Fat People

What do you all think of this poem?

"I’m fat and I don’t eat that much.
I gotta big bag of donuts stashed in my hutch.

I’m fat and a blind man can tell.
By the sounds that I make and the way that I smell.

I’m fat and I got diabetes
cause I eat Sugar Pops cause I don’t like my Wheaties.

I’m fat and I’ll tell you what.
my arms are too short for wipin my butt.

I’m fat and about it I lie.
And if you confront me I breakdown and cry.

Calories? about 1000 a day.
If I ate any less I’d get fat anyway.

A BBW that’s what I am.
But I’m here to tell you I’m made of ham.

I’m a land whale with an ass like 2 moons
I won’t swim in the ocean cause I’m scared of harpoons.

I’m fat and I’m at the buffet.
Gonna eat all the food before they take it away.

I’m fat and I muffle a fart.
As I ride around Wal-Mart in a mototized cart.

I’m fat and I’m in a bad mood.
I’ve been waiting 5 minutes BRING ME MY FOOD!

Not only are you blatantly making fun of fat people, but you’re also doing it on a site where anyone that is fat is very unlikely to see it. Way to make a difference there buddy.

Are you “heavyset” yourself there mark r.? You seem to be obsessed with fat people. In fact, that is all you are commenting about on this forum.

Yeah, give a rest why don’t you?

And you need to work on your meter.

haha Char-dog…

Why the obsession with fat people? One of the other posters was right…not too many on this board are that fat…(and if they are, I’m happy for them that they are here, reading quality info, and trying to improve themselves).
And for any of the fatter members on this board, ignore the idiot. Sometimes when people are struggling with weight, which many of them have been doing their whole lives, the smallest neg. comment can set them back immensely.

And yes, I know you’re built like Mr. O, so maybe you have the right to say all this. ASS

I won?t attack your view or opinions on fat people. But I will say one thing.

Just not funny.

I agree with char-dawg.

Damn, Mark. Judging by the response, you’re no poet. LOL

Billy

Your meter sucks
This much is true

It all should flow
We thought you knew

About your verse
It’s fat but thin

Longfellow, not
He’d say “It’s sin!”

So next you type
Your rhymes for us

Please, take the time
To get hit, by a Bus

“It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What do I think of it? I think you’ve spent too much of your creative resources on a negative pursuit. Want to REALLY do something constructive? Channel that energy into HELPING people. Ridicule never works.

HEY I WORK AT WAL-MART AND I GET SICK OF FATTIES RIDING AROUND IN THE CARTS WHEN THEY SHOULD BE WALKING. YOU GOT MY FAT AND TOO THE REST OF YOU I GUESS THE TRUTH HURTS, THE WORLD NEEDS TO NOT BE SO DAMN SENSITIVE AND LEARN TO DEAL WITH LIFE MORE HONESTLY. THE RIGHT TOO SPEAK WAS FOUGHT FOR BY KILLING PEOPLE NOT BY BEING POLITE TO THE BAD GUYS! WISEN UP!

HEY BIGPOPPASTEINER, YOUDON’T HAVE TO YELL FOR CRYIN’ OUT LOUD!!!

BILLY Sorry, Billy

SORRY BILLY DIDNT MEAN TO YELL.

Don’t make me change my screen name back to fat-scholar and threaten to sit on your face and squash you beneath my fat fleshly buttockses!

I like the poem that makes fun of you much better.

You didn’t happen to have your heart broken by a heavyset gal did ya? Just curious.

Definitely not funny, but maybe that’s because in some cases it’s all too realistic?

I think it was Chris Shugart who once opined that he believed there’s a huge segment of obese who lurk on fitness boards like this looking for advice, but never post. IMO, there’s no sense in chasing them away with crap like this.
