What do you call a man with no arms and no legs who is swimming?

I appreciate what they're trying to do, but sometimes they take it a bit farther than they need to. And by that I mean that I could've done without the subway ads showing the human fat and/or internal organs that were everywhere a few months back.

You gotta really work at it to be a super fat ass in NYC, you have to walk everywhere.

FTA: "Portion control is indeed an important piece of the solution to obesity," said Stefan Friedman, a spokesman for the association. "But instead of utilizing scare tactics, the beverage industry is offering real solutions like smaller portioned containers and calorie labels that show the number of calories in the full container, right up front, to help people choose products and sizes that are right for them and their families."

Oh, Stefan, you are so full of shiat I think your ass has been sewn shut.

That's just because you haven't tried it. If they didn't tell you what was in it, you'd think it was the best pork sandwich you've ever had.

Remember, try everything before you judge!

Actually, they have been. You haven't seen the return of the 6-8oz cans?

They still offer the BIGASSHUGE sizes as well, but they've also brought out smaller portions as well.

There does come a point where personal responsibility has to come into play. Nobody is forced to drink a Big Gulp three times per day. People choose to buy large quantities of crap, knowing full-well that it's crap.

"Simulpost" generally refers to two posts that have nearly identical timestamps. Which in this case would have been INCREDIBLE, and I would have demanded you and metallion be married posthaste.

My wife, to torment me, often likes to go "Robble Robble Robble" during relations...I have to run from the room and curl in a fetal position, crying and wishing the whole thing would just go away...then she comes in the room wearing a Birdie the Early Bird mask and I just wail openly to any God that will listen to me!
