    This is a great idea, American ingenuity at its best. I just wish I had thought of it first.

    Why "America"? Can`t we just say "This is why you`re fat"?

    It saves space. And time. And is double-blind proven to induce sexual enhancement.

    I love junk food.
    I eat it regularly!
    The greasier the better.
    I drive way to fast to worry about cholesterol levels anyway.

    And I am not fat. 5`11" 175 lbs.
    The only thing on me that`s supersized is my ego and my wabbly bits.

    "This is why you`re fat America" Was funny the first time it was used, it was even slightly funny the second time. Constant use has worn out it`s welcome, however. There are several countries just as fat or even fatter than America so I don`t see why our obesity rate is the focus of everyone`s attention. The majority of countries with easy access to fast food and unhealthy choices has a high obesity rate.

    Amusing in a thread in which only 1 person didn`t realise it`s fake and that person is from the USA.

    Onion news is good comedy.

    @Madest

    Is it cozy living there in your little bubble of isolation? If you weren`t such an ignorant pod person you might realize that statistically it`s the nations "poorest" who suffer from obesity. It`s too often the unregulated use of food stamps which allows those lazy heifers to balloon up to such repugnant proportions.
    So the next time you pay your taxes remember what a large portion of it, is going directly into the pockets of the friendly people at the "moon-pie" corporation.

    Oh, and just for the record "madest" just because your mom weened you on government beans and day old bread and you turned out "OK" doesn`t mean that the rest of the populous is as thrifty and conscious about where their charity comes from.

    "Holy cow that is at least 3 years old now"

    Yeah.... It`s also, a repost. It was posted on I-A-B the day after this story came out, slightly before everyone knew ONN was fake, which is before many news agencies reported ONN stories as fact.

    @Angillion

    I felt the need to get it out there because of the massive flame hate for American waste lines eminating from yourside of the pond. I am not going to bother giving direct examples, IAB is littered with it and it typically comes from Europe. I will give credit, this is one example where it finally didn`t happen.

    Same here. Waiting for Gatorade irrigation.
