Fat is good.

For the economy.

But if you still want to lose weight, this picture might inspire you.

By talking to my people, you know that it occurred to me
It's more than just a feeling--it's a philosophy

Heavy makes you happy, drying up your drink
Oh, spread a little heavy and it makes somebody sing

The Staples Singers knew.

Goliath Casket Company? Gee, pretty sensitive there. Why not call it HUMONGOUS Casket Company?

MadisonMan said...

My first reaction: How on Earth does Prof. A. know about Goliath Caskets (Is Supersize Me! their motto?)

But then I saw they were noted in the article.

That casket company's name is hilarous. Goliath was "oversize," but I can hardly see why anyone would want to associate their deceased relatives with someone who was killed and beheaded by a pipsqueak. I suppose it's a little better than Leviathan.

"[A] fitting memorial ... "

Oh, my.

Generally speaking, I understand, and/or at least tolerate and encourage with humor, the phrase "Let no pun go unresisted."

In this case ... well ... Resist! Resist!?

Oh, my!

I submitted the link to Goliath Caskets to BoingBoing (giving credit to you, bien sur). I've been trying for a year to get them to link a suggestion of mine. This could be the ticket!

At 5' 10" and 200lbs. I'm just doing my part for the economy when I crave junk food? Cool.

I dunno, SC, shifting guidelines aside, there are a lot of fat people out there.
