FFM: ‘The Average American’
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:39 am

Back by popular demand (ok, two people), the FFM returns from hiatus.

Friday Fun Meme: The Average American

According to the book The Average American , a majority of Americans do the following. How do you stake up to the list?

  • Eats peanut butter at least once a week (up and until recently this was true. Lately, however, not so much)
  • Prefers smooth peanut butter over chunky (most definitely)
  • Can name all Three Stooges (heck, I can add Shemp and Curly Joe–and I don’t even like the Stooges…)
  • Lives within a 20-minute drive of a Wal-Mart (Two, actually)
  • Eats at McDonald’s at least once a year (I have kids, so duh!)
  • Takes a shower for approximately 10.4 minutes a day (not that long-I figure closer to 5)
  • Never sings in the shower (who needs that?)
  • Lives in a house, not an apartment or condominium. (House)
  • Has a home valued between $100,000 and $300,000 (yup)
  • Has fired a gun (yup, but it’s been a while)
  • Is between 5 feet and 6 feet tall (6′2″+)
  • Weighs 135 to 205 pounds (eek–more like 210)
  • Is between the ages of 18 and 53 (37)
  • Believes gambling is an acceptable entertainment option (sure)
  • Grew up within 50 miles of current home (Not even)

    3. Am I An Average American?

      Today’s Friday Fun Meme from Poliblog asks if you do the things that average Americans do and provides a list to go by. So here goes my addition to today’s fun:
