Michelangelo’s David After his Stay in the US

I got this in my email from my uncle who lives in Australia. "After a short stay in America, David returns to Italy". You know what's coming before you even open the picture. Apparently these are the jokes they make down under.

The image was originally made from an advertising campaign created for the German Olympic Sport Committee.

It's having a crack at the U.S not David or his descendants Orel ... why is everyone on tender hooks these days? I am an Aussie and it should be directed at us as well because we are a nation of Fatties as well ... myself included... but I am going to WW to do something about it.

These beauty ideals are not unreachable. It is just that there are certain people that don't have the genes to reach them no matter what they do. But the beauty is all arround, hidden behind bad habits, lack of culture and lazziness. You'd be surprised how much a healty diet and regular sports can do for your "beauty".

Anyone know where I can buy one of these please? Saw it in a shop in Florence earlier this year and should have bought it on the spot!
