In the belly of The (Daily) Beast

You don’t get to be a #4-ranked party school without making the Top Ten cut of the “Fiftiest Druggiest Colleges”—this according to an article over at the Daily Beast, which put West Virginia University in the #9 position.  The hearts of every Mountaineer must be swelling with pride at this moment.

I sent sister Debbie a message via Facebook that her husband’s alma mater, Vanderbilt, comes in at #28.  Pikers.

In other Beast-ly news, a list of the “30 Deadliest Meals of 2010”—and Uno Chicago Grill is in the #1 spot.  The bill of fare includes pizza skins, an individual Chicago classic pizza, “field greens with goat cheese and lemon olive oil vinaigrette dressing,” a “Chocolate Cookie Freezer” and a mega-sized deep dish sundae.  8,580 calories, 137.5 grams of saturated fat, 9,190 milligrams of sodium and a carb content of 454g.  Bon appetit!

I'm no lightweight anymore, but I look at those meals and wonder how anyone could polish them off. I especially liked the McDonald's entry where you're expected to follow a chocolate shake with a McFlurry.
