Dude, what is with all the negativity about fatness? It's not like fat and sexy are mutually exclusive. And since over half of the adult population in the US is overweight she'd better get used to the idea that people she meets online are not all going to be supermodels.

Funny otherwise. [thumbsup]

I saw no negativity about fatness on the page.


Just because the "fat" comment in the the third column doesn't make it an insult.

Why, because you can't find the statement "I hate fat people"? Or "fat people suck?" Peebs is dead right. It's definitely fatist, whichever way you look at it. How the Hell could you not conclude that? [Confused] Literalists. *Sigh* But hey -- each to their own.

And it was midly amusing... for a bit. [Smile]

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)
