Akpos is terribly overweight, so his doctor puts him on a diet.

"I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and

repeat this procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you,

you'll have lost at least five pounds."

When Akpos returned, he shocked the doctor by losing nearly

twenty pounds. "Whao! That's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did

you follow my instructions?"

Akpos nodded, "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to

drop dead that third day."

"From hunger, you mean?", asked the doctor."

"No, from all that skipping."
