Did you know there were rules?

Did you even know that there were certain rules and regulations for eating chocolate? No? Then this came just in the nick of time! Phew!! I need to try just a tad bit harder. Especially on # 4!!

1. If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
2. Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices, and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

3. The Problem: How to get 2 lbs of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. Solution: Eat it in the parking lot!
4. Diet Tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

5. A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?
6. If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer.
But if you can't eat all your chocolates, what's wrong with you?

7. If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.
8. If I eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate, is that a balanced diet? Don't they actually counteract each other?

9. Money talks, chocolate SINGS!
10. Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

Have you every wondered why there are no such organizations as Chocoholics Anonymous?
Uh, Hello? Who would want to quit?! LOL.
If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated! Put "EAT CHOCOLATE" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done!

Have a most excellent day my friends!!


  1. I knew chocolate was the answer to every question!!!!! Don't tell Josh though ... he'll skip right through these last sections in school! lol

    I'm rejoicing with you, my friend over your great reunion to come with your friend.

    Much love to you!

  2. You know there may just be something to that #4
    I once knew a lady with a perfect figure who always ate her dessert before her meal,she said that was how she kept her figure.
    I wonder if that would work with that bowl of ice cream I seem to crave every night.

  3. That is HILARIOUS!
    Where did you get those chocolate signs? Very cute.

  4. Oh, yeah! I'm so with you on this post. :D Chocoholics unite!! :D LOL!

  5. Kim, you are too funny and I am going to be making chocolate chip muffins now!!! That's my added thing to do today! :) HUGS!

  6. Too funny. I totally put that at the top of the list. I can rest easy now that I got one thing checked off the list. :)

  7. fun, fun, fun! I feel better already! Now, where is that chocolate. . .it has to be here somewhere.

  8. My friend - you dedicated a post just to me?? LOL!

    I just love those rules and I hope you link it up tomorrow for Chocolate Friday!

    Thank you for #4!!! And I have to say that #5 is quite handy - I must go get a box of chocolates.

    Big dripping chocolate hugs to you today!!

  9. I've had my chocolate today! A Reese's candy bar after lunch. Yum! My two favorites together; chocolate and peanut butter.

  10. I have absolutely NO chocolate in my house, and now I read this. Are you trying to torture me? ;D

  11. I loved that...I thought it was especially funny that it was right above your "healthy eating" suggestions!

  12. Love this!! What a great post!!

    Coffee sounds good.

    I've told Debi we need to have a FL blogger meet up sometime.

    Once we get done our school year this year, maybe I'll put one together. It would be fun to finally meet :-)

  13. I read Chocolate Rules the other way at first... rules as a verb. Nice how it works both ways.

    #4 is going to be my new #1 diet rule. #6 totally cracked me up. I'm glad you included a Lucy pic. I miss her.

    I must remember to pick up some chocolate bars before I use my BOGO coupon at Ruby Tuesday this weekend. Hmmm... maybe not. I wanna get my money's worth out of that. 8-]

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  14. Chocolate is God's way of telling me he loves me... ALOT!!

  15. Now I have an excuse!!! Thanks! All that "Fruit" I have been eating is working....LOL That was funny!

  16. Since chocolate actually grows on tree and is from a bean I count it as a vegetable. Oh yes, I do not kid. Well, I do, but wouldn't that be neat?! I'm loving these! Who said Friday Funnies had to wait until Friday?! Not us!

  17. I am a big-time chocoholic! I have heard that dark chocolate is good for you, really!

    I like to think that chocolate comes from the cocoa bean and everyone knows that beans are a protein. So eat to your hearts content!!!

  18. Ha... ! Too cute!

  19. You are so much fun. I too am going to practice #4 more! Hee hee. Great fun post. Love it. Now I have a reason to eat more chocolate. I just send them to your post and then there will be no arguments!!! Hugs, love, and blessings to you.


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
