We Should Stop Making Fun Of (And Feeding) Fat People


Does it make me a terrible person that I find this entire segment hysterical? Probably. But as we know, laughing at fat people is this week's "last acceptable prejudice," so I'm gonna get in on some of that sweet tubby-mocking while I still can.

"We're really suffering as a society…" Yes. Yes we are.

Also: Neil: "Why focusing on a guy's girth has anyting to do with a guy's positions…"THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!

What's more bizarrely off-message: Fox News cozying up to Fat?So!, or Fat?So! cozying up to Fox News?

The enemy of my enemy is my dinner partner?

My reaction to "we're missing our on the economic contribution of smart, talented fat people" just made my secretary turn around and ask me if I was okay.

jolie (#16)

(missing out, grrr)

Baboleen (#1,430)

It's also not fair that, in public establishments, we have to miss out on the economic contribution of smart, talented, smokers!!

I know, God knows how much less work I'd get done if I didn't have to nip out for a fag every now and then.

That's what he said!

Did she just call us "fat and lazy?"

Sorry, false alarm. We're "lazy and stupid." Phew!

Yep, just like a drunk guy hitting on a fat chick at last call.

LondonLee (#922)

Am I the only one who got a little cognitive dissonance from watching a Fox anchor get all concerned about prejudice and bigotry?

riggssm (#760)

And all the swears, too! I thought Fox was the Christian station.

I'm gonna have to agree with the Taliban on this one.

I would like to come out and say, I am really freaking fat. No, really. And I don't want Fox defending me and my slow metabolism and large frame.

NicFit (#616)

Hey, lay off fat people! After all, they are warm in the winter and shady in the summer.

NicFit (#616)

Formerly (and probably futurely) corpulent myself, btw.

HiredGoons (#603)

This is probably the most newsworthy thing to come out of New Jersey.

The man in the Are You Fat ad (page left) is hott. Somebody's gotta love them and that somebody is me.

I'm glad to see the face transplant woman has a burgeoning career as an author and pundit.

They picked the fattest person as their spokesperson, which makes sense.

Also: Here's something I've learned. I can call relatively ANYONE a "bigot" if they disagree with what I choose to do with KFC's famous bowl (consume it, and others like it.)

Oh, but it's a genetic thing and metabolism and such and such pretty much 100% accross the board. In which case TECHNICALLY, I'm going to choose to call it Racism. NO, even better: COMMUNISM. Fucking Racism Communist political ads won't let me eat my KFC sfamous bowl in peace and also contribute to society. Now THAT is something I could really put on a protest sign. And will. And did. And now I'm tired (the sign and my arms are heavy)

Idk. Why is it okay for y'all to make fun of fat people, but not of black people? Personally I think the gloves should be off for public people, but y'all liberal goons get all hot and bothered if I make a watermelon joke, but then you get all giggly because Abe makes light of fattiness. Of course it's hypocritical of FoxNews to argue for fairness, but y'all are just as bad. Promise not to get outraged by other people's intolerance, and then maybe (maybe) I'll believe that you aren't just buttering your own toast.

slinkimalinki (#182)

buttering my own toast? i should pay someone else to butter my my toast for me now?
