“Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability.” George Galloway to Saddam Hussein, 1994.

…”G. S. Myers has put together this composite picture of someone with a low risk of CHD:
“. . . an effeminate municipal worker or embalmer completely lacking in physical or mental alertness and without drive, ambition, or competitive spirit who has never attempted to meet a deadline of any kind; a man with poor appetite, subsisting on fruits and vegetables laced with corn and whale oil, detesting tobacco, spurning ownership of radio, television, or motorcar, with full head of hair but scrawny and unathletic appearance, yet constantly straining his puny muscles by exercise. Low in income, blood pressure, blood sugar, uric acid and cholesterol, he has taken nicotinic acid, pyridoxine, and long-term anti-coagulant therapy ever since his prophylactic castration.”

I am sure this is mostly bunk and way overpriced but I like it anyway:
