Andy Rooney Discusses Obesity, Announces Diet Plans

Commentator, curmudgeonly octogenarian, and proto-blogger Andy Rooney was shocked by recent obesity figures, and last night on 60 Minutes he announced plans to lose 20 pounds by Halloween. That's like two weeks away! "Unlike people who go on a popcorn diet, or a chocolate diet," he said, "I know how to lose weight. I weigh too much because I eat too much. I'm not going to count calories or watch how many carbohydrates I eat, I'm just going to eat less. The only thing I'm going to cut out completely is ice cream." The segment also includes a bonus shot of him in his pajamas!
