Considering Mr. Buffet's participation in the growth (by virtue of his simply holding them in his portfolio) of many firms - Coca-Cola, P&G, etc. which have directly contributed to the ever-increasing American waistline (having led to surging sales in elastic-waistband pants, extra-wide door frames, and Rush Limbaugh), it seems only fitting that he may soon fall victim to a slow killer that is partially of his own design. I see nothing wrong with placing 7-8% of the total blame for the creation of a culture that accepts 80-lb infants and Krispy Kreme (Canadian spelling: "Crispy Cream," or alternatively, "Schlock") on Mr. Buffet's shoulders.

Give me Tim Horton's or give me death (via artherosclerosis)!
