News Briefs Volume XVII

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1:  Finally some decent news for those of us men on the higher end of the weight scale.  We cannot really wear tight Lycra bike shorts, Speedo swim briefs (no one except for competitive swimmers should anyway), or vertical stripes, but it seems that heavier men actually have heavier paychecks than their skinnier counterpartsOf course the thinner guys get more women since they don’t care about how much a man makes.  The news is not so good for women whose paychecks are inversely proportional to their weight.

Fat, Drunk, and Stupid

The actual quote from Animal House’s Dean Vernon Wormer is; “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”  The inspiration for this post was the unusual “couple” that staked an area of lawn near my wife and I when we recently attended a John Mayer/Train concert.  I put couple in quotes as they were actually a trio that as near as we could surmise was a mother, daughter and the daughter’s beau.
