Okay, it’s going to be a short, but emotionally charged, week in current events. In response, I thought I’d start light to get us all off right. Plus, most of us overate yesterday on Labor Day and I thought you might like what I found.
There is a new study that reveals that chubby people live longer than skinny people. What? That’s right! Here is a brief excerpt:
“Heath experts have long warned of the risk of obesity, but a new Japanese study warns that being very skinny is even more dangerous, and that slightly chubby people live longer.”
You can read the rest here. It goes on to say that the group that did best in the study had a BMI between 25-30. YES! I’m right there.
As much as I’ve told this to my wife to justify my affinity for ribs, chicken wings, and bacon, she’s not buying it.
There is concern by the Church of England over the lack of men attending church, which has lead to a new strategy. In order to attract men, they decided to give free beer, bacon, and chocolate bars for any men that attended. This article says that:
“Men at St Stephen’s church in Barbourne, Worcester, will be handed bottles of
beer by children during the service. A prayer will be said for the
fathers before the gifts are distributed.“
Obviously, this has upset some people, like those struggling with substance abuse. But church leaders say it is supposed to represent “the generosity of God.”
There was a time when this would have really made me mad. Would I do it? No way. Am I really offended? Not really. Is it a bad idea. Probably. But I also think it is hilarious and I admire their courage. I know plenty of guys who would probably go to church for a free beer.
But let’s be honest, if they really wanted to get men into church and wanted to truly push the envelope, then they should have added ladies mud wrestling!
