we're all chubs

(D-Listed stole the obvious headline, "It's A Fat World After All.")

Disneyland in California has shut down the "Small World" ride for a few months to refit it so us big fat types can fit on it. Seems that Homo Disneylandus is bigger now than in 1960 - the average man weighs 191 pounds, 15% more (166 pounds); women are up from 140 to 164 pounds over the same period. So the boat rides are literally scraping the bottom and it isn't because of a build-up of fiberglass layers as Disney diplomatically claims.

Mmm, think I'll get me another triple burger and a milkshake.
