Taking the Weight Out of Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers changed its name to WW. Can't offend the body positive lobby.  Needless to say, Bill Maher had fun with it Friday night.

this is all because Oprah bought Weight Watchers and wants to make a psychological organization and not a health and fitness organization;

A physician told me that the ICUs usually have more than their share of morbidly obese patients. Go to Wal-Mart and look at who are in scooters buying junk food.

While I rarely agree with Maher, on this subject, he is 100% correct.

I was laughing my head off until he got to the dick part. Then I started to cry.

2:28 PM Prepare for the drugs, upbringing, & not my fault replies.

I'm referring to the The Commish Speaks on Veggie Burger Law tread.

Look at old photos from the 1800s through the 1950s. You won't see morbidly black or white folk (no Patels or El Domingos either). No four hundred pounders buying Little Debbie's from Wall-Mark scooters.

Yes!!! Someone finally said out loud what a lot of us (who eat healthy food and exercise daily) think when we grocery shop or, ehhh, go anywhere today...and, while we're at it...I resent having to pay the medical bills for the "600-pound-lifers" walking/scooting around in the world. AND, we (taxpayers) are footing the bill (EBT, etc.) for those carts full of junk food and soft drinks...the insanity of it all.

A good start would be exercising some discipline, for heaven's (and their own) sake. Google "Oprah's 2020 Vision Tour with WW." (Remember, she owns about 8% of WW shares.) Oh yeah, when Kentucky Fried Chicken changed their branding to KFC...little did we know that was the beginning of this "soft on fat" ideology.

Correct, @6:36...let's get ready for snippets from the "Excuses for My Obesity: A Guide to Loving Every Inch of Me" playbook...but, right now, it's time to hit the gym.

There is a correlation between HFCS and obesity. A study from 2004 notices the trend (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/79/4/537/4690128). And a study in 2010 highlights characteristics of obesity in lab rats (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3522469/).

However it is still controversial to link HFCS as the cause of obesity (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3679479/), though I do suspect it at lesat plays a part (opinion). I think a lot of the problem is that we as a society have become even more sedentary in the past 30 to 40 years.

Wonder if this new change will be reflected in the appropriation bills next session?

A stupid man. Looks at 1969 photo, and says, why, folks are "healthy," "they are thin." Bill, 45% of Americans were smoking then. That would be 1.5 million dead a year from that alone, even with today's advanced medicine, at a similar rate of cancer today, with our population. Compare that to 300,000 from obesity. That's right, 1,000,000 more dead from smoking, but we helped that, to a degree, over a long period of time.

Car deaths 1969? Twice the rate. SMH. And, of course, it's hilarious that he was driving drunk, right? 60% of traffic deaths back then were from booze. To his credit, he acknowledges his alcohol addiction, but food addicts are irresponsible. The same old hypocrite he always is.

And, Bill, there weren't any of those disgusting disabled in the pic either right? Cuz they couldn't get there or died early.

The master of the obvious struggling for relevance, and selling "The Good Ole Days" myths. While advocating for 55,000,000 abortions, legalized dope, and paper straws. Stupid people, clapping for a clown.

I resent having to pay SSI for drunks and dopers, but all we saw yesterday was beer ads and drunks watching idiots slam heads together. Stupid people.

What is the date for the recipe to be posted for Kingfish's favorite alcohol concoction? I sure don't want to miss it.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
