Study: Making Fun Of Fat People Is The Only Way To Curb The Obesity Epidemic
World

According to a leading health official, the only way for America to curb the absolutely out of control obesity epidemic is to make fun of fat people.


That’s right, bring out all of your fat people nicknames, like fatty, tubby, lard ass, chunkster, roly poly, pudgy, porky, cottage cheese thighs, cellulite city, or a slew of other names you used in middle school.

Don’t worry, as according to Daniel Callahan, the 82-year-old president emeritus of The Hastings Center, fat people need to be “shamed and beat upon socially” in order to lose weight.


With nearly half of the citizens of the United States classified as legally obese, it’s necessary to take drastic action now in order to stop this terrible trend.

The growing acceptance of morbid obesity has made its way to the silver screen, which is why everyone has been forced to get widescreen televisions.

Because of the complacency and acceptance of such an unhealthy lifestyle almost to the point of it being trendy, Callahan and others are calling for drastic measures.

Many experts in eating disorders and obesity, however, do not feel as Callahan, dismissing his calls for an “edgier strategy” as ignorant and damaging.

“The obvious target would be the large number of people who are unaware that they are overweight,” Callahan writes in the paper printed in the center’s first periodical volume of the year.


“They need, to use an old phrase, a shock of recognition. Only a carefully calibrated effort of public social pressure is likely to awaken them to the reality of their condition.

“They need to be leaned upon, nudged, and—when politically feasible—helped by regulations to understand that they are potentially in trouble. They should not want to be that way, nor should others.”

We should take a firm stance against obesity in America. I propose we host a running of the bulls disguised as an all you can eat buffet.

This Incredible Action-Packed Sequence Was Somehow Filmed In Single Take (Video)

Watch this amazing video that was entirely filmed in a single take. Of course, the footage itself is hyperbolic and pretty annoying. The plot is superfluous; the amazing element is what’s happening behind the camera. This short comes to us via DJI Innovations and was produced to showcase the company’s latest development: the sub-$5,000 Ronin gimbal […]

Tree Defies All Odds And Replants Itself After Being Knocked Down (Video)

Right in time for Earth Day, and harnessing all the majestic force of Mother Nature herself, watch this tree defiantly replant itself after being chopped down. If this isn’t an unapologetic and symbolic protest on behalf of naturalists everywhere, I don’t know what is. Even the men yielding the chainsaws had to give pause to […]

What If Food Porn Was Actually Food Porn? (Video)

I didn’t think watching a literal reenactment of the term “food porn” would actually be so realistic. This is well beyond my comfort level of what I’d like to see done with fruits and vegetables, but 10 points for creativity and an extra ‘atta boy for commitment. The best line? “Hey girl, you looking’ FRESH […]
