Doesn't this make more sense?

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is that true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it. don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live linger. That's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism for delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.
Q: Is beer or wine bad for me?
A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world into three categories: animal, mineral, and vegetable. WE all know that beer and wine are not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so that only leaves one thing, right? My advice: Have a burger and a beer and enjoy your liquid vegetables.
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is tow to one, etc.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain ...Good.
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they are permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?
Q: What's the secret to healthy eating?
A: Thicker gravy.
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
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?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO ..Cocoa beans ..another vegetable!!! It's the best feel good food in the world.
Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets. Have a cookie ...flour is a veggie. One more thing. "When life hands you lemons, ask for a bottle of tequila and the salt."
Bob and Margaret were holidaying in Texas. Bob had always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots and here was his chance. Out for a stroll on his own, he found the perfect pair and wore them back to the hotel.
He walks in and says to Margaret, "Notice anything different about me?"
Margaret looks him over, "Nope."
Frustrated, he storms off to the bathroom, undresses and walks back into the room completely naked except for the new cowboy boots.
He asks her again, "Notice anything different about me?"
Margaret looks him over and says, "Bob, what's different? It was hanging down today. It was hanging down yesterday. It'll be hanging down tomorrow."
Furious, Bob yells at her, "AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT IS HANGING DOWN MARGARET?"
"Nope," she replies.
"IT'S HANGING DOWN BECAUSE IT'S LOOKIN' AT ME NEW BOOTS!"
"Shoulda bought a hat, Bob. Should bought a hat."
