Running Joke

Check out this brief ad:

There’s a slightly longer version running on radio (which is where I heard it). Here’s what I want to know: isn’t this dolt costing us money? As much money as a lazy couch-potato working on a case of type-2 diabetes?

Why do we demonize addicts of Sprite and Doritos, but not manic exercisers whose accumulated injuries drive up the cost of health care? I exercise, I like it, it’s a tonic. But when something I’m doing leads to injury, I stop doing it, or lessen the intensity. This guy seems to think his maladies are noble. I say he’s a walking, jogging cost center.

    Agreed. Ever notice how many gym instructors have had multiple knee surgeries? Who pays for those?
