  1. Huh. You carried away a totally different interpretation than I did.

    I didn’t see it as being about obesity at all. I saw it as riffing on a common physics trope (“What is the terminal velocity of a cow?” “Well, if you assume a spherical cow, the equation becomes…”)

    Considering that the animals also behave like they’re made of rubber, the mapping onto “this is about obesity” doesn’t sound plausible to me.
