Damn, you girls are fat!

So there's this new CDC study out today that compares the average height and weight of Americans in 1960 to those in 2002.

Of course, Americans are much fatter and only a little taller now. But here's the stat that really floored me:

The average American woman is 5'4" and weighs 164 pounds.

Damn! Since when did Star Jones become the standard-issue American woman?

I know you ladies all weigh more than it looks like you do. And 164 pounds isn't really "big" if you're like 5'7" or taller. What matters is how you carry the weight, not the number of pounds you're displacing. And constantly seeing models who are 5'10" and weigh 125 pounds makes you all think you're fat.

But 5'4", 164 is the average? That's wild.

[editor's note: Cap'n Ken does not actually think you girls are fat. The sensational headline on this piece is intended solely to sell more papers.]
