Default At least it's not just us Americans...

But I have noticed a trend since I've been back in Florida. On several occasions, I've been walking through the grocery store or Wal-Mart, and noticed an obviously overweight child who is too old to be sitting in the shopping cart, sitting in the shopping cart being pushed around. And I'm talking probably 5 to 8 years old here. (Think sitting in the front section, not the little toddler seat at the back.) It's all I can do not to go over to the parent and say "Y'know, I'd wager that little porkchop here might benefit from being made to walk around this store for a change." I never, not once in four years of living in San Diego, saw this kind of thing. For that matter, I didn't see a hell of a lot of fat children to begin with. I'm starting to realize that some of these broad stereotypical generalizations about the south really are true...

I swear the little girl I saw sitting in the cart at Costco the other day must've been 120 pounds, and only around 8-9 y/o.

We see OTR drivers quite often. Once had a driver that could barely fit through the door of his truck. And you do not want to know what it smelled like in there.

I got an idea, instead of eating every chance you get, GO TO THE GYM.

It would probably be cheaper for the govt to buy all of them gastric bands then pay for benefits.

Beer and Fish and Chips will do that to ya.

Big gulps and Big Macs will also do that to ya.

I agree completely with Joe. I grew up in the mid-west (missouri) around some really ******* fat *** kids, adults and people in general. Also spent 6 months in houston last year, same story there. My god people in texas are huge. Morbidly fat people are few and far between it seems here on the west coast. What gives?

Something happened there. Too many generations interbreeding on the same island.

LOL, this **** is too funny!

Im taking six classes and working over 30 hours a week and still have time to:

Build a car and turbo it
Work out and lose 70+ pounds(lost count)
Play bass in my band and record
Kayak with hot peices of *** in the beautiful keys
Then ******* these hot peices of ***(cuban girls)
Work on my friends cars
Play pool in the college's billiards club
Tutor people in my trig class for 3 hours on fridays
etc.etc.

and I have to drive 25 miles to get to my classes. Having 1 road sucks.

Last year I decided I didnt want to be fat any more so I started busting my *** and lost over 70 pounds so far.

These people are hopeless
