Is the fat half full or half empty? (paca)

A couple weeks ago I happened to compare the fat content on a regular beef or pork kielbasa package with that of a turkey kielbasa package. It turns out that the turkey is significantly less fatty than the other. Like a third of the fat. If you had read that, what would your reaction have been?

1) Oh neat, I can eat less fat and still eat a decently yummy sausage!
2) Well, crap, it's not even close. I've gotta buy the turkey one.

My reaction was number 2. Apparently, I am a healthy eating pessimist.
