He's Not Heavy...

He’s my brother newspaper. The San Diego Union-Tribune has a little self congratulatory note on the front page to the effect that today’s paper weighs four pounds. Some papers would brag about content, or writing; our local rag brags about its weight. The "heaviest in at least a decade."
For comparison, they tell us that today’s issue weighs the same as two green bean casseroles, or four NFL footballs, or three eight-inch apple pies, or one average Chihuahua. A small Chihuahua, actually, but...
I wonder how it compares to the weight of an average bowel movement.
