Whether you like to binge on TV shows or a gooey cheesecake - we all have our own set of guilty pleasures. These are things that we usually avoid for multiple reasons, but even the best of us can succumb to every now and then. One long-standing joke is about people who have high calorific foods while avoiding sugar. Thus, they end up drinking alternatives with artificial sweeteners in them along with other high-calorie foods such as pizzas or burgers. This hilarious irony was the subject of a recent funny tweet, which has gone viral on the micro-blogging platform Take a look:
Is watching Great British Baking Show while on the treadmill the same as eating pizza with a Diet Coke? Guilty of both.— Claire McCaskill (@clairecmc) February 16, 2021
