For the Love of Money

I spend money recklessly. A starving artist once promised me dinner if I purchased his lizard sculpture for $205.

He never called.

I blamed it on my love handles protruding through my dress, so I spent $20 on Hydroxycut gummies from Walmart. After reading the label, I realized there were only enough gummies for five days, and the recommended use was eight weeks to lose an average of 16 pounds, which amounts to two pounds a week, which any idiot could lose by cutting 500 calories a day.  

I’d feed them to the lizard, but I already see his ribs.
