As some people are celebrating holidays that include things like chocolate, candy, and feasts, I am seeing a ton of food shaming, food policing, and food moralizing. All of this is crap, for the reasons I explain here, but I thought what I would do today is give you some options for response. Note, today’s responses are in pictures (mostly starring our adorable dogs – you can click on them to enlarge them) If you are looking for verbal responses, head over here.

Just me and my fat Mom so we are spared. My heart goes out to those in the trenches!
Fix: Eat it and make mmmn yum yum sounds when you see the food police start to twitch in your direction.
Those darling doggies made my day! Fortunately, my holidays are spent among the enlightened – the only food comments made are “Gee, this sure is yummy!” and “Please, have some more if you’d like”.
The dogs remind us that it’s always a good plan to have another arrow in the self-defense quiver.
Thanks SO much for this!
I love these memes! Wonderful!
Hug your puppies for us!
