There are those on Newsvine who think we need a little diversion right now. The election is over, the blame is being apportioned, the Repubs are being lectured on how they must 'change' to attract a larger base. Booooring.
A friend sent this via email and I thought some might enjoy it.

Tous les ans, les magazines nous annoncent un nouveau régime miracle.
Et à chaque fois, le même constat : ça ne marche pas.
Pour mincir efficacement et durablement, il n'y a pas de miracle, il faut adopter un régime équilibré, boire de l'eau et faire régulièrement de l'exercice.
Envie de baisser les bras ? C'est là qu'intervient votre partenaire minceur. Mincir sans se forcer, de façon fun et ludique c'est possible.
As a courtesy to the non French speakers (myself included), I went to a free site for a translation. In the spirit of you get what you pay for, here it is:
All the years, the magazines we announce a new regime miracle. And each time, the same observation: it doesn't work. To slim down effectively and sustainably, there is no miracle, there is a need to adopt a balanced diet, drink of the water and do regular exercise. Want to lower the arm? That is where your partner thinness. You can enjoy losing weight without force, so fun and playful that is possible.
I think the translation might have been done by the same Chinese agency that writes the instructions for the 'some assembly required' items we buy.
