I'd rather get sweaty with Richard Simmons

You must check out these actual Weight Watchers Recipe Cards from 1974. The accompanying commentary is priceless:

Once upon a time the world was young and the words "mackerel" and "pudding" existed far, far away from one another.

One day, that all changed. And then, whoever was responsible somehow thought the word "fluffy" would help.

Oh, and eggs, too.

Major kudos to Sheila for the pointer.

Those are great, and completely disgusting.

Every decade has its cross to bear. Well, some more than others. ;)

Too bad the backs of the cards (the recipes) weren't included. Oh, man, those pictures gave me a hankerin' for hunger.

Nononono, folks--you see, those recipe cards did exactly what they were supposed to do: they made you lose your appetite. Just...not in the way the makers originally intended...
