Memoirs of the Rainbow Emperor

I finally finished my essay that I have to use for my school's upcoming Speech Contest(that I'm most likely gonna place dead last, if judged in such a way). Everybody had to write about something that involves either just themselves or their home countries. I covered the topic of "Obesity in America", because I kind of felt they were expecting it from me anyway. Here is the entire thing entirely in Japanese. It's better that way, because I don't want you guys(that don't understand Japanese) to laugh at my embarassing essay that'd make an elementary school child point and laugh.



アメリカは色々な問題がたくさんあります。中でも一番な問題は肥満だと思います。もちろん世界中に太った人は多いですが、アメリカは世界で一番太りすぎの国です。第二次世界対戦後からアメリカの人口は太りすぎの人が30パーセント以上に増えてしまいました。アメリカの肥満の理由はたくさんあります。しかし、肥満の一番理由はファストフードです。1980年代から、ファストフードの店が多くなりました。値段も安いし、家で料理をしたくない時に便利なので、人はファストフードをつい食べてしまいます。でも、それだけではありません。テレビとかラジオとかでファストフード店のCMがいつも見られます。それに、色々な店は遊び場もあるので、子供たちがその店に行きたくなるでしょう。それで小さいときからファストフードを食べ始めます。子供たちは小さいうちからファストフードを食べたら、大人になって体が太ったり、様々な病気になったりするおそれがあります。もちろん、アメリカ人はこのことに気づいています。2005年「スーパーサイズミー」という映画の初演から、マクドナルドがスーパーサイズを出さなくなりました。それに、ファストフードの店にサラダとかカロリーが低いメニューが増えました。そして、テレビで色々なダイエットのCMが見られます。炭水化物の少ない食事とか、レモンしか食べないダイエットとかがあります。アメリカで運動のテレビゲームは人気があります。例えば、学生たちは体育でDDRをやっています。しかし、肥満はまだ大変な問題です。特に会社員の毎日は忙しいので、体にいい食べ物を食べたり、毎日運動したりすることを嫌がっています。いつか太りすぎのひとの数が減るかもしれませんが、いつそうなるか、分かりません。

Some of you may be able to read this, and if so, feel free to laugh at my shittiness. =(

P.S.- As I'm typing this, a girl is looking over my shoulder going "HAYAI HAYAI!" haha

America is the problem is a lot of variety. Among the issues that I think are obese. Of course a lot of people around the world fat, but too much fat America is the best country in the world. After the Second World matchup of America's population who are too fat to increase more than 30 per cent. There are many reasons for obesity in America. However, the reason for the fast food obesity. From the 1980s, many fast-food shops. Still cheaper price, and do not want to cook at home when convenient, people will just eat fast food. But it is not just. Television or radio or in the fast-food outlets are always looking at CM. Besides, a variety of shops, so there is a playground, the kids wanted to go to the store. So when the small start from eating fast food. Children are small食べたらfast food from the adult body fat and a variety of diseases or if it is. Of course, the Americans are aware of this. 2005 "Supersize Me" from the premiere of his film, McDonald's has出さなくsuper size. Besides, a fast-food store or low-calorie salad menu has increased. And TV variety show CM diet. Low-carbohydrate diet and eat only diet and lemon. America is a popular video game in motion. For example, students in physical education DDR to do. However, obesity is still a huge problem. In particular, workers are busy every day, that good food and exercise every day and hate it. Someday's too fat may be a decrease in the number, and when you get there, et cetera.

A winning translation is Japanese -> English -> Korean -> English:

The United States eagerly is various problem. Obesity regarding a problem the maximum quantity it thinks even between them whom it spreads out. Justly, it being many regarding the person whom it gets fat inside the world, it is and the maximum quantity which is all, but, the world, to get fat too much plentifully the United States is the country. To be fat too much are many 30 percent American populations which get the person or compared to increased from world-wide opposition of 2nd to be late next. Regarding the reason of American obesity there is a large quantity. Of but, most the reason big obesity is the quick hood. From 80's, the shop of the quick hood became the many thing. With because is convenient, under cooking temper it wants in the house, the hood where the person will be quick it is accidental and when eating, also the price wraps. Is like this, that it is not legitimately. You and the television or the radio is a possibility of seeing the CM of the quick hood shop always. Also the various shop which because is place is a glow l thing to that goes to that shop and Sip child wild standstill, is possible and will connect. It will be small from, will eat the hood where it is quick to that and the case which it will start. It is small from it was, became the adult who eats the quick hood and child wild time, possibility there was a body which it gets fat, became the various bottle. Justly, the American person inside this is under keeping in mind. 2005 "the highest size B", got up a MacDonald highest size from the first day of motion picture and it stopped. In me, the salad or calorie increases in the shop of the quick hood in the low-end place the menu. And, there is a possibility of seeing the CM of the various diet in the television which it spreads out. ley Drives as it this and it is a diet which it does not eat only, the carbohydrate takes a meal in the some place. The television game of motion is popularity inside the United States. When for example, the student DDR inside physical training. But, the obesity yet quite is problem. The clerk it is special because everyday busy, that it eats the food where you are good in the body the fact does not like motion everyday and. When but it becomes like this, in order to get the possibility decrease of too much many 1 thing to be fat probably, it spreads out in old days and it does not understand.
