Anyone hanging around rocks that much

...is going to end up stoned*, and what comes next but the munchies? From fellow Idahoan Bubblehead at The Stupid Shall Be Punished:
Check out this paragraph in the "Obesity Reduction and Health Promotion Act of 2007":

(7) The combination of caloric intake, busy schedule, sedimentary profession, and lack of exercise combine to result in an increase in weight in many Americans, including Members of Congress, expanding waistlines and bulges of various sizes and shapes.

Emphasis mine. Now, what evidence does Congressman Sali have that those in sedimentary professions are more subject to weight gain than other Americans? Don't rock-hunters spend more time outdoors than many others? Why does he pick on geologists, instead of lawyers or some other profession?
Nicely done, Bubblehead.

*I take full responsibility for this pun.
