Diets aren’t much fun, and constantly being told what not to eat makes them even less bearable.
And speaking of bearable, it’s time to bear another one of Bearman’s charity drives. Bearman is a cartoonist who once a year holds an event to raise money for the Cincinnati FreeStore Foodbank and the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati. The best thing about it is you don’t have to pay or doanate anything, he does! So go on over to the Bearman Cartoon Challenge and make him pay. And pay. And pay!
You need to make that belt Wombat resistant.
Making it wombat resistant would be difficult, but making it Winky resistant would be almost impossible.
If only you could harness that creative power for invention not destruction…
I was under the impression that I did.
I’m creative! Sometimes. Well, okay. Maybe not.
You figured out the whole paint stick problem.
That’s right, I did!
Maybe if you made the belt out of chocolate?
I’d like that! Of course, it wouldn’t last very long, though.
Then problem solved 🙂
I guess you’re right!
I would enjoy the chocolate version too 🙂
I going to tell Binky to start making chocolate Diet Advisors!
How did that fly?
He ignored me, like usual! I think maybe I should try to make some chocolate Diet Advisors myself.
Yes but would an invention advising you to eat more chocolate be a good idea when the original one is to reduce your intake? 🙁
I was just going to make a Diet Advisor look-alike out of chocolate. But I think one that advised me to eat more chocolate would be a great idea!
I think that both of these versions will be very popular Winky 🙂
I better get to work making them, then!
Thanks Peter for the shout out. But did you really have to put that together with a cartoon about being fat? haha
Fit or Fat? Seemed like a good fit at the time!
Winky, Diet means:
D = Do
I = Indulge
E = Eatable
T = Treats
So Winky, the bottom line is…the “Diet Advisor Belt,” does need work.
I could live with that definition of DIET!
Could? How about will?
Okay, I will! I don’t have much trouble indulging in food!
I could live by your definition of Diet.
Yeah, you don’t have to die for that kind of diet!
Well…we’d enjoy it anyway. 🙂
Shh. That may not have been the thing to reveal to Winky.
It’s okay, I won’t tell him!
Winky shouldn’t have to suffer though.
Eat up, Winky D.I.E.T all you want.
I will, but I promise not to tell myself!
That diet advisor looks like it might need a cookie.
And a muzzle, too!
And another good thrashing 🙂
Yeah, especially if I hear a peep out of it!
Or even a squeak 🙂
Or a squeal!
Those Diet Monitors make a lot of noises even when they have been tripped over, run over by a truck, a car, Zombies and smashed with a hammer 🙁
I guess I didn’t do a very good job of silencing it! Accidentally silencing it, I mean.
Well at least it has stopped mentioning the eating of the cookies, chocolates and to do more exercising, so not a bad result 🙂
Yeah, that was pretty annoying!
The chocolate one’s won’t have time to say anything, especially with you around 🙂
Except maybe “Noooo!” just before I take a bite out of them!
Huahahahaha I love what you did to that useless machine!!! Good job Wink *high five*
I knew you’d understand, Kroten!
Kroten certainly enjoys his food 🙂
She’s like a turtle version of me!
Yes always hungry for the best foods, sweet tasting desserts, chocolates, marshmellows, pancakes, wine gums and a never-ending supply of all of them 🙂
The never-ending part is the best part! Well, maybe the chocolate is. Or the wine gums. Or maybe it’s the pancakes. . .
Ha! That belt would have short-circuited on it’s own if it had to follow me around the kitchen all day!
Don’t tell Binky, but I gave mine a little help!
Amazing what a chip wrapper in the circuitry can do.
And what an accidental drop from a second story window can do.
It looks like it was run over by a truck 🙂
Actually it was a car.
Must have been a big car.
I might have accidentally stomped on it a bit, too.
I think that a herd of Zombies ran over it too by the resulting obliteration of that one off unit 🙂
Finally the Zombies are on my side!
Be careful Winky they eat everyone’s chocolates, especially the chocobrains 🙁
Don’t worry, I keep my extra chocolate in the safe!
I think there are a herd of Zombies trying to figure out the cobination of your safe, be careful Winky 🙁
Bad Zombies, bad!!
I threw them some raw hamburger because it looks like, well, you know.
They enjoy anything horrible those Zombie types, so all the stinky scraps will do for them 🙂
Maybe I should have thrown them some politicians, then.
They eat politicians for fun mainly but there are always a few of them that they really enjoy tucking into 🙂
There is only one way to lose weight and I refuse to do it. The only diet that really works is…if food taste good, spit it out. It will either make you fat or give you a heart attack.
I might die young…but I plan to do my best not to die hungry.
Oh wait…it’s too late, ha ha. I can’t die young because I’m not young anymore.
We need to invent a good-food diet that fills you up and tastes good. That’s kind of like what I already eat, I guess.
Oh, man I say that garbage to myself everyday. I miss the younger days when I couldn’t get enough food in my belly to last one hour! Keep it broke, Winky.
Don’t worry, I’ll keep broke! And if Binky fixes his Diet Advisor, I’ll hide it!
I think you need a belt that accepts bribery!
That might be a solution! Or maybe I could just “lose” it!
That is one way to shed weight.
Yeah, that thing must’ve weighed at least a kilo!
I would do the same thing with that invention. Maybe even worse. Just saying.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
And no one would blame you! Well, maybe Binky would.
I don’t like that “Diet” word. I wouldn’t like a “Diet Advisor” I have trouble advising myself…I keep telling myself I am “eating healthy”…then I see chocolate and say something like “Dark Chocolate is good for me”. hehehe
Dark chocolate is good for you! And so are wine gums. And pancakes. And fudge. And brownies. And chocolate cake. And I’m getting hungry!
Hmmmm…. I’m not convinced about fudge
Fudge is good for you because it makes you happy. Anything that makes you happy has to be good for you, right?
Yes now that you mention it, I am getting hungrier by the minute 🙂
We’d better have some triple chocolate pancakes, then. With fudge!
Yes and with a chocolate milkshake to was it all down 🙂
That sounds good!
And it is an excuse to eat even more pancakes in between sips 🙂
Are you ready for another helping of quadruplet pancakes and marshmellows Winky? 🙂
I was full for a minute there, but I got over it. So yeah, I’m ready for another serving!
The ‘Diet Advisor’ just got a lobotomy.
And I don’t know how it got that way.
Yes, an accidental accident!
With me it can’t work too. I’m stubborn, and when somebody tries to force me for doing something, I’m doing something totally opposite. 😉
I guess if I want you to do something, I should try to force you to do the opposite!
Yes a good idea Winky 🙂
I thought so!
He realy destroyed that advisor. 🙂
I, umm, tripped.
I don’t think I’d like it either, Winky.
I think only Binky thought it was a good idea.
That belt needs gagging 🙂
I think I’ve silenced it permanently! At least I hope I have.
We should collect all the weighing machine and exercise belts and throw them in some other planet..you did a great job by breaking that stupid useless belt or as we say we “tripped”
Yay to all the crunchy yummy food
And i did make Bearman pay 🙂
The only problem is, Binky will probably make more. Maybe I should send Binky to another planet. He’d probably like that!
Somewhere in the universe is a planet that needs Binky’s diet monitor, maybe the Martians will be interested? 🙂
I don’t know, but it wouldn’t hurt to send Binky to Mars to find out!
Try Mercury…the gravity is stronger.
But isn’t it a tad hot?
Maybe he could invent a Keep Cool Monitor for that scenario 🙂
Binky probably could. Now we just have to find a way to send him there.
He will be stuck in the lab for weeks trying to figure it out.
I didn’t think of that, but if it keeps Binky busy and away from reinventing the Diet Monitor thingy, then that’s good!
And in the meantime you can get busy on the chocolate one’s, I just hope that you can resist eating them all before they are completed 🙂
That might be part of the reason why I don’t have any chocolate ones left. I’ll make some more, don’t worry!
I was wondering why there was such a short supply on those chocolate monitors, even though you have been working on them for days, I guess they each have to be tested, and so the more you make, the more you eat, it is simple mathematics 🙂
I have to make sure they’re good! So they have to be taste-tested. And then sometimes I don’t know when to stop the testing because they taste so good!
Your skills for eating are legendary 🙂
Probably because I’ve been practicing my whole life!
The diet advisor is just jealous coz it can’t eat anything, LOL!
You mean I should have fed it, instead of hammering it?
Hey you tripped, remember? 🙂
Oh, yeah. I must’ve tripped with a hammer in my hand!
ha-ha… I think I’m wearing one!… you nailed the dieting life!
“Diet” is just another way of saying “denial”.
Now the Diet Advisor will have no one to talk to. It will be lonely.
Well, maybe it can talk to some of Binky’s other
I already made Bearman pay a couple of times this charity drive, but I do not think I hit him as hard as Winky hit the advisor.
So, I have to ask…does overeating work on Wombies the way it works on human children…do they eat enough, get sick and not want the food again?
If you’re talking about chocolate, wine gums, pancakes, and Spam, then no. We can’t overeat that stuff. If you mean broccoli or that kind of bad stuff, then yeah.
I see. Only the stuff you do not like in the first place. Got it.
That’s about it!
Diets are for the obese. Do you think you’re obese, Winky? I think you’re naturally plump 🙂
I’ll go for the naturally plump. Plus, I’m more lovable that way!
Naturally plump, lovable and cuddly! Is squishy okay as well? heehee 🙂
I am kind of squishy, too. And not just my brain!
That thing should have gone in the trash a few statements ago. 🙂
Don’t worry, I think I’ve permanently silenced it.
Maybe the diet advisor should be fastened around the fridge door!
But then I’d have to get another fridge!
The diet adviser is a real nagger. It must’ve been designed by a woman, Twink maybe had a hand in it???
No, Binky invented the Diet Advisor. I guess he thought nagging me to death would help me lose weight.
Put a sock in it Winky 🙂 Noooooooooo I didn’t mean shut up, I meant put a sock in the monitor, that will shut it up if there is a second attempt at urging you to stop over eating 🙂
I’ll try that if Binky comes up with another one of those monitors!
Hey Winky, don’t let my Mum get her hands on one of those or she’ll have it strapped around me as quick as a flash.
I think I’ve taken care of it, but if Binky makes another one I’ll try to get rid of it quick so none of us will have to suffer.
There’s a fine line between advising and nagging. If nothing else, at least Winky’s patience is thin!
But I still don’t look any better in the mirror!
ohhh nooo Winky is cute the way he is. No need to wear a diet advisor.
Okay, I won’t then!
Since Winky’s going to eat that stuff anyway, the diet adviser is like a mean commentator. Version 2.0 should be the encouraging food contest model!
I’d like one that encourages me to eat! Not that I really need to be encouraged to eat.
Hey where is everyone today? 🙁 Maybe it’s that invention of Binky’s that has got everyone working on another design? 🙂 I know, let’s have some pancakes and a chocolate milkshake to make up for it 🙂
That sounds like a good idea to me! I think maybe Binky’s diet monitor has scared everyone off of eating too much. Well, except me of course.
Not from what I can tell. Every place I went today, someone was trying to feed me.
Could you use a sidekick?
I will bring the napkins and an extra supply of strawberry jam doughnuts 🙂
Sounds like a feast to me!
It is! Not sure how the children have not popped. They have eaten the live-long day! All Little V can say is she is ready for the Bear to be home to cook something for her.
Maple fudge pancakes, I hope!
Wow me too 🙂 Sluuuuuurp
Whoa! Where can I buy one of those?
Binky doesn’t have any currently in stock. And if he makes any more, I think they might get accidentally broken.
I lost some weight before. Then I remembered where I put it. LOL
That always happens to me, too! And I usually find more weight than I lost!
Haha! where can I get one of those
It’s a long wait my friend as Winky keeps eating them all (the chocolate substitutes I mean 🙂 )
Yeah, Binky hasn’t made any more of the original Diet Monitors yet. And I’ve been having a few problems with the chocolate ones. Well not really problems. I’ve just been eating them.
It is hard being so indulgent but you are so good at it that it is becoming an art form 🙂
I try my best when eating is involved!
Resistance is futile.
Yeah, I don’t even try to resist!
This belt could replace The Biggest Loser!
I don’t think I want to be a loser.
