image for America - The fattest nation?
This guy rolled to the bus stop

You know I always thought American's were one of the laziest and fattest nations there was but I was slightly disturbed to find out that the average American walks as little as "75 miles a year" that's 1.4 miles a week, barely 350 yards a day!

That is an appallingly low amount. You would think that an American would walk at least 5 miles a day walking to the fridge and back.

85% Americans are mostly sedentary with 35% being completely sedentary. How does that 35% even live?

Do their friggin televisions, computers and sofas do everything for them? Jesus even a snail on ecstasy could do more mileage in a year!

Make Emma Bryant's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
