Carbohydrates are used by your body to be converted into energy, which keeps your heart beating, your legs moving and your brain functioning on a higher level than the rest of the animal kingdom (except maybe dolphins). One great thing about the human body is that, in a pinch, it can convert protein into energy instead of carbs. However, in retaliation to this distinct injustice, your mouth (a part of the body co-op) emits the noxious and debilitating stench of rotting meat, that can be smelled by anyone within a two yard radius of what used to be just another harmless face hole. This is what happens to those unfortunate and gullible souls who have chosen to adhere strictly to the atkins diet regime. Everyone in Orange County is on the Atkins diet. Every last stinking one of them.
