    I wonder what the equation of that duckcumrabbit is.

    x^2.4 + x^1.2*y^x + y^(8-e) + 1 = z^5

    maybe.

    All ducks are rabbits, and rabbits, ducks. They're just really good at staying in character.

    So, no matter where you go, according to that graph, between one in five and one in three Americans are (presumably clinically) obese? That is, sixty million Americans (and more besides) are not just fat, but actually obese??

    Its no accident that that graph exactly morphs the spread of high fructose corn syrup.

    Also, I can see the duck in the states but n o t the rabbit. That graph is therefore racist.

    They'll just change the definition of obese to make the situation seem less dire.

    We don't know about the territories like Guam, Puerto Rico, or Samoa.

    100 million people in the United States are obese? That's even worse than the chart suggested!

    What is it about Japan? Only 24% are overweight and a mere 3% are obese.

    It's all diet based. Americans actually get more physical activity than Japanese, but we get over 50% of our calories from processed foods.

    From what I've heard, Japanese food isn't particularly conductive to becoming fat
