HOWDY Snarkle Parklers… and a very good Tuesday to one and all! This morning, as we were sipping on our Tazo Zen Tea, we heard an interesting story on Headline News. Apparently America’s issues with and/or causes for weight gain have less to do with Krispy Kremes and lack of exercise than they do with our sleep habits. Or who we’re sleeping with, for that matter. That’s right, according to a new study, which we just lifted, in part, from CNN, other possible factors include things like:
1. Inadequate sleep.
2. Nice temperatures. (Air conditioning and heating limit calories burned from sweating and shivering.)
3. Fewer people smoking. (Less appetite suppression.)
4. Older birth moms.
5. Darwinian natural selection. (Fat people outsurvive skinny ones).
6. Assortative mating, or “like mating with like,” Translation: fat people procreating with others of the same body type, gradually skewing the population toward the heavy end.
SO, if we smoke more, sleep less, sweat and shiver a whole lot more, and encourage really skinny teens to procreate, will that help fix the problem?

Hopefully, it still means a certain co-Snark Park administrator, whose name shall remain KYAHGIRL, can celebrate her 8th Anniversary with her husband Ron tonite by sipping champagne and nibbling on chocolate covered strawberries–without feeling the least bit of guilt!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! Enjoy!
