Embedded text or transcriptI'm on strict diet to get thin, so order what you want without regard to what I have
I'm dieting too, to get fat
I mustn't touch soup, for example
But I was particularly warned against soup!
I'm forbidden potatoes, naturally
Oh, but I say, so am I!
The specialist told me to eat lots of green salads
But my specialist said the same to me! - Said I required the vitamines in salads
I tell you it's no joke - I have to walk for an hour before breakfast
But so do I! - The man said it would tone up my system
I say, what's your man's name? - Mine's Wimpole of Harley Street
That's mine!
