An Irishman was terribly overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet.
‘I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, then eat regularly again for 2 days then skip a day … And repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost at least 5 pounds.’
When the Irishman returned, he shocked the doctor by having lost nearly 60 lbs!
‘That’s amazing!’ the doctor said, ‘Did you follow my instructions?’
The Irishman nodded: ‘I’ll tell you what though, I taut I were going to drop dead on dat tird day.’
‘You mean from hunger?’
‘No, from all dat skippin!’
