GUESS I’LL SKIP THE GYM AND GO HAVE A BEER INSTEAD: Potbellies Become Stylish. And we can thank President Obama! “Hipsters, by nature contrarian, according to Dan Peres, the editor of Details, may be reacting in opposition to a president who is not only, as the press relentlessly reminds us, So Darn Smart, but also hits the gym every morning, has a conspicuously flat belly and, when not rescuing the economy or sparring with Kim Jong-il, shoots hoops. ‘If we had a slob in the White House, all the hipsters would turn into some walking Chippendales calendar,’ Mr. Peres said. Instead, the streets of Williamsburg are crowded with men who are, as he noted, ‘proudly rocking a gut.'”
So does this mean that we could solve our national obesity problem by electing Jack Black?
