Yo Soy [Too Fat and Dumb to Join] el Army

uncle_samEver wondered why Hispanics are underrepresented in the U.S. military? Well, according to Rand Corporation, a California think tank, it’s simply because we are fat -and not very bright at school.

The report said about 75 percent of Hispanics overall are high school graduates compared to 85 percent of whites, and Hispanics are on average 10 pounds heavier than whites.

But Latinos should not despair: Rand is making some suggestions to change all this, including easing weight requirements and instead measuring recruits’ strength, among other options. “You can have a large bone structure but still be very strong and effective,” the report’s author tells the Houston Chronicle. (No word on the poor scores, though.)

In the meantime, if you are still looking for the right career path, you might want to check out working for La Migra, apparently the only hiring institution in these tough times.
