The Biggest Losers

September 11, 2007 at 8:31 pm (Television)

Are the contestants on The Biggest Loser.  Actually, it is probably the person who watches The Biggest Loser, which tonight at least, includes me.  It’s the season premiere, so we get all the dramatic tear-jerking backstories, and the shirtless guys who are shocked, shocked! that they weigh 367 lbs.  “I never put myself an ounce over 350, I swear!”

Ok, this is admittedly a little harsh.  Good for those people, who clearly have no shame.  I definitely think people should lose weight if they want to; I can sympathize, having been quite fat myself a few years ago.  But my goodness, if there is a surer sign that our civilization is going the way of Rome, a bunch of fat asses sitting on the couch, watching a TV show about fat people trying to lose weight, I don’t know what it is.
