Health Nazis Strike Again
The Health Nazis are hard at it again. It seems that they are now worried about teenage girls and eating disorders. They want cheerleaders to start covering their midriffs...and I thought there was an obesity epidemic going around...***
Australian cheerleaders have been banned from baring midriffs by officials of the sport who fear displays of skin may encourage eating disorders.
Yeah right. Because we all know that teenage girls get ALL their standards of beauty from what the latest cheerleading outfit looks like. All the waifs on EVERY TV show and in EVERY magazine have nothing in the world to do with what they perceive as beautiful.
I wonder how long until we see our first lawsuit against Seventeen or Cosmo for causing some poor kids eating disorder? Hey, don't laugh. 10 years ago people laughed at the idea of suing McDonalds.
In a related story: An All Points Bulletin has been issued for WunderKraut for aiding the spread of the obesity epidemic. If you see this man:
Please tell him to put his shirt back on because the sight of his whale like body may cause other men to go out and value-size their next McDonalds order, thereby directly leading to their deaths from obesity. Plus he is scaring the kids.
*** Yes I know eating disorders are a serious thing that many girls/women/boys/men go through, but come on...
WunderKraut is morbidly obese at WunderKraut.com

Next we'll be suing people for being so beautiful they make some people upset. Right now I'm going out to retain a lawyer to defend me from what I'm sure will be thousands of suits against me. Jennifer Aniston's gonna be in SERIOUS trouble.

Wunderkraut, Is that you? Why would they call it "morbid obesity"? The word Morbid doesn't jive with what I am seeing in that picture. Don't you have to be reeeeeeally huge?...
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at April 16, 2006 07:09 PM
245 lbs and I am 5'-10".
My BMI shows me as obese. But I believe my health screening at work added the morbid part.
Posted by: WunderKraut at April 16, 2006 07:51 PM
Makes me wonder if there is a real "epidemic" or if they just changed the rules.

You play the guitar? How cool is that... The next thing you will be telling us is you can sing.

Do you suppose the mullet made you thin?

I don't think that a single photo of you will cause a man to go out and get a nice, juicy sandwich. I, for example, have no such desire. I mean, sure, my BMI shows me to be 'Borderline' (providing you supply a LARGE border...) and I've seen the photo of you here on Willisms. There. I just looked at the photos of you on YOUR site, and the idea of a Hoagie roll, mayo, mustard...
DAMN YOU WonderKraut!!

President Bush and most professional athletes are all considered overweight according to the BMI, as far as a I know. Needs serious revision, that index does.

At 6'3" and 265, when I was swimming 2 miles a day and playing water polo daily and had 4% body fat. Of course the BMI said I was going to keel over any minute.

Can't help but notice that the morbidly obese WonderKraut is smiling while the earlier version is not. I think I'll have that cheesecake now.
Posted by: Laxpat at April 17, 2006 05:05 PM
Thanks Laxpat. Actually, I was not smiling because I was going through my angry teenage years. But then again...I am much happier now...plus I weigh 60 pounds more...maybe added fat does = happieness.
Posted by: WunderKraut at April 17, 2006 07:31 PM
That could explain why I've been in such a good mood all day.

Kirk Vonnegut wrote a short story in the 70s about this: In Welcome to the Monkey house: Harrison Burgeron. All people were made to carry around weights, sort of like handicapped horses described in Seabiscuit. Other people had to have handicapping implants in their brains to prevent anyone from being smarter than anyone else. What garbage !!! Back to Reubens?
