Art Imitates Life

This whole thing reminds me of my favorite scene from my favorite Woody Allen movie, Sleeper:

Dr. Melik: This morning for breakfast, uh, he requested something called wheat germ, organic honey, and tiger’s milk.

Doctor: Oh yes. Those are the charmed substances that some years ago were thought to contain life preserving properties.

Dr. Melik: You mean there was no deep fat? No steak, or cream pies, or hot fudge?

Doctor: Those were thought to be unhealthy. Precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true.

It’s funny because it’s true…
