“Obesity is probably the only disease where a run for the cure will actually cure it”

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (for breast cancer) began in 1982; there have been other races called a “run for the cure.” Comedian Garet Seman joked on Twitter on October 26, 2013:

“Obesity is probably the only disease where a run for the cure will actually cure it.”

The tweet quickly went viral.
