Obesity in America

Stop the celebration. Here in the desert, local television news is reported by a bevy of obese women. Clothes are now modeled by obese woman, and obesity has somehow become cool in the entertainment industry. Please. Do the world a favor. If you can't fit into a size 6 or less, wear a burka. Thank you for your support.

"...obesity has somehow become cool in the entertainment industry."

You can blame Adele for that. She's so fat, she fell down and rocked herself to sleep trying to get up!

Hold the train. What are you doing living in the desert?

Way too many Americans are flocking to where it's "warm" and then they have to use up fossil fuels in a criminally irresponsible way just to run their stupid air conditioners 11 months a year. And it's apparently essential that every desert dweller needs to have a green lawn which must be watered so much that the rivers and aquifers are sucked completely dry.

If your want to live in the desert, move to Saudi Arabia.

Eating tarantulas and scorpions, flossing with rattlesnakes, and wiping my ass with cactus stems.

Oh, and working as a field botanist, studying monocots and cacti (not the ones I'm wiping my ass with).
