It’s Time for a New Folk-Saying

In quotes on April 22, 2012 at 3:39 am

Folk-sayings are simple statements of wisdom passed down through the ages.

A stitch in time saves nine.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Wait a minute! From what I know about apples (yes they do have many beneficial health properties), and from what I know about chocolate (even more powerful health benefits), then it is definitely time for a new saying.

Since we now know that chocolate is even more beneficial to health than are apples, why doesn’t it have its own saying?.

My thought is this, given their relative strengths of health promotion, that if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, then a chocolate a day will keep the ambulance away!

What do you think? Email me with your ideas for a new saying attesting to the healthful properties of chocolate. I will publish them on this blog. Let’s see who comes up with the best ones!
