my life. And I'm OK with that.

I should be honest with you. As I'm lobbing mild ridicule at these guys, I have a mouthful of Peanut M&M's at this very moment. 

Timing is everything.

On the other hand, I eat a bag of these about once every two weeks, so I'm not doing too bad. At least, not with candy. 

The point of all of this is that today's question was: SAFE TO SAY THAT SOMEONE I KNOW MIGHT BE A TEENY-TINY BIT OBSESSED WITH ____________.

I had a different trajectory for this blog when I originally started. At some point I was gonna address one of my many obsessions...but now I won't. 

Seriously...I was going to, but, yeaaaaah...not feeling it anymore. But only because it's too much to get into...but it will require ('request' really) your suggestions. I'll get to it Monday...but get your mind IN the gutter.

Until then, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
