Oprah's weight and Obama's foodorama - by Chuck Norris

Chuck's words of wisdom: Don't ever quit striving to better yourself each and every year. Don't ever stop growing. Develop yourself to the maximum of your potential in all ways. Or as Benjamin Franklin put it, "Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man." So, don't ever stop trying. Yes, I went to extremes to write such a great synopsis of the Chuck Norris story when I submitted it to this morning (see above). There was a whole lot of information to try to condense into 350 characters. Well, that digg story description just does not do his great column any justice. I know that Chuck went all-out in putting this one together, on the Christmas holiday weekend, no less! So, my job here is to provide you with a reason to read his great piece today. He obviously did a lot of research based on the number of links that he provides in this story. His humorous wit rose higher than any leg kick he could ever do. So, before my gushing causes any further man-made global warming, let me bring you a little bit of his writing:
According to a new USA Today/Gallup Poll, Obama is the man Americans admire most. And that fixation has focused recently upon his fitness, which some say contributed even to his victory in the election. Men's Fitness even deemed him twice (in 2005 and 2008) among the 25 fittest men in America." Many present Obama's diet as one more reason why he should be our nation's supreme leader, for, they say, even it points to his rags to regal road to the White House (In "Dreams from My Father, " Obama tells the story how he ate grasshopper, dog and snake while living in Indonesia as a child). Those who doubt Obama's pro-organic positions are referred to an array of nutritional news stories, blogs, photos and video streams of him eating, golfing, playing basketball, working out at the gym, etc. Last week one of the largest Internet searches was sneaking a peak of the hearty and shirtless president-elect on the beach at his $9 million dollar Hawaiian holiday getaway. There's even a website committed to every possible link between food, drinks and Obama – Obamafoodorama, including Barack's favorite trail mix and his beer of choice, the "audacity of hops."

  1. Awesome column by Chuck! I just read his book, "Black Belt Patriotism" and was shocked how well written and researched it was. Check out his dozens of 5-star reviews at Amazon...
