Can iPads Help Stop Sumo Corruption?

The Japan Sumo Association is handing out free iPads to training stables to encourage the use of email. The hope is that the devices will speed up communication between wrestlers, coaches and the association and create a “paper trail” for future scandal investigations. The iPads were reportedly chosen “because of [their] large touch-screen keys that can be easily prodded by the giant wrestlers.”?[%comments]

"The iPads were reportedly chosen "because of [their] large touch-screen keys that can be easily prodded by the giant wrestlers."

2/3 of Americans are overweight or obese. Go to any All-You-Can-Eat Buffet and see Armies of Morbidly Obese 'Average' Americans that would belittle Japanese Sumos. Imagine all that flesh in Sumo Thongs...think of that the next time you want to overeat.

Maybe iPads should be marketed specifically to the Morbidly Obese in America. Include a pointing wand for fat fingers. Perhaps America can be the next fertile ground for Sumo, both new markets and talent pool. They could wear Red, White and BLue Flag Thongs.

Whoa, off-topic much? What does that have to do with Sumo wrestling/Sumo wrestling cheating?

People are fat and that angers me! I'm gonna go whine about it on the internet in some random comments section! That way I don't have to get out of my chair and be a real activist.
