Yikes. I like them plump on occasion, but damn. Reminds me of a George Carlin comedy bit.

A bit NSFW. I mean it's George Carlin.

Well, it can be a bit offensive.

is it the media exaggerating again, or were the customers really 'scarred'?

I'm sure that people get offended by just about anything involving places that can pay out settlements these days. Ever heard of the FSA? (Free &$^% Army)

If you can't handle the emotional damage of being called fat, don't eat so much. That bill wasn't saying anything untrue - it was an accurate description of what they look like. It carried no connotations other than that they are fat.

Were they unaware that they were fat? How could that tidbit of information have eluded them? Were the fat and stupid? Although I am mildly overweight myself, I do think that North America generally is too 'tolerant' of obesity. Fat is not beautiful. If you have some genetic disposition to be heavy then fine, we empathize. But if it's just a result of eating at KFC five times a week and avoiding all physical exercise then I've little sympathy. Put down the triple cheese burger and go for a walk....Oh and that red thing on the counter is called an apple.

Political correctness has gone too far.
