Did You Know Biz Markie Now Teaches “Healthy Cooking” Classes? Because He Does.

Listen, the holidays are my favorite time of year, but they can also be a little tough, right? There’s goodwill and presents and stuff, but all the cookies and social drinking tend to leave me a little lethargic, a little paunchy, a little sad that I don’t have the specific health and fitness guidance of Biz Markie. It’s just one of those yearly things I thought I’d have to learn to live with, like mosquitos or Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Finally, I know I’m not alone. Living Social’s Washington D.C. branch has offered up a $79-per-person “Hands-On Healthy Cooking Class” with the Biz, explaining, “while you may think meat and potatoes got what you need, in the end they’re just comestible friends.”

Well, slow down and maybe leave the music puns to us, guys — not everyone is a blogger with nothing to do but sit around checking Twitter and thinking this stuff up, after all — but nonetheless, it’s a better offer than the 10 emails a day I usually get from these companies for mildly discounted botox and salsa lessons for “mature adult couples.”

For those of us who have been as worried about our lack of ability to “Prepare chicken satay in peanut sauce, shrimp and vegetable stir-fry, and sugar-free cupcakes” as we have about Biz Markie’s uncertain professional calendar, today is a day to rest a little easier, and trundle down the streets with a little extra spring in our step.
