But everything’s bigger in Texas

Men’s Fitness magazine has once again named Houston the fattest city in the United States. Third times the charm, folks.

Some quotes from a Houston Chronicle article:

“It’s pretty interesting that everybody likes to hate on Houston,” said Councilwoman Ada Edwards. “Because we have such a great city and such great restaurants. They’re just jealous.”

“It’s calculated with voodoo and fraud,” said Mayor White.

Boogah boogah. Anyone for a cheeseburger?

    Does anyone dispute this? Can you think of a fatter city or one more un-conducive to exercise? The weather we can’t control but the ozone levels, lack of bike paths, and indoor exercise facilities are some things we can control.

    I just blogged about this–how about turning the Astrodome into an indoor facility for Houstonians? Take out the seats, add some climbing walls and a running track, astroturf ski slope and some multi-purpose fields. Now THAT would be cool.

    Is that our only retort–“You’re just jealous”? Of what, our fat asses?

    I live in New Orleans and I can’t begin to see how Houston is fatter than us. Our restaurants are great, and the only city less conducive to exercise than Houston would be here.
