No comment.



To curtail Japan's overweight population, the Japanese health ministry  
recently mandated that all waistlines among its 56 million workers  
over age 40 be below “regulation size” of 33.5 inches (for men). Any  
company failing to bring its employees’ weight under control--as well  
as the weights of their family members--will be fined up to 10% of its  
earnings by the government.
