Now we can add "slothful" to that sterling description, thanks to Bloomberg Businessweek's America's Laziest States list that puts Louisiana right on top. Louisiana residents, according to the study, typically spend almost nine hours sleeping, three hours watching TV and amazingly two hours and 41 minutes working every day. I mean, I know Commander's Palace martini lunches can go on a little long, but who only works for three hours every day? Bloomberg says the findings were culled from the self-reported data in the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey, which means that Louisiana residents are very forthcoming about their sedentary habits. Maybe we'll top someone's Most Honest States list one day?
The nola.com comment section for the article is abuzz with readers discussing the ranking. Naturally, racism and other inanities abound.
Now get back to work, lazies! You still have nearly two full hours left.
