Ridiculous Study of the Week: Food Choices and Dating


In another example of brilliant research we have now just learned that:

Women are way less likely to order fatty, indulgent dishes while in the presence of an attractive man

I know what you’re thinking, who gives a crap, right? And that is the point.  How does this gain any attention when the results won’t benefit anyone at any time?

Oh, and before I forget, the same research also found that:

Men tend to order more expensive drinks and dishes after exposure to an attractive female, regardless of whether those menu items were healthy or unhealthy.

I believe the video above from the movie Burn After Reading says it all. I may have to make a Palmer Award at the end of the year for the most ridiculous study of them all.

    Good video clip. It is also probably a pretty good representation of the final conversation between President Trump and Speaker Ryan on their attempt to repeal and replace the ACA.
