Quote of the Day (U.K. “Daily Express,” on the Recession-Induced “Credit Munch”)

“Stressed-out Britons have piled on 20 million stone in a year trying to ‘comfort eat’ their way through the recession, according to a report out today.

“The condition – dubbed the credit munch – has seen three-in-five Britons put on weight in the past 12 months, according to research by on-line pharmacy”—“Credit Munch Britons Put on 20 Million Stone,” The Daily Express (U.K.), May 11, 2009

Gosh—this sounds bad….Sort of like how Liz Lemon’s friend Jenna on 30 Rock warns her against an old boyfriend by comparing him to cheese doodles: “You know they’re bad for you, but you eat them because it’s easier than cooking.”

Credit munch….You don’t suppose it can jump across the Atlantic, by spreading through cows or even products of the soil, do you?

Nah…that would be credit mulch, I’m afraid.
