Shaq Says Videogames Make Kids Fat


Posted June 26, 2007 - By Dana Leahy

Basketball superstar Shaquille O'Neal is a on a quest to help fat kids get in shape as part of a new reality television show. Today, he came out and said that videogames make kids pudgy.

His argument is one we've heart a thousand times over that kids sacrifice time they would normally spend playing outdoors for gaming time in front of the boob tube.

Shaq also claimed that our "fast food society" makes kids fat. Really Shaq? You think? How come there are still plenty of skinny kids mucking about, doing numerous activities, including playing games? Videogames and fast food don't make kids fat; parents and guilt makes kids fat. Everyone knows that.

Ok, Shaq. We'll give you that while kids could be running around in the carbon emission-filled air, they are instead enjoying the comfort of air conditioning and a directional pad, but that still doesn't explain your horrible comedy feature film Kazaam.

Maybe you don't know what you're talking about.
