You are what you eat?

Yesterday’s post included a link to some colloquial (I assume) Chinese. In today’s post, there’s some colloquial (American) English.

Are you familiar with an actor named The Rock? His real name is Dwayne Johnson and he looks like this:

(images taken from the two articles I’ll link to in bold below)

Movies you may have seen him in: some of the “Fast & Furious” sequels, “The Mummy Returns” and “The Scorpion King”, and “Hercules”.

He looks like that partly because he’s a former wrestler, partly because he’s half Samoan and partly because he eats/exercises like this:

“Eat Like Dwayne The Rock Johnson Meal Plan” (from Muscle & Fitness)

Wow, right?

The colloquial English I mentioned comes next: it’s a humorous “Real-Time Response to Learning What The Rock Eats”. (Warning: there’s a little swearing.)

Reading this, I was reminded of a story I heard on NPR the other day. It’s about the recent trend in South Korea of binge-eating reality shows. Yikes.
