Hey, put down your third piece of cake and focus for a second. Did you know Americans are fat? Like, really fat. If not, here comes HBO to remind you. The folks from HBO will premiere their newest documentary The Weight Of The Nation at the Franklin Institute on Tuesday. Mayor Nutter’s efforts to fight obesity are among the stories and information featured in the documentary. It’ll debut on HBO on May 14th. Here’s a reminder not to eat yourself to death until then.
