    Default It is not only fat americans

    Sweden has their own share of overweight people but no one expected this. There was a Weight Watchers weigh in Sweden which resulted in the floor collapsing under them! I guess America knows to overengineer our buildings because of our problems with 'people of size'.

    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.

    This post also has an uncanny suitability with your username and avatar, nbcman. How do you do it?

    I hope you mean the chemical odors as opposed to comparing me to the denizens of the room in question

    Maybe they should hold the next one outside. What could happen? A sinkhole open up? The Earth's orbit suddenly change? Okay, enough fat jokes from me.

    My bad

    Yes, that's what I meant - I never intended to suggest anything about your weight.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    The tallest more was more rubenesque than the rest, and she definitely wasn't taking 'roids and working out...
