This was KOOK's comment in regards to my disability post. He saved my butt by bringing up obesity as a disability.
"This pi$$es me off as well. Disability is the new welfare. There is no clock on disablity.
I know of people who have been put on disability for life because they have a math learning disorder...well hell...so do I.
you forgot Obese. I am a big boy, but some of these folks I see, at the ages they are...holy cow. I know sometimes it is diabetes, or a thyroid problem, but when I see some Grizzly Bear wolfing down crab rangoons by the dozen at the chinese buffet and then waddle out to their minivan with the disabled placard it pisses me right off.
Hey, Shamu, lay off the ho-ho's and you would be fine.
Like I said, I am not a light weight, but just last night I went out for Pizza and a few cold ones and there was a whole family. Daddy Bear (huge), Mama Bear (even huger), and two little baby bears.
The pre-teens weighed close to what I do if they weighed an ounce. That is just gross man.
I gained about 50lbs after my divorce and I still got it, but when you are twelve and pushing 220 you got problems and it starts with your parents."
