Too Many Freedom Fries

It seems the French are inhaling too many Royales with cheese. The French are getting fat. And the not the kind of fat like "Baby your butt doesn't look fat in those jeans," but the kind of fat that makes your jeans button turn into a missile harmful to small children because it can't contain the pudge any longer.
While adult obesity is rising about 6 percent annually, among children the national rate of growth is 17 percent. At that rate, the French could be - quelle horreur - as fat as Americans by 2020. (More than 65 percent of the population in the United States is considered overweight or obese.)
Ah,you see, no matter how much each country loves to hate each other, we're just so damn alike.

Now put down the fries and give us a French kiss. You know you want to.
