Your Fat Is Unequivocally Your Fault #5- George Romero Is A Modern Day Nostradamus

Every now and again, when I have that special little extra glow of hate in my heart, like I'm ET's evil cousin sent from hell to destroy the Earth, I mosey on over to a sad little corner of the internet called "Dances With Fat", wherein a shaved, tuskless walrus does its level best to convince the world that she is indeed human, and that being a disgusting fat body is perfectly ok.  And by "perfectly ok" I mean that everyone on planet Earth NEEDS to recognize that "fat is beautiful", "fat is healthy", and that some people just can't help being fat, and we should let them waddle amongst us as if they're real people with brains and souls.

She's a dancin' fool.

In one of her latest installments, the odobenus expert and adiposity apologist decided she would rail against the media's portrayal of Type II diabetes as a land whale related issue:

"An ABC news online report today lead with the line “Half of all American adults are destined to develop diabetes or pre-diabetes by 2020 if they don’t slim down….” It goes on to talk about the “diabesity epidemic”
While I applaud the portmanteau, I have to come down against horrible, irresponsible, unprofessional reporting.
Being overweight doesn't cause diabetes. I know that because the American Diabetes Association says on their website:
Myth: If you are overweight or obese, you will eventually develop type 2 diabetes.
Fact:  Being overweight is a risk factor for developing this disease, but other risk factors such as family history, ethnicity and age also play a role. Unfortunately, too many people disregard the other risk factors for diabetes and think that weight is the only risk factor for type 2 diabetes.  Most overweight people never develop type 2 diabetes, and many people with type 2 diabetes are at a normal weight or only moderately overweight.
Correlation is not causation. The fact that two things happen at the same time doesn’t mean that they cause each other.  It’s quite possible that both things are caused by a third factor, or that they are unrelated.  For example studies are starting to show that, in countries where there is no stigma on obesity, there aren’t negative health outcomes of obesity.  More studies are needed to determine if the constant shame, stigma and guilt faced by obese people in the other cultures causes the health issues, or if it’s something else, or if causality can actually be linked to weight" (Chastain).
That's really her, and I did not add the music myself.  This actually happened.  In real life.

Ah, how lovely it must be to rest one's fat ass on that favorite  adage of the lazy pseudointellectual, "correlation does not equal causation," and utilize it to justify a horrendous and pathetic lifestyle centered around claiming to love the cellulite on your face.  Apparently, our fat-bodied, troglodytic shit pile of an author ran out of rage and Twinkie fueled steam before she could type out "diabetes obesity correlation" into Pubmed, because science bends this fat bitch over and blindly searches for a hole before giving up in disgust and just rapes her face with a broken bottle dusted with cayenne pepper.

"In a nationally representative sample of US adults, the prevalence of diabetes increases with increasing weight classes. Nearly one fourth of adults with diabetes have poor glycemic control and nearly half of adult diabetics are considered obese suggesting that weight loss is an important intervention in an effort to reduce the impact of diabetes on the health care system" (Nguyen).  That statement would appear to definitively and decisively contradict, though it doesn't explain why the correlation exists.  Luckily, another study does- high levels of a molecule called retinol-binding protein 4 leads to insulin resistance, and those high levels are found in obese people (Moraes-Vieira PM).  The human body treats RBP4 like a foreign invader and wrecks havoc on the body's adaptive immune system, causing systemic inflammation, insulin resistance (which of course leads to more fatness), and eventually diabetes.  In short, getting obese can pretty much turn your body into a runaway train of sadness and fatness... and zombification.

Yes, zombification.  You see, the obese suffer from ailments of which most of us cannot conceive.  For instance, health care professionals often find random things hidden in the panniculi (the pocket underneath a fat fold) of obese patients.  I asked a nurse friend to ask her friends what they'd found in panniculi, and here was the list a few of them compiled (Facebook):

  • Half of a sandwich
  • Pill bottle-still full.
  • Pack of cigarettes
  • Cockroach
  • Remote control from home she'd been looking for "for over a month"
  • A whole, king-size Snicker
  • Furry green object that later determined to be a half eaten cheese sandwich
  • Bugs
  • Creamy yellow yeast build-up from candidiasis
  • Maggots
  • Hershey's chocolate bar with the foil packaging decaying and stuck to the skin, discovered when an unusual rectangular opacity showed up on chest X-ray
  • Teaspoon 
  • Teabag
  • Lemon Drop candies
  • $20 bill
  • Raven .25 auto (though it was under a pancake tit, not a pannus)
  • Peppermint candies, "to help with the smell"
  • Hidden tattoos
  • Bag of Lays chips, half eaten "and growing into skin lollipop"
  • Straws
  • Utensils 
  • Sugar packets
This is a grade 3 panniculus.  They go up to grade 5, however.  You don't want to see grade 5.

You see, not only do these subhumans like to sit in their dank basement apartments pretending to be Galactus while their pile of double-down sandwiches represents our solar system, but they enjoy being filthy, disease-ridden piles of slowly-rotting adipose tissue covered in open sores... much like zombies.  And no, I don't mean filthy in the way I'm filthy, the "that sucked when I got pink eye because that chick missed my mouth and squirted diarrhea in my eye filthy", because I bathe on a daily basis.  We're talking about people who will not move for so long their skin becomes fused to toilets, fused to couches,  and fused to recliners- people who are so incredibly unwashed they live in their own shit and piss for years without bathing.

I circled the maggots for you.  You're quite welcome.

Luckily for them, they can't feel the maggots crawling around on them because with type two diabetes, a condition of damage to sensory nerves results, known as peripheral neuropathy.  Basically, they're like Adam Sandler in Mr. Deeds, capable of having their feet beaten to a bloody pulp with a hammer and wouldn't notice a thing.  Well, they'd be like Adam Sandler in Mr. Deeds if Sandler gained 200 lbs and gave up on life to the point where showering was a daunting task and a 12 hour, 20 minute finish in a marathon- at a whopping 1.55mph- would be considered a triumph.  While you might be channelling your inner Daniel Tosh and asserting that the incapability of feeling pain would make you well-nigh a superhero, in the land whale population, it's actually the opposite- this is what precipitates the actual rotting portion of the zombification that the excess fat began in the the fatties brains (if you don't feel like clicking, low intelligence correlates strongly with obesity).

Frankly, she'd be in bad shape even for a zombie.

Here's where fat people become imminently more disgusting, and I'm sure a great many of you will climb aboard the ol' Pain Train to shout epithets our our burgeoning population of rotting, corpulent land beasts- these, disgusting, unwashed, waddling ocular assaults have what is known in the scientific world as "shitty skin integrity."  In essence, they're literally falling apart.  Common skin conditions among the obese are:

  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers- "Almost 24 million adults in the United States have diabetes, and obesity is one of the main risk factors for Type II diabetes" (Lowe).  About 15% of these slowly apirating cesspits of adiposity with the fat beetus (Type 2 diabetes) have diabetic foot ulcers and are the most common reason for diabetic patient admission to hospitals.  Slap a bandaid on it and sally forth, you say?  Nah, bro- you forget these failure piles aren't humans and lack human immune systems.  A foot ulcer in a diabetic land whale results in osteomyelitis, amputation, or death because they're so fucking ill and filthy that normal antibiotics often fail to quell a simple skin infection (Ibid).
"You know a doctor or a podiatrist has to cut the toenails on a diabetic patient?  RN's can't even do it, and they don't recommend the patient's do it themselves.  Because one little wound from accidentally cutting off too much nail and breaking the skin can spiral into a shitstorm of ulcers, zombie-foot, and amputation.  Oh!  Sometimes toes are so rotted and dead that they will just fall off in the patients bed!  Yay!"- A nurse friend who wants to keep her job and so contributed anonymously.
  •  Venous Insufficiency Ulcers- This is a condition in which the hideous shitpiles cannot force enough blood into their massive, distended extremities to support life.  Before anyone leaps to the defense of the fat on this, there is "a significant association between BMI and increased clinical severity of chronic venous disease" (Ibid).  It's not just a venous disease thing- the fatties have such shitty epididimal integrity that any reduction in blood flow basically results in these sorry motherfuckers' bodies falling apart (ibid).
  • Lymphedema- This fun-filled spectacle is the result of impaired lymph drainage, which causes swelling of the limbs, bacterial infections, and thickening of the skin (Ibid).  When this occurs, the skin cracks, infection sets in, and out comes the bone saw.  
  • Intertrigo- For those of you who squat as often as I do and have extreme thigh hypertrophy, you're aware that baby powder is a necessity if you're going to be walking any real distance.  Fat people, apparently, can't be bothered, and suffer from intertrigo, which are skin folds that retain heat and moisture as the result of friction between skin surfaces.  Prepare to heave up your last meal, as "frequent sites of intertrigo are skin folds and areas that retain heat and moisture such as: posterior neck, axilla, under breasts, under pannus, perineal area, and inner thighs" (Ibid).  If you didn't catch that, it's common under fat folds, man titties, the taint, the armpit, AND THE BACK OF THE NECK.  That shit results in inflammation, liquification of the skin, and skin erosion, in addition to the standard bone-saw attracting infections.
Let there be cleanse.
  • Psoriasis- We've all seen commercials for psoriasis, and they don't feature humanoid Jabba the Huts.  This is called "false advertising", because there's a stark "correlation between obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular risk and psoriasis" (Ibid).  So, we can add skin redness and irritation to their list of ailments.
  • Perineal Dermatitis- Oh joy!  As if they weren't filthy enough, fatties are often incontinent, which gives them infections of their taint skin... because they can't be bothered to wipe after they shit or piss themself.
  • Pressure Ulcers- Perhaps the most disgusting thing on the list, these overstuffed halfwits manage to get so fat that the weight of their skin pressing on other skin causes the underlying skin to die from lack of blood flow.  Frankly, of all of the impossible shit on thsi list, this seems the hardest for me to wrap my considerable intellect around, because even when I've gone hogging I've never fucked a chick so fat or immobile that such a condition could occur.  Apparently, however, it occurs, and it's a common cause of necrosis in fat people... or should we just start calling them zombies?  If they're simply rotting alive, don't notice it, and are simply driven by the urge to keep eating and do nothing else, calling the obese zombies seems appropriate.

Not sure if this is a pic hospital in North Carolina during the Civil War or from last week.  It's one or the other... or both.

Lest you think that the whine of the bone saw isn't as frequent as I've suggested, think again.  Hospitals these days, especially in the American South, are turning into Civil War battlefield hospitals, and lopping off off gangrenous limbs is an all-too-frequent occurrence where the diabetic adipose-abundant are concerned.  Sure, people who aren't disgusting fatasses dripping with type II diabetes get shit amputated as well... at a rate eight times lower than that of the fatties (Johannson).  And if you think that diabetes-related amputations aren't all that frequent, think again- "diabetes-related amputation per 10,000 persons with diabetes in 1991 was 95.25 in African-Americans, 55.98 in non-Hispanic whites, and 44.43 in Hispanics," and the incidence of type II diabetes has more than doubled in the last 20 years (Johannesson, AFP).  Though those statistics don't differentiate between the diabetes types, the nurses I surveyed estimated that the rate of amputation for Type II to Type I was greater than 20:1, due in large part to the fact that Type II diabetes in the US is generally the result of poor diet, lack of exercise, and generally being a useless, worthless, contemptible piece of shit, and the fact that Type II diabetes accounts for 90-95% of the diabetes in the United States (AFP).

In short, the segment of the population identified as obese is a vacuous, filthy, diabetic, maggot-infested, slowly rotting group of selfish and useless individuals who are systematically reducing modern medicine to Civil War standards and practices by making the the bone saw one of the most important ER surgery tools and who are placing an undue strain on society as a whole.  While I will stop short of advocating genocide, I wouldn't suggest taking some drastic measures would be out of the question- if whale oil can fuel lamps, be used to create soap, and provide humanity with a non-toxic alternative to transmission fluid, it seems we could easily find a use for the obese.  Given that we've established they're stupid, terrible drivers, filthy, diseased, worthless sacks of shit, we might as well find some use for them, even if it's just in death.


A short addendum from an RN:
"It would be awesome, but nigh impossible, to find data re: money / hours / productivity lost secondary to obesity.  E.g., some patients have to be manually turned, side to side every 2 hours, while in bed. For a normal sized person that takes one or two RNs. For a walrus it takes 4 or 5 (or more). Every two hours.  For a normal pt it takes only 1 RN to insert a foley catheter. Fatties = 4 or more: one each to hold the legs back/open, 1 or 2 to hold back the pannus, 1 to aim the flashlight, and 1 to insert.Bigger wheelchairs, bigger beds, bigger bed sheets, more medication (antibiotics are fire weight-based)"

  1. Holy Christ, what a list. Those corpulent lay-abouts are even worse than vegans. This is one of my favorite series of articles. I can't stand lazy people & the lengths to which they'll go to justify their state of deplorability never fails to disgust me. HAES is the only thing worse than the Fat Dancer. What in the Hell has our society come to? Sizism, ageism, fit-shaming...all trumpeted by the sad & weak. To the camps I say.

  2. Damn, who is the chick so graciously providing the pre-emptive eye wash?

    1. Erica Campbell, then Alexis Texas, then Bailey Jay.

  3. In Scotland we have apparently spent about £800,000 making doors wider in hospitals for fat people. And that's just Scotland (population only 5 million) How fat do you have to be to not fit through a fucking door? And this is the NHS so that is taxpayer money. If these people don't even respect themselves enough not to become hideously obese then why should we all be forced to respect them?

    Also Belgium have appointed a new Minister of Public Health...she weighs 280lbs and someone though it was a good idea to put her in charge of the public's health.

    (Stones weight measurement in the UK. There are 14 pounds in a stone.)

    1. I read she weighs over 280... I'd say she's pushing 300 lbs.

  4. That's the most disgusting thing I've read all month. I was about to stop reading then I got to that hot chick with the great ass being slammed. Good choice!! ����

  5. Man did you HAVE to throw the tranny in there? Decaying flesh not enough?

    1. Of course? What do you think this is, T-Nation? Tgirl porn is good for you. You're welcome! :P

    2. You'd think a site called T-Nation would have MORE trannies...

    3. Yo, don't be hating on Bailey.

  6. All that I can say is " Good God man, have some level of decency!!!) . I can't believe it, but after seeing the fat chicks website, the tranny looked hot. Great.

    1. Hey, we've all gotten a little speedy, had a couple too many, and then made out with a crazy hot chick, only to feel something hard and warm pressing on our leg. It happens. I'm just trying to prepare you for the inevitable.

  7. Oh, I almost forgot.............."Black is the White of my EYE!!!!!!!!!!"

  8. Goddamn I love Alexis Texas! "Fat chicks need love too... but they gotta pay!"

  9. Pretty sure "Goerge" is spelled "George".

  10. probably the most fucked juxtapose i have ever experienced, however, I just drank a bottle of Rex Goliath, C'est la vie.

  11. Great article I know (of) a nurse that started her own mobile Diabetic Care service where her employees drive vans loaded with diabetic medical (wound-care etc.) supplies to the homes I those too "sick" to leave their homes. She making quite a living

  12. This comment has been removed by the author.

  13. Remember that fat fuck that got killed in the movie Se7en? This fat dancer needs the same treatment - except instead of spaghetti she can be force-fed tinfoil and drain cleaner.

  14. This article fits with the whole "asshole" character, but as a libertarian it seems odd to be getting all hateful about people fcuking up their own bodies. That's their business.

    As for the really extreme cases, these people are sick like the way alcoholics are sick.Or at best, they're dealing with a bunch of poor life choices and psychological proclivities in a stupid, maybe delusional way. Certainly the fact that they're "stupid" is a pretty simplistic explanation.

    It'd be interesting to hear if, as a person, your not-an-internet-character response to their illness and associated suffering is different to the response here (which is written to make fun reading).
    That said, there's much better articles you could've written than hating on folk for an illness or a personal weakness.

    OP above talking about *killing* a woman cos she's dealing with her illness (even if that illness is just tragically poor self control) in a way different to how he would is pretty bogus. And it's not witty. It's just 13-year-old-kid on the internet thinking someone's impressed cos he's saying something "shocking".

    1. A key component of libertarianism is actually having to face the consequences of your "lifestyle". I work first hand with all kinds of people that make poor "lifestyle choices" including alcoholics, drug addicts, obese and whatever else. Speaking only about the population I deal with, I can assure you that losing a limb is of less consequence to them than having to change their lifestyle. It sounds fucked up, it is fucked up, but I'm not exaggerating. Their lifestyle is only further supported afterwards by social programs that they now qualify for. So in the real world those of us who pay our bills and taxes are faced with a higher burden so they can continue their chosen lifestyle. Regardless of why they make poor life choices, they are still choices. These are pictures of people who have made those choices day in and day out for decades, not much different than a smoker who gets lung cancer. It would be more "their business", and less hate, if we all didn't have to share the consequences.

    2. Yyyyeah. When someone's actually rotting and immobile, I think we all have to acknowledge that their "choice" to eat in an unhealthy way is a little different to you or I choosing whether or not to have a second scoop of icecream. Something's going wrong there for them and the appropriate response is compassion not getting mad at them.
      As for financial contributing okay ish, but it;s odd that we have this rage for fat people and not smokers or drunk drivers or motorcross riders or rugby players.
      And for that matter it's odd that the same sort of anger doesn't come out against corporate welfare recipients, corporate tax dodgers and so on, cos we're for shit sure paying their way as well...

    3. Yeah, there has to be some mental illness in someone who would sit on a couch until it fused with their skin. No one with a healthy mind would choose that. Then again the fact that there is actually an 800 pound man who realized one day that he probably shouldn't be 800 pounds and started losing weight suggests it is possible to overcome.

    4. Give me a break. Compassion? Please. That sounds like something an enabler would say. Who are, in fact, the ONLY reason someone can get so fat they can't move, and stay that way. They brought their obesity upon themselves. Why would anyone feel sorry for them? Our society's priorities and values are all out of order. And it is weak and devoid of pride and any sort of honor. Enough with the excuses. It's usually not mental illness, it's sloth and weakness. Oh no wait, obesity is a disease... Yeah, sure it is.

    5. I really can't imagine someone being so lazy that they actually get to that weight without suffering some mental illness, but I suppose I can't prove it. And they do need compassion, but compassion doesn't always have to be "aww, look at you trying to become the world's fastest man." It can also be "damn it, you're better than all this horseshit, now get your ass up and run around till you're not a fatass."

    6. I don't see it as an illness, bro- it's a weakness of character. Frankly, I don't give a shit if someone's 700 lbs so long as they keep their failure away from me and it costs society at large nothing. When nurses are throwing their backs out moving these people, though, and they're screaming about how we should love them anyway, I take issue.

      And trust me, I hate the 1%ers far more than fat people.

    7. I don't think compassion is a weakness, but misplaced compassion is nothing more than a bleeding heart and you will get taken advantage of. Ask anyone in the healthcare industry(that makes actual pt contact, not fucking lab rats or policy makers) and they will tell you that slothful people are among the most demanding. They take up the most of your time and energy and they are the first one's to complain. I'm talking every form of sloth not just obesity.

    8. You two said exactly what I meant about compassion. I also work with many people who make poor choices on a regular basis. Everything Matthew said is exactly how many of my experiences have gone. Sloths want everything and will give nothing. The obese catch so much hate for several reasons (obviously my opinion). One, their condition is completely self-inflicted, wholly preventable and reversible, and they are basically wasting food to be fat as hell. Two, it seems like it is a natural human reaction to be repulsed by a huge tub of lard. Not to mention the wheezing, sweating for no reason, and stench that go with very obese people. Three, they are always whining about BS like "thin privilege" and complaining that the world was not made to accommodate them. In addition to the aforementioned widened doorways, they now have to make ambulances that are basically U-Haul trucks. Wtf? How much worse does this shit need to get?

  15. I read tha Violet Eyes gave up being a nurse because she couldn't stand the smell ofold lady breast cheese

  16. someone commented above about hospitals having to install extra wide door frames to get the gurneys through the doors. In our hospital they've changed the toilets out so they can accommodate a heavier patient (400+ pounds). Then they reinforced the ceiling using a motorized crane and pulley on a track system to move the patient from a laying to sitting position powered by a remote control. It looks like something you'd find in a factory to move an engine. I'm sure there is a youtube video of one.

    Those necrotic feet are the worst smell ever. That and fat women UTI smell are probably the only things that make me gag horribly. Their urine smells like tuna baking out in the sun for days. Words cannot adequately describe that putrid stench. I have to wear a mask when taking care of them so they dont see me dry heaving.

    I like your friend's list. I had a patient whom I was assessing and found a half eaten twinkie under her folds. She told me her and her boyfriend liked to play a sex game of hide and go seek with twinkies under her fat. Take that in for a moment. lol.

    1. Seriously? Couldn't they just use a bed pan? The obese person doesn't have to get out of bed and the poor toilet doesn't have to be crushed to death. I guess the nurses would have to change it though, but emptying a shit bucket seems less horrible than fishing moldy rotten sandwiches out of their fat rolls.
