Great headline: "Ethiopian men compete to be the fattest in the village by drinking a gruesome mixture of blood and milk..." Here in the US, we get way fatter by adding high-fructose corn syrup to everything in our fat-free diets.

I like how all the comments talk about the nudity in the photos. We have a gruesome aversion to nudity in Western cultures.

Being fat is a sign of abundance. Their culture takes that a little to the extreme making the poor men unhealthy to where they have trouble walking, one of humans most basic functions as well as their only athletic ability that trumps other animals; we can walk all day, everyday, other animals can't. To lose that ability seems like an evolutionary disadvantage IMO, so it goes to show how much culture can trump necessity.

I thought I had discussed the Bodi fat men before in this forum, but I see it was at a couple other forums. Sorry I didn't mention it before, Tyler, as they are a good example for your anti-milk case, at least for people who are trying to lose weight. It's no surprise that they never get mentioned by the most fervent dairy fans like the WAPF.  ;D

What I found the most intriguing is that they get rid of the extra bodyweight in a few weeks!
They don't look all that fat to me. Mostly extremely bloated. That would also explain how they get rid of it so fast.
