“Obese U.S. tourists blamed for broken chairs


LONDON, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- The French supplier of chairs to the Queen Mary II, the world's most luxurious cruise ship, is replacing seats because of obese passengers.

"There are some things that need to be changed or replaced -- for instance, there are some problems with the chairs because some of our passengers are heavier than we imagined," a spokesman for Alstom Chantiers told the Sunday Telegraph.

"It's not an English problem; it's probably more American," he added”

So what do you think is going on?


Remember all the old portraits and paintings;

recruits because of medical reasons associated with
malnutrition.
