As if Americans aren’t fat enough

I just laughed when I read this article about the new “all-you-can-eat” seats at Dodger Stadium.  For one price, fans get all the hotdogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts and soda they can consume, and the fans are…sorry for the pun…eating it up.  One fan interviewed for the article (and I don’t imagine he’s the only one) likes to bet his buddies who can eat the most food.  I wonder what the “losers” must do for the “winner”…pay for his cardiac bypass surgery?

    It's getting so bad here in the U.S. that you could almost walk up to any random person and correctly (though impertinently) say "You need to lose 20 pounds."

    Add those Dodger Stadium all-you-can-eat seats to the already ubiquitous nutritionally toxic environments out there. It's harder and harder to find healthy menus out there. It makes me upset enough to go eat 18 hotdogs.
