Fatwa

EatLard.jpg

Now that fat has been blamed for global farting warming, expect all that self-esteem nonsense to be sent down the Memory Hole. Two legs good and all that.

‘When it comes to food consumption, moving about in a heavy body is like driving around in a gas guzzler. The heavier our bodies become the harder and more unpleasant it is to move about in them and the more dependent we become on our cars. Staying slim is good for health and for the environment. We need to be doing a lot more to reverse the global trend towards fatness, and recognise it as a key factor in the battle to reduce emissions and slow climate change.’

These folks are too clever by half, for me.

They actually think about these things. And next, with the benefit of a government grant, they will set about providing the statistical framework sufficient unto legislating against heaviness.

Thank God for these people. They will save us from ourselves. (And I thought this was, in fact, God's job.)
