Jon Stewart on Why America Is Fat

A recent study, titled F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future 2011, came out just in time for National French Fry Day. That irony wasn't lost on Jon Stewart.

In his Daily Show monologue, Stewart states that 38 states have an obesity rate of over 25 percent of their populations. What's the cause? Well, many blame the fast-food industry (Wendy's Baconator was called out). Stewart says when you start naming your food after weapons, of course they'll kill you.

Stewart's solution? Either we have to lose weight or we get so fat we stop reproducing because we can't find our genitals. Watch after the jump:
