Kimo's world  #45

Obesity gone wild, Happy Thanksgiving!‏

Once a week I make my weekly sojourn to Costco to purchase a Rotisserie chicken. My dog and myself eat off it all week long.

The chickens are fully cooked and are the size of a small turkey.  Cost is only $4.99! That is a deal anywhere especially on the overpriced island of Kaua'i where a raw chicken alone  can cost you double, even triple that. For me and many families every week is Thanksgiving.

I do not go out much. I am like the little old lady who only drives to church on Sunday. I am the old guy that just drives to Costco once a week. I am also an avid people watcher and have noticed an obesity epidemic . I am 20 lbs over weight myself, yet feel like slim Jim (Kimo)compared to the masses when out shopping.

America has gotten so fat, even the homeless are fat. Look at the free soup kitchens, the people dishing out the food are  slimmer than the house-less people.

Thanksgiving has become a holiday  that is no longer needed. People eat like gluttons all year.

You've heard of "girls gone wild," Thanksgiving has become the holiday of "Obesity gone wild."

So on Thanksgiving everyone lift up your shirts and show that pot belly that America has so proudly produced!

How about making Thanksgiving a day of  fresh salads, fresh fruits and Tofu! At least you may stay alive another year to be Thankful!
On second thought,someone, please pass the gravy!

Happy Turkey day!
