The New Fat Camp

I randomly ran into a guy I went to high school with last night. This particular fellow has been incarcerated for the last 8 years and I can honestly say I have never in my life seen someone in such good shape in person. I mean a cursory look past the facial tattoos and all you could see was muscle...Arnold muscle. Ripped.

I am not usually one to check out other guys but damn.

I started to wonder as I drove away looking at my pot belly if we are going to come to a day and age in the country where they only people who are in great shape are people who have been to prison?

Will they feed on the fat lazy slobs on the outside who never got caught?

Is prison the ultimate fat camp? Bad food. Nothing to do but exercise all day.

Maybe one day going to prison will be in vogue and Shape magazine will do an expose on the best places to get locked up.

Some say we are allowing these criminals to get stronger and become beter criminals but I actually think it adds discipline, structure and a new ouitlook on life. Exercise is always good.

I think I know who you're talking about... Pat told me he was out

Hey, and unlike real "fat camps"...jail is technically free. So you lose a few years of your life - look at the hot body you gain. The rest of society are the ones paying for your weight loss. So it's a win-win.

You know...I'm in the process of working out and dieting...
Maybe I should commit a minor crime to help give me an edge...

I'll be looking for that list in Vogue and Shape someday.

Hmmm. Interesting thought. Perhaps we should take away their weight benches and feed them McDonald's. That way when they get out and commit another crime, the cops won't have to chase them...

See EVERYTHING has a good side to it ... I am pretty sure it would suck to be in prison for 8 years BUT on the other hand the workouts are most excellent!

Hahaha! Love the idea of prison as fat camp. National service would work too though! I've got a male friend who is really quite *ahem* hot and has always been in decent shape but 9 months in NS and that boy is muscle bound. Not in the crazy, overdone Arnold way, but in the 'I have obvious and defined muscles but am still lean at the same time, envy me'.

Drool....
