In most funny pics i've seen "couch potato" people are portayed as fat, ugly with tons of beer cans and pizza boxes thrown on the floor. I deny to accept that, it's ridiculous.
Anyone else who feels the same way with me?

Why stop there? Why are fat people on TV or in movies always the funny ones? Why are blondes considered stupid? Pop culture and pop media loves stereotypes and the world just eats it up. I know couch potatoes come in all shapes and sizes, but for the sake of commercials and characters on TV, the way most people identify with a couch potato is to go full force and show someone truly unappealing. In our social culture, being fat and ugly is something no one strives to be regardless of trying to love yourself no matter what you look like -- and promoting the opposite lifestyle makes people think they will not end up this way.
