Actually, it's parodying the parody threads. Neato, huh?

I'd imagine the percentage of the population overweight in Britain is larger (no pun intended) than in America.

Hi, Mrs Moss

There's no mystery to this. People eat far more than they need to.

So true! When I'm in America I am always astounded by the size of people over there - and it's not just one or two of them either, it's 'normal' to be overweight. Ug!

and drink too much, far too much.

Poor diet... fat too many turkey twizzlers, mcdonalds, crisps & fizzy pop...

The reason why 5 year olds wear glasses like bottle bottoms...

sweeping generalisation dont you think, now if you'd asked why the sky is blue or the grass is green you may have got a definitive answer (until some smartass says the sky isnt always blue :roll:) :-D

Technically, the sky itself isn't blue. It's colourless (I think).

Technically, it can emit whatever colour depending on the colour of the sun..

(Boo! for Opera 10 saying my spelling of coloUr is incorrect!)

The sky is still blue, its the clouds in that pic are different.

I agree - I occassionally meet a teacher friend of mine and the streets are packed with fat parents picking their fat kids up in cars.

Obviously that's not true for all of them and you'll get the milfs picking up their kids after a gym session occasionally, but there are some real chunky mothers out there.

Sky is blue because of the way light is defracted through the atmosphere and grass is green because it gets its colour from the pigment chlorophyll :thumbsup:

People are fatties for a pretty simple reason, the formula is "dinners > exercise = put on weight" or "dinners

Not a massive fan of most fathers who pick up their kids at 3:30 - either a lazy sofa lumberer or a 'committed, loving father'. Either way, not my bag.

The milfs on the other hand usually have the time to work out during the day and are handy for no-strings fun.

I've really got it down to a science.:thumbsup:

Yeah, I've been a few times........ I was just thinking that seeings as America is such a massive (again.... no pun intended :lol:) place, having 5 times the population of the UK the actual percentage of 'fat' people would be lower than over here. Obviously it's not though

tbh in New York and Chicago I didn't think it was any different to say London or Birmingham.
