Critical Mass America (tm)
« on: September 12, 2012, 08:00:02 pm »
How do you know you're in Critical Mass America? When something happens that's soooo American, that the laws of reality become distorted.

Exhibit A:

Take a sugary snack. Combine it with another sugary snack. Then release it to coincide with a Hallmark holiday that's aimed at largely at children during a healthcare crisis of jeuvenile obesity.

Exhibit B:

Egyptian immigrant comes to America to find opportunity....the opportunity to look like Popeye.

apart from the size, their proportion to the rest of his body makes me dubious that he doesn't have some goofy implants or injections...

It's every immigrant's dream. Leave the oppression of the 'old country' and move to Massachussetts to work in a gas station so that you have a shot at a world record.
What makes it so? Making it so is what makes it so.
