What a hoot! Thank you for posting this. I'm heartened to see someone injecting a theraputic dose of satire into our obesity epidemic.

Living in DC this past election season, I began to study how events were covered and explored via satire and I found places like The Onion, etc, had better coverage than "traditional" news. I wanted to take a satire-writing class in college, but it was always offered during my chem labs.

Damn, I'd have loved to have watched this video but there's a big notice on it that states "video not available in your country"... Oh well, we're only a little island...

Read 'The Obesity Epidemic: Science, Morality and Ideology' by Michael Gard and Jan Wright. It's not humour, but it's a refreshing read... I did some work with Michael Gard. He's a top guy.

How obnoxious to schedule satire writing class to conflict with chemistry labs!

I agree with you on sometimes finding better coverage via The Onion, etc. And I have to admit that if we miss the evening news we sometimes make a point to watch the Colbert Report to catch up.

Don't tell anybody.

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
