Too Fat To Eat Out!


Mississippi legislators this week introduced a bill that would make it illegal for state-licensed restaurants to serve obese patrons.


I’m relatively bothered by this. So is this our latest discriminatory procedure? Instead of having “The Drinking Fountain” and “The Colored Drinking Fountain,” will Mississippi have….restaurants and troughs?

How will it be enforced? will the mgr eye you up and separate you from your party? “I’m sorry. no. you are TOOOOOO fat. OUT!” Will you walk in and have to climb on a scale after having your height measured? “oooo. soo close. sorry. buhbye now.” Or would it be subjective?  “If they look fat to you, ask them to leave.” I can just see THAT massacre at some small town fried chicken stand. “OHNOSIR! HE IS FATTER THAN ME! WHY DOES HE GET TO STAY?”

I’d be worried about the judgment from the wait staff.  “yeah. order that sundae. you’ll never get back in here” “are you *sure* you want extra butter?”  “no, i think we’ll hold off on the dinner rolls, you are teetering on the edge.”

I just think that Mississippi didn’t learn. Only this time, when it is the fat people uprising? it will be ugly. this is about gravy.
