Ha! As many of you know and for those who don’t… LISTEN UP! I am a Kung-Fu master. I am in top physical form and will continue to be for all eternity so I have a special disdain for the Morbidly Obese. Apparently the architect for Weight Watchers must have been either on AoSHq or on a ValuRite drinking binge when he came up with the wise idea to put the Weight Watchers clinic in Växjö, in south-central Sweden… ON THE SECOND FLOOR! Why was it a mistake? I think the headline says it all…
Weight Watchers clinic floor collapses under dieters.
Heh… Very Funneh! You can laugh… go ahead… I’ll wait…
The floor of a Weight Watchers clinic in Sweden collapsed beneath a group of 20 members of the weight loss programme who were gathered for a meeting.
As the dieters queued to see how many pounds they had shed, the floor beneath them in the clinic in Växjö, in south-central Sweden, began to rumble, according to a report in The Local, Sweden’s English-language newspaper.
“We suddenly heard a huge thud; we almost thought it was an earthquake and everything flew up in the air.
“The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls,” one Weight Watchers participant told the Smålandsposten newspaper.
Soon, the fault lines spread around the room, and other sections of the floor gave way. Engineers are blaming Chinese steel girders and Hostess Cupcakes, but mostly Hostess Cupcakes.
(I added that last part… thanks AoSHQ for the template.)
Luckily, all of the dieters escaped uninjured and managed to move the scales to the corridor, which was not damaged in the accident, and were able to complete their weekly weigh in.
The cause of the floor’s collapse remains under investigation.
