If you don't quit being a lazy bum and get a job, you just might have a heart attack!

Well, that's what this new study is saying at least — and we suppose it isn't limited to just those who are being lazy, but those who are struggling to find sustainable employment! Seriously, we were joking about calling the jobless lazy.
