We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

This is funny but isn't

As a Weight Watchers group gathered for a routine weigh-in, the dieters got an idea of how far they still had to go: The floor underneath them collapsed, a Swedish newspaper reports.

"We suddenly heard a huge thud; we almost thought it was an earthquake and everything flew up in the air," one of about 20 group members said to the Smalandsposten newspaper. "The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls."

After the initial collapse on Wednesday evening, the floor started to cave in other parts of the room, and the stench of sewage crept into the clinic, which is in Vaxjo, a city in south central Sweden. The group is looking for an alternate location for future meetings, Weight Watchers consultant Therese Levin told the Swedish paper.

No one was injured, and the cause of the collapse is still under investigation.

Afterward, the participants moved the scales to a hallway to have a real weigh-in. That time, the floor held."

What cracks me up is; they still held the 'official weigh ins.'   Reminds me of the stringent way of the military.  Come HELL OR HIGH WATER you will be fit.  Watch out Jenny Craig; Weight Watchers is serious.

That IS funny but isn't. I guess it's not just the American people who are putting on the pounds. Blame that clown, Ronald.

Ronny is dead and has been since 2005 so, the weight gain is not all his fault.
