Yesterday on the Today Show, Kathie Lee Gifford actually said,”Some would rather be depressed than obese, but you’re depressed anyway when you are when you are obese. “. It’s in the video from the NBC site below (after the commercial). Well, I take great offense to that! I’m the happiest person I know and I’m as fat as fat can be. Depressed my ass! What is wrong with her? What would I be depressed? People move out of my way in the buffet line!
Would you call Santa depressed? No, he’s a jolly fat man!
You know who is depressed, those skinny ass models who can’t eat! That’s who’s depressed. You ever see one of them smile? No, you have not because they can eat and smiling takes muscle power they don’t have because they don’t eat. It is a never-ending circle!
I demand that the Today Show makes Kathie Lee Gifford apologize for her insensitive and hurtful remarks! I demand a personal apology! How dare she call fat people depressed! We should all call them on Monday morning and demand our due as the heavyweights we are!
Obese People Unite! Big is Beautiful! I like big butts and I cannot lie. You other brothers cannot deny, well you get the idea. There’s nothing sadder than a fat, white woman trying to rap.
Hey, you gonna eat that?
For those of you without a sense of humor, I mean all of this in a humorous way. I have no issue with Kathie Lee Gifford’s statement. It is her opinion and I support her right to have one. It is a generalization that does have some truth, some overweight people are depressed – just like some skinny people are. It’s just the way things go.
I, also, wrote this late at night and I’m a little tired. It might not be as funny as I think it is right at the moment I wrote it. But, heck, it isn’t like Kathie Lee Gifford will read this and have her feelings hurt by it.
