Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.
Get ta preppin’
There are only 23 days until Thanksgiving. It is time to get in shape. And no, we don’t mean dieting (never!). We mean *slowly preparing your tummies for maximum stretch capacity.
It’s gonna take hard work. It’s gonna require dedication. You might fall into traps as you find your way, such as spontaneous napping or serious bloating — the turkey dinner prep process is art plus science at its finest, people. But in the end, you’ll pummel this epic meal as exquisitely as Rocky took down Ivan Drago in “Rocky IV.”
*We are not, nor have we ever been or likely ever will be medical professionals. Enlarge your tummies at your own risk.
