    I loved living down south. Women knew how to eat, most had a few extra healthy pounds on them, and the men made me look downright fit. Never change, you backwards bastards

    I've made a big decision today, and those of you who know me know exactly how big it is: I am never wearing cargo shorts again.

    But how are you going to smuggle all of those sweet American products back to the great white north?

    What about fucked up footgear and purple shirts with white flowers on them? You giving those up, too?

    So much going on here:

    — someone throws a shoe
    — Garth Hudson of the Band is alive and has a daughter playing softball.
    — no one grabbed a bat? Amateurs.

    It's all for laughs, until you see the daughters trying to pull their dumbass parents out of the brawl.

    (Also, too, lack of walkable cities is a reason for obesity in the South. Folks in NYC or DC think nothing of walking 25-30 minutes to run an errand. Down here the infrastructure for walkability is so bad you often can't even if you want to.)

    Stop. There's no walkability in 95% of California, and we aren't that fat.

    Can't they walk the dog?

    I should have said part of the reason. Mix in diet (fried stuff! sweet tea!), stifling heat and humidity plus few outdoor recreational opportunities (until lately) and it all adds up. It's not simply laziness on the part of Southerners.
