Rowdy Roddy Piper Kicks Childhood Obesity in the Face

There's a new warrior in the battle against childhood obesity and his name is Rowdy Roddy Piper, the 1980s professional wrestling superstar. So you can forget your pansy and ineffectual solutions like making whiny "suggestions" or banning Happy Meal Toys. Sometimes kids need to be scared straight, or at least beaten senseless with a metal folding chair. Says Mr. Piper in this great video from Funny or Die, "Childhood obesity is an epidemic that can and will be stopped. I'm not just fightin' kids, I'm holding adults responsible, too."
