Fat's in the News

Alright, it's Mardi Gras season... Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day... were serious religious traditionalists use all the fats in the household so that they don't go rancid and therefore are wasted during the Lenten fast.

Southwest Airlines apparently thinks that Gen X director Kevin Smith needs to fast for Lent.

"Southwest Airlines has apologized to director Kevin Smith for kicking him off one of its airplanes, but the weighty argument appears to be far from over.

Smith, who was asked to leave a flight from Oakland to Burbank, Calif., on the weekend because of his size, has challenged Southwest to bring its seats to the set of Jon Stewart's Daily Show."


Yep, been watching this for the last couple of days and it still amuses me. It will be interesting to see where it ends up.

It also New York Fashion Week and one again the models weigh in and some are apparently to weighty to use at size 4, WTF, but there it is again.

At size 4, Fashion Week model Coco Rocha, 21, is latest of many women considered fat by industry.

Read article.

Does it make sense, no, but there it is folks, Fat Tuesday, so have a yummy one.
