Memphis Ranked no 6. in US Fattest cities

Recommended Posts

I find these surveys amusing rather than factual.

The poster is priceless. Thanks sleepy.

You're welcome.

I've got it framed in my living room. Stoic and fitness conscious Minnesotans don't know what to make of it. :P

This ranking is a joke. It rates cities on such things as how many fast food restaurants that a city has. Baltimore ranked low because it doesn't have many fast food restaurants per person in the city. They have just as many or more, they're just outside the city limits. Now if it were done on how much fried food.....
