This guy asks the question, "If a fat
lady falls in the forest and nobody sees it, is it still funny?" Uh, no, and neither are you. Mirror
I may be vegan, but I hate PETA.
I don't hate them just because of their incredibly demeaning attitude
towards fat people, but it sure doesn't help. Do they seriously
have no idea how many fat veg*ns there are? I've learned that this
particular ad was discontinued after complaints, but they still demean
fat people, as with their latest attack on Michael Moore. Write them

Alli is the newly approved US weight loss drug. You are warned to start
this when you don't have to go to work for a few days, and not only to
wear dark clothing, but to keep a change on hand. No big

This is Bill Bryson. For a short
while, he was one of my favourite newly-discovered authors. Did I
unwittingly choose his books in the order in which he went from being genuinely funny to stooping to mean, fat phobic humour?
Not to say he is demeaning only to fat people...he appears to have
become increasingly bigoted and gripey about all kind of things. At first he

"The other three diners arrived--a rotund
mother and father and an even larger teenaged son--whom the waiter
thoughtfully seated in a place where I could watch them without having
to crane my neck or reposition my chair. It is always interesting
to watch people eat, but nothing provides more interest than the sight

Obviously, I left bits out, but this is
the gist of it. I'll not read the remaining 3/4 of the book this

pile that was beside our exercise bike. Oh,
wait........fat people don't exercise. They just eat. Clearly, I'm
going about it all wrong.
