When I was a kid in the 1970s, the TV commercials and comic book ads all freely mocked the fatties.

This semester, my second-grader niece has an obese classmate who needs a cane and an inhaler, and the children had to go to some sort of lesson on recognizing the importance of people's bodies. For homework, she had to draw a picture of people helping friends with different bodies.

Remember the Simpsons episode where Homer tried to become morbidly obese to go on disability? His goal weight was 300 pounds.

A cane for a seven year old is something I haven't heard of until now; thanks for shortening my list! (Jesus fucking Christ...)

It's a five-story building, so the school is legally required to provide an elevator.

The second-grade classrooms are on the second floor.

Guess who is the only second-grader with an elevator pass?

Wait, is she so fat she needs the cane or does she have unrelated mobility problem?

Fuuuuuuuuuck that. Thankfully, where I live, we're pretty safe. There's only one fat kid in the class. We all got papers on her first day of school offering advice on healthy portion sizing and what types of food we should send her to school with. Soda is outright banned (although they're okay with juice, for some weird reason).

Not that I need that type of information, but it's nice to know there are schools in the world fighting the good fight.

PS: I would have had her draw the friends helping the one with an "O" for the body type, as teaching it how to exercise.

This is clearly marketed towards fat asses because marketing knows that they are all so broke from buying so much betus that they can't afford $11 and have to break it up into 4 payments of 2.75.

I wonder if someone somewhere still makes these. I'd order a couple as presents for some coworker hams....

Better not. They would just smother it in honey & brown sugar and try to bake it.

I remember when I had a Reader's Digest subscription. Their stories kept me entertained. Now I feel old.

Most of my high-carb shit is in the cupboard.
