running around the world

I thought this was funny, and sad.

It's cute - stereotypes can be funny, if taken tongue in cheek and not meaning to insult. The fact that they're stereotypes at all indicates either A) there's some truth involved, and/or B) the perception of the masses out there is that there's some truth involved.

So what does this say about Americans? We're depicted as chasing a gigantic cheeseburger, and our stick-figures are fatter than everybody else's.

Come on, guys.  Moderate. Cut portion sizes. Slow down the excesses.

I'm tired of the fat country stereotype.
