What’s worse, obesity, smoking, or starvation?

Americans used to smoke more. Americans used to be slimmer. Americans now smoke less and are fatter. Correlation or causation?

When the economy was humming along, more people worried about global warming climate change. Now, in addition to having little credible science to support it, there’s also little appetite (so to speak) for the corrective action to global warming climate change, that is, growth-starving economic suicide.

So maybe we can somehow use our non-appetite for global warming’s climate change’s corrective actions as an anti-obesity tool?

Today, movies earn a PG-13 rating for smoking. Tomorrow, perhaps the actor consuming a 32 ounce Slurpee will drive such parental alarms.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
