Do you think O&A are disappointed that most of their fans are pudgy?

Now let me just start off by saying this isn't a negative thread on the show. And it's not an attack thread on the show or the fans. Just a random thought I just had.

I've never met O&A but all I ever hear is that they're 100% cool with their fans and as we see, they give back a lot. And their staff seems cool too, I spoke with Sam for like a minute once and he was very nice.

But do you think they ever sit back and wonder "how did we get an army of fat sweaty guys as fans?" I'm sure in their heads they wanted leigons of in shape, active people who enjoy radio as part of their healthy lifestyle. Not "Analyse every cough to see if it's a special hidden message to me" kinds of fans. Of course that guy is the exception not the rule, but it probably gets annoying. I'm sure O&A also thought they'd have a more 50/50 split of male and female fans too.

Anyone else consider this?

Considering, I'm a healthy weight, I'm a minority in the fan base.

I was a bloated mess years ago, until my body started screaming "Wake up stupid and take care of yourself."

They're ok with their audience, they chose what type of show to do knowing full well it would limit the listeners to just the cool people.

Actually, I'm rather thin and most people I've had occasion to meet from here are likewise. It's probably about the statistical average with a majority of Americans being overweight in general.

I think so. I mean when Opie looks like this
and has to cater to us? It must be disappointing in some way.

I look at uber fans of this kind of radio like techies, gamers, comic geeks...these kinds of groups just have a tendency to be more sendentary...i highly doubt anyone on the show loses sleep over it

Guys focusing on the appearance of other guys is gay. That's the bottom line.

< not a fat guy. I'm not exactly in perfect shape either. (Smoker, drink, not in my best shape, but in shape nontheless)

I agree with bch. it's probably related to the overall physique of the country...

Dunno. I met Opie and Jimmy and didn't get any funny looks. Then again I'm too sexy for this thread.

I think the B-B-Boys would be more upset that one of their fans actually used to word "pudgy" in place of "fat fuck".:D

I'm in great shape in the summer (6'1, 236) but in the winter I'll go up to 255, so I guess I can be in the category as well in the winter

That is considered great shape?
damn rights it is. It's called farming, you get big, not fat. I laff when I see guys that are my height, look like whales, and are only 210 or something like that. It's called physical labor, look it up
