Worried about being obese? Well, if you belong to one of these States you probably are, so don’t sweat it! And anywho, if you are to believe the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about 35.7% of all American adults are obese, so you are not alone.
And the winner of the fattest State is Mississippi with 34.9% of the population bursting at the seams. I’d say take a bow, but that could be risky.
Psst Colorado has the skinniest population.
Want fries with that?
Fat and pregnant? No worries. UK doctors are giving overweight pregnant women diabetes pills to stop them producing chubby offsprings. So far 400 fat women have been prescribed metformin in the world first trial. Hmm, what could possibly go wrong?
Want sauce with that?
Look away loons, this story is disturbing. A morbidly obese man, who had been fused to a chair for two years, has died. Yep, the Ohio man had been virtually living in his chair, not budging, while his two roommates (one his girlfriend) fed him. When police arrived they discovered that the unconscious man’s skin was fused to the fabric of the chair and he was sitting in feces, urine and maggots. They eventually had to cut him out of the chair before making a hole in the wall to get him out of the house and into a waiting ambulance. He died later in hospital.
Psst Evidently one of the police officers threw away his uniform after helping cut the man out of his chair.
I don’t know loons, is it me or is watching an obese marmot eating a friggin cracker the funniest thing you’ll see all day?
The Scottish SPCA have put 12 hedgehogs on diets because they are so fat they can’t roll themselves into a ball to protect themselves. I know the feeling!
Holy oversized turkeys Batman. Tasmanian butchers have a crisis people. All their friggin Chrissie turkeys are oversized by up to 2kg, meaning many people wont be able to fit them in their ovens. Oh and don’t blame the breeders, blame the weather. Seems the cooler weather has made them birds, fat as! Geez, I wonder how long it would take to cook one of them suckers, 3 days at the least!
