Living with kids makes you fat--DUH

From the "I can't believe someone paid good money to fund this study" category comes a report this week that researchers at the Universities of Iowa and Michigan have determined that adults who live with kids eat more fat than adults who don't.

Wow. I never would have guessed.

Apparently the researchers don't have kids, because if they did, they'd have been too busy snarfing down pizza, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, grilled cheese, cookies, and ice cream to roll themselves away from the table long enough to count up the fat grams. And all that doesn't even include the Halloween chocolate.

Though to be fair, adults living with teenagers might be losing weight (unless they have locks on the refrigerator and cupboards). THESE adults might be heard yelling things like: "What happened to the seven bags of potato chips I bought on Tuesday?" and "Don't tell me you ate all three gallons of ice cream ALREADY!"

So if your kids are little and you've put on a few pounds, don't worry too much. In a few years they'll be eating you out of house and home!

Until next Friday...
