Those wacky corporate mergers!

So apparently the Swiss conglomerate Nestle is buying diet giant (no pun intended... well, maybe just a little) Jenny Craig. Of course, Nestle is known for its chocolate, not exactly a dieter's friend.

Mind-numbing TV shows about kids' slothfulness, and now this. What's next --YUM brands (owner of KFC and Taco Bell among others) buying Lean Cuisine? Philip Morris buying Blue Cross and Blue Shield? Weird.

Maybe they're gonna close 'em up so they can sell more chocolate. Or add more chocolate to the diet so it takes longer to reach goals.

Actually, Nestle owns Lean Cuisine. So they are already working both sides of the fence.
