The pastry pusher: Flickr photo of the day

This man would like to blow your diet and ruin your teeth. Photographed in Marrakech, Morocco, by Brad Hammonds, he proudly presents his beautifully arranged display of over a hundred million sugar-laden calories. If you have a sweet tooth, he’s your man.

This man is svelte; he is drinking bottled water, not latte. Shakespeare wrote: “…Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers…” (Romeo and Juliet). Are we to trust a skinny man who sells confections so elaborate and beautiful no ordinary human could resist them? I think not. He is surely an agent of the dental-weight-loss-confectionary complex and he’s out to get your dough.
