We were watching a couple of TV shows last night when it got to be time for the evening news. But, for some reason neither my wife nor I switched the channel. Then we noticed a show that we had never watched before. It was called “The United Stats of America”. I was busy checking blogs, comments, and emails and was only half paying attention, but what did sink in was interesting. They were talking about the heights and weights of Americans compared to the rest of the world over the two hundred plus years that the USA existed. Seems that during the Revolutionary War we were the tallest of any nation in the world. That distinction was held for quite a few years but it is not so any more. Our average height has dropped and is dropping. But now, we are on the top of the top ten fattest countries. What we lost in height we put on in girth. I guess if you can’t have one might as well have the other. Both of these extremes are the result of diet but will now bore you with details.
Did you know who was the fattest president? This president was 330 pounds and one time got stuck in the White House bath tub. It took six men to pull put on in girth. I guess if you can’t have one might as well have the other. Both of these extremes are the result of diet but will now bore you with details.him out. And guess what? They immediately installed a much larger bathtub; one that at least four men could fit into. That solved the problem of the president getting stuck. Oh yes, It was the 27th president, William Taft who was so fat. Now, I know you couldn’t get through the day or your next meal without that information. You all have a great day today and don’t eat too much, you hear?
