why americans are such fat asses

the answer to an age-old riddle--because they get lazy as kids. the pic above, case-in-point. this vivacious, physically capable young girl, no older than 9, no younger than 8, PULLING her very school supplies behind her, burning, say, 1/3 of the calories than say, a conventional backpack would expend.
what ever happened to the monogrammed l.l. bean backpacks that all the nerds had? or the oversized-zipper kiplings the cool kids sported? that was before the age of obesity, i suppose.
why do kids need to pull their books?
i guess we should ask joe-six-pack soccer mom, sarah palin. start widening the doorways of the whitehouse, kids.

i'm out.

It's preparing them for the corporate world where those pull behind packs are rampant ;)

At least she is walking, she could be on the school bus being transported from home to school and vice versa.

Wonder if there's a super-zide happy meal in that bag?
