Kids are pretty good at nagging their moms into purchasing unhealthy snacks, but Kick Out the Iambs says there's an even more effective method:
I initially read "nagging" as "negging". And now I'm wondering if negging your mom would actually work - "I know you'd buy that for me.....if you could afford it", "I know you're not trying to be mean....you just know you'll never lose those 5 extra pounds with cookies in the house."
