I got stuck behind a really fat person waddling along through Elephant and Castle underpass today, and it made me late for work. I think we should ban fat people from travelling around during the rush hour in SE1.
Vot you mean? my \'usband got a lot of money for painting me an the liitle vuns?
\'Ven he did it I veighed 200 hunnered punds, ven \'e finished i veighed 300 hunnered \'cos I ad to sit for so long..
I am gonna ask for more shekels for my gelfite fish an chikken soup, then I can go this elephant and castle place and block the road so little skinny people can not pass and have to go into shopping area to buy food to feed their little boddies and tiny minds.
Ha - the English have done a good job catching up with the chunky American cousins. At least lots of Americans are on a health kick, unlike here where veggie food and exercise are regarded with suspicion.
who do you see jogging around the city in the morning/lunch hour/after work?: Americans.
And for a major city, there are a lot of fat people - I'm sure far more per capita than in Manhattan.
anyway, I take those underpasses every day - you have to put an arm out and push your way around, politely saying excuse me. (another thing that needs attention here - manners.)
But at least the fat person was walking - look at all the lazy folk taking the bus one or two stops.
"medical reasons." yeah tell it to the fat schoolkids stuffing their faces with crisps and soda - for breakfast on the bus.
the medical reason worldwide is convenient calorie-packed food that doesn't spoil (preservatives and packaging) and is cheap and accessible.
greedy americans...hmm, let's not even compare an english person and an american person eating a meal. americans learn to chew, and to actually talk during a social meal.
but then again...there are plenty of greedy american pigs, even if they do have better table manners.
