Remember the Too Fat Polka? It went like this...
Ever wonder why the majority of Americans are overweight? No? Well, there are enough signs out there.
For example, Michelle Obama has adopted every obese child in the nation to take under her wing and convince them to eat better. Although I doubt the West Wing is big enough to hold them all.
Times are sad when one of the most popular shows on TV is "The Biggest Loser". Now who ever came up with the idea of putting a bunch of 300 plus pounders together "workin it" for the rest of the world to see. That's not too much information, that's too much cellulite. Never thought I'd say this, but bring back Sweatin' To The Oldies.
And the hamburger companies aren't helping. Every second ad on TV these days is about some super sized, multi-pound, bacon-topped (okay there's nothing wrong with that ingredient), cheese-added gargantuan slab of hamburger. McDonald's, who once prided themselves on their "healthy" menu of salads and such now advertises a three-quarter pound burger. Where's the beef? In your ever expanding belly!
It's no wonder the Canadian and American Army brass decided to remove Tim Horton's and Burger King from their Afghan bases. They say an army runs on it's stomach. It was getting to the point these armies couldn't run!
Wait a minute. I think I may have stumbled upon something. Wait a minute. Why not transfer these fast-food outfits to the Taliban, wait a few months, and...I'm lovin' it!
