This is what made America great.

The pursuit of freedom to put any thing and any amount in one's mouth.

God love'em.

I think it also shows something else about America,
1/2 package of fried onion strips
when you need to buy fried onions there is something truly wrong. :shock:

I thought the whole idea behind porn was to titillate. If those were pictures of people they might well aid in curing sex addictions.

This is where the cynic in me comes out...

You set up a website where the content is provided by others, viewers, surfers.
You then get a book contract and spend a week generating text content. The little people can get the photos in exchange for credits and copies of the book.

That is Thisiswhyyourefat website and book.

Good scam. A bit like a readers wives magazine.

I can't see why anyone feels the need to take a burger, then deep fry it. It was going to kill you withOUT the deep fried part anyway!

The Widowmaker amuses me -- pounds of beef, bacon, sausages, hot pockets, cheese, two pizzas, etc., but only 1/2 a package of fried onion strings.

Because a whole package would be over the top.
