Not sure how much weight you'd lose with all those toppings, but oh well...

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: I've invented the next fitness fad.
T-Rex: FROZEN YOGA!
T-Rex: The opposite of hot yoga.[1] You do it in a giant industrial freezer room.
Utahraptor: Ooh! And you add your own toppings!
Utahraptor: Like whipped cream and sprinkles! And it's charged by weight.
T-Rex: Yeah! The more weight you lose, the more you pay.
T-Rex: It's a great way to chill out.

[1] Hot Yoga. Yes, it's really a thing.

This strip was mostly inspired by goat yoga though.

You heard me right. Goat yoga. Also really a thing. (There is also a Wikipedia page, but it reads like an ad, is currently an orphan page (no inbound links), and may well be deleted by the time this comic goes live...)

This also reminds me of a story related by Mr Coker about one of those frozen yoghurt places where you help yourself to a cup, fill it with whatever amount of yoghurt you like, and add your own toppings and sprinkles, and then pay based on the resulting weight. He saw a mother go into one of these places with two young children, and let them assemble their own frozen yoghurts without any assistance...

You can imagine what the kids did, of course. They just piled as much stuff on as they could fit. When it came time to pay, each cup came to about $25 or something.

Cue a huge argument between the mother who arrogantly refused to pay that much and the poor shop assistant, who had to try and recover the cost of the product.
