Fat people won't be served food in Mississippi, new law in works


By M&C Bizarre Feb 2, 2008, 16:18 GMT

A new bill would make it illegal for restaurants to serve the obese in Mississippi.

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

Mississippi is one of the most obesity plagued states in the U.S.

Bill No. 282, which can be viewed at the Smoking Gun website, is the work of three members of the state's House of Representatives, Republicans W. T. Mayhall, Jr. and John Read, and Democrat Bobby Shows.

The bill proposes that the state's Department of Health establish weight criteria after consultation with Mississippi's Council on Obesity. It does not detail what penalties an eatery would face if they serve a fat person a meal.

Who decides which patron is fat, or where the weight cut-off line is to be established was also unclear.

This won't pass!

And obesity is slowly becoming an issue here too.
No shortage of big guts here as well.
Of course, nothing like the U.S.A.

The US is getting so desperate that they are trying to interfere and control their citizens private lives. Imagine going to a resturant and being told that you can't eat there because you are too fat! I wonder if they can use a drive through to get round it.

We know that Obesity is way out of control in the US and the cost of healthcare is rising to epic levels! Their buffet, all that you can eat restaurants are very popular with no limit on how much you can gorge yourself. I once heard of a very large man been asked to leave by the manager because he had been up to the buffet one too many times filling his plate up to the hilt each time. (Was that you vic?)

What's next for US citizens? Banning morons, crippled, ugly or gay people? There would be no one left.

Soon we may see cameras in every US home so their governement can watch them.

Banning morons?, That'd mean you'd no longer be allowed in, ironic huh? Sometimes your own words can bite you in the a$$ if you're not careful. I'm happy this is one of those times, quite frankly!

#1.  Overweight and obesity is a " life style " modern disease affecting all over indulged and " rich " countries . China has her share of  " fatties " coming up . It is a result of the breaking of that simple formula  "  How much in : how much out " . Calories in , calories out ( exercise and activities ).

#2.  The USA leads the world in the junk food department unfortunately . The quantities served is beyond the pale . There is one ( that I heard of ) US restaurant which serves a huge / gigantic plate of food and the attraction is " If you can finish it , you don't pay " !?  This is criminal and irresponsible behavior in attracting dis-ease .

#3.  Men with central obesity  ( beer gut ) are prone to diabetes mellitus , hypercholesterolaemia , hypertension and heart problems .  They are all over the place on the footpath and the restaurants !

The global tragedy lies in this overfed, overindulged society in the midst of hunger and famine . Is there a god ?

I agree with mengzhi on point #1 and believe this problem will grow quickly as the Chinese population's wealth allows more Chinese to partake in fast food or takeaways , " The global tragedy lies in this overfed, overindulged society in the midst of hunger and famine " to think that this is still happening in this day and age is reprehensible .
There are no Ugly women , only those with low self esteem .
