The article itself is pretty lame, but the headline was a "WTF" headline.  Study Shows that Parents Cannot Tell that their Kids are Obese.  I mean, "WTF?"  How can not tell if your kid's overweight?  Do you wear rose-colored blindfolds in your house?  

Dude, it's like Augustus Gloop's parents in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory who let him eat tons of chocolate and say "oh it's all nourishment anyway.  He wouldn't eat it if he doesn't need it."  

Is this like "opposite anorexia" or something?  You know how no matter how gaunt an anorexic gets, she still perceives herself as fat.  No matter how fat the kid gets, the parent will still see a normal weight kid?  That kind of psychological delusion is frightening to me.

Can you get that in a can now, or is it still just in pill form? ;)
