Oh, Time magazine, the interesting questions you pose. Why are Southerners so fat? The usual answers are trotted out (poverty, lack of access to healthier foodstuffs, traditional dishes) but nowhere in the article is the obvious retort: Because Southern food is freakin' delicious.

You gotta wonder what the response would be if, say, The Oxford American ran a huge photo of a Bostonian flipping the bird with the headline "Why Are Northerners So Rude?".
