I just have to bring this up…
If you’d like a good laugh, you’ve got to check out the comments in an old post of mine.
The post is called: Stop stealing food from the hungry!!
In that post, I first mention an article in which some estimates show that the number of overweight people in the world has surpassed the number of people that don’t get enough food.
Of course, me being me, I make a ridiculous joke that fat people are literally stealing hungry people’s food. I then PURPOSELY feature two photos of kids, one of an actual fat kid, and one photo of two (probably African) children with distended stomachs. The purpose was to mistakenly label both photos as fat kids to make a point. The point is that it’s kind of sad that the real fat kid is being fed a ton by his parents, with no regard for his health, while there are millions of starving children around the world that really are starving.
No, I’m not trying to reiterate the old saying that your mom used to tell you at dinner… “Finish your plate! There’s people starving in Africa!!!”
It’s different than that. It’s more like “DON’T finish your plate because there are people starving”.
I don’t know. I certainly have no idea how to go about getting starving children the nutrients they need, so I’m not going to speculate on that.
HOWEVER, I will speculate on how the real fat kid god fat, and how he can get un-fat.
Anyway, read the comments. Several different people threaten to have my blog shut down because I am an idiot for mistakenly labeling the starving children with big bellies as fat, despite the fact that I say in black and white that one photo features the effects of malnutrition.
It’s just amazing.
The most recent threat was to sue me. It cracked me up.
