Dallas is One Big Coronary Waiting to Happen

Just a head's up: The editors of Prevention Magazine think you're fat.

In an article published on Yahoo, both Lubbock and Dallas landed among the top eight most artery-clogging cities in America, based on data culled from the Centers for Disease Control.

Lubbock's fatassedness gets pinned on its "preponderance of artery-clogging steakhouses and barbecue joints." Dallas, meanwhile, just eats too much fast food (20.7 times per month) and spends little to no time traveling by foot or bike. (Duh -- that's why they invented cars.)

Anyway, where are we having lunch?
