most Americans were courageously becoming heavier and significantly more sedentary in proud defiance of the media messages that are broadcast at them throughout the day.
I can't believe this, now they are BRAVE to be fat?

Let's please not give them another excuse to stuff their faces :rolleyes:

“It appears that no matter how much the media glamorizes moving around, eating only three meals a day, or just generally treating one’s body with respect and concern for one’s future well-being, most Americans staunchly refuse to let these messages affect them. The fortitude and strength it must take to do this is truly inspiring.”

Haha Lolita, it's okay!! The Onion does a great job at the tongue-in-cheek sarcasm, to the point where you're not sure if it is a downright joke, or kind of true...

Knowing that this is the attitude of many americans probably didn't help! ;)

The fact is that this could be a real article. I wouldn't be surprized. It isn't, but this line of thinking is what this society has come to sadly.

Haha I saw this the other day and couldn't stop laughing.
I posted this on facebook and let's just say my friends didn't find it as funny as I did...
