I am also ever so weary of the eternal archive shots of headless chub torsos trundling around malls and high streets in EVERY report on the 'crisis'. Surely they could come up with some altenative visuals for variety...
It's official, it seems, what was once a rueful joke is now a blatant reality. The obese are the 'niggers' of the western world.
Mock and abuse as you please. It's government - supported bigotry.
When the actual 'fat-bashing' in the streets starts, will anyone even give a toss?
PS... I wish my original post hadn't evaporated into the ether just as I was finishing it. It was much more eleoquent.(sp?) I had pretty much worn myself out when I wrote this one, but it says basically what I intended to, and I stand by it.
