Q: I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

A: Thicker gravy.
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You
should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

the best feel good food around!”
