Wal-Mart Singles Out Romantic Fat Bastards

Wal-Mart compiled a list of the Most and Least Romantic States. The rankings were based on sales of chocolate, diamonds, and roses. (Nothing says "I'll love you forever" like Wal-Mart diamonds.) The "Top 10 Romantic Chocolate States" is strikingly similar to the "Top 10 Obese States" list. Which means the residents of said states aren't more romantic, just more likely to need really big pants.

There always the jewelry boat at Target. I think if there is a hell it probably looks just like Wal-Mart.
