A Quick Open Letter to Tony Stewart

Dear Tony:

Hey, you have a new series of advertisements for Burger King. Good for you. You are a big famous athlete, clearly. But the premise of the ad baffles me. Yes, you implicitly endorse things that you have no use for--that's what NASCAR is all about. But are we, the viewing audience, supposed to be happily surprised that you enjoy fast food?

I am not surprised that you enjoy the Burger King brand hamburger, The Whopper (tm).

What does surprise me is that you and your ilk are called "athletes" on national TV without a whiff of sarcasm.

Consider, sir, your rather beefy appearance. If driving a car wasn't a "sport", could a man of your stature and size be considered an athlete? Just askin'.

I kind of gloss over the fact that anyone is in that commercial besides Carrot Top. He keeps looking creepier and creepier.

Stewart is slimmer than CC Sabathia.
