Description

The world's lone superpower...supreme guardian of democracy...and home of the blithely uninformed and epidemically obese. Welcome to America -- pull up a chair, click on the tube, and grab a donut. Concerned Citizen Peter Strupp is shocked and bothered by what he sees. It seems we're not as thin, smart, and good-looking as we like to think. Packed with real facts and statistics, Fat, Dumb, and Ugly takes readers on an eye-opening, laugh-out-loud, and at times horrifying tour of the numbers that shape our country:Ã Percentage of adults in the United States who are overweight: 64.5Ã Percentage of Americans who believe they have actually spoken with Satan: 5Ã Percentage of voters for whom Saturday Night Live and MTV are primary sources of information about presidential candidates: 16Ã Average number of pink lawn flamingos sold annually in America: 250,000A wickedly hilarious and addictive cultural snapshot of our nation of conspicuous consumers, fast-food fanatics, and dumbed-down dolts, Fat, Dumb, and Ugly casts a revealing spotlight on John Q. Public, the average American -- and it's not always pretty.
