Giants in Tiny Cars

Why is it that the tiniest cars are driven by fat people?

I’m not talking about slightly overweight. I’m talking about gut-pressing-against-the-steering-wheel large.

When I spot a thimble-sized car: a Smart car, compact truck, or Fiat I make a quick bet with myself that the driver is overweight… and I usually win.

Before you analyze my observations, I admit an abundance of overweight people around here. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because we have so many restaurants, or because I live in the south where there’s fried chicken and shrimp-and-grits.

I’d try to snap a few photos to prove it, but texting while driving is illegal here. How would I explain?

“Officer I wasn’t texting, I was simply taking photos of that hottie overweight woman driving the Prius.”

I can’t risk it. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
