Boil 1.01

Der Spiegel reports that Brazil, the "nation of supermodels, samba dancers and beauty queens", is battling obesity. Which means all those Brazil T-Shirts sold to hapless Germans stuck in their mimetic fashion ways has boosted Brazil's economy. Or is obesity not really associated with affluence ?
Der Spiegel lands a blow when it alarmingly asks: "Is this the end of the girl from Ipanema?" But think ahead: this might mean the end *gasp* of suedamerikanischer Lebensfreude.

Rest assured, we are monitoring this situation closely.
