>> why do i feel like i'm going to regret this?
>> my pen doesn't work.
>> pens down.
>> all right. ladies let's see what you drew?
>> you can't really see.
>> okay. cheese and wine. that's not bad.
>> now let me ask you this. do you feel better after having drawn those pictures? because the journal reports that a new study that says drawing pictures of unhealthy food can lift your spirits. drawing made me happier this morning. i did this one of pizza.
>> really? nice.
>> take out a little plate and everything --
>> no, i only had ten seconds. so drawing which foods did the trick? well, according to this, pizza was found to boost attitudes by about 28% of people. cupcakes weren't far behind. 27%. strawberries 22%. forget the pepper, it only lead to 1%.
