But no one LIVES in your state except you and Tim. How can the rates be accurate based on TWO people?

I think its funny, the Providence is one of the heaviest drinking cities, and Rhode Island is one of the thinnest states. Where are all the 'beer' bellies? I guess everyone drinks hard liquor?

JJ said...

I live in Philly and I thought for sure my state would be one of the fattest. All these cheesesteaks and hoagies and pizza slices and beers...

Jen said...

Zed- BWAHAHahahHAhA!

Sushiboy- hard liquor all the way!

JJ- maybe you ranked #6
I couldn't find the entire list for some reason..only gives top 5
I'll keep looking

Think about how those figures would change if they counted Peter Griffin though.

I'm sort of surprised Vermont's on the "No Fat" side. I've seen quite a few big honkin' rednecks when I visited...

Corey said...

dick's sentence should've ended with my state: Kentucky.

Dick Small said...

Never been to Kentucky. Sorry. But I'll take your word for it.

jj, philly started to lose weight a few years ago because they were considered THE fattest city in the US at the time.

i guess we've all cut down on the tastykake's and cheesesteaks...

yummmmmy, cheesesteaks....I think I'll have one for lunch tomorrow, thanks for the idea.

Doctor Mom said...

Well... that's about par for the course... Minnesota can't get anything right...


We can't be the drunkest, the fattest, or the skinniest. What the heck are we?

Oh yeah, Cul-de-Sac!

JJ said...

Hi Teri,

Nice profile pic!

I guess Philly could still be one of the fatest cities. Maybe rural Pennsylvania folks are just that much skinnier.

Ritardo said...

we were the fattest city 2 years running not long ago. we eat anything breaded and deep fried with bacon wraps in Houston.

Neil said...
