How Dumb Do They Think We Are?

This is something every patriotic American should be marching in the streets against:

Mexico looks to US to find future Olympians

Mexican sports officials are searching for potential Olympic athletes in the United States with family links to Mexico who might eventually compete for the Latin American country.

Mexico's sports minister Bernardo De la Garza said Wednesday that the first step in the identification process would be the so-called Mexican Games being held in Los Angeles in March. Competitions will be held in 12 Olympic disciplines and will be open to Mexicans, Mexican-Americans and Mexican-Canadians.

Don't think we don't know what's going on here, amigos. The only Mexican-Americans who would be interested in this are the ones that couldn't make the US team, meaning they're unlikely to rain Olympic medals down on their ancestral homeland. But of course this isn't about the Olympics, is it? No, it's about rendering Mexico's own athletic system superfluous. Role models? Who needs 'em? Athletic aspiration will become a thing of the past, as will serious training - eventually, fitness and exercise will be all but unheard of.

And then, with all the nation's serious athletes living and training in the US, the Mexican people will achieve their true dream: being the fattest nation on Earth.

Wake up, America!

It is true that many Mexicans are overweighted, but you never see there the whales you see in Miami, or some places in Texas. You never see those down there....

No, I generally write in the nude, unless Axe Body Spray counts as clothing.

C'mon. The U.S. has done the same thing over an over. Just remember the great Romanian swimmer Johnny Weissmuller, who was actually born in Romania. He won medals for the U.S. He's buried in Acapulco, BTW. No seas burro!

You never see this in Mexico, and if you see them, they are American tourists: http://breskiblogs.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/obese-women_992046c.jpg

the fattest man in the world is Mexican (or was, cause he lost wight), but that's a special case.

Precisely my point. We let other people do our exercise for us, and before you knew it we were the Fattest Nation on Earth.

Now those sneaky Mexicans are trying steal our title in exactly the same way! WAKE UP, GRINGOS! THESE COLORS DON'T RUN...THEY WADDLE!

Yes, Anonymous, that was a special case. Obese Mexicans are exceedingly rare and hard to
find.
