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.
