2e or not 2e

--that is the question:
whether 'tis nobler in decimal to suffer
the slings and ages of outrageous fortune
or to take arms against a sea of troubles
and with hex might befriend them.   To bake, to buy-
once more--and by a bake to say we make 
chocolate, and the thousand calories
that flesh may grow by.  "tis an adipose day
devoutly to be wished.  To eat, get fat--
get fat--perchance infarction; ay, there's St. Mary's, 
for in that place of life triple bypass
when we have filled our arteries full up, 
give us no pause.  There's the good health
that makes calamity of office life.
For who would bear the bran and lean of life,
the dreadful lean dieticians impose?
Away, let's eat, start the day right,
for peanut butter by another name
might be a rose.
