Things that struck me on reading this Observer article yesterday:

  1. Businessman hired to be hard-nosed and callous on TV lives up to stereotype shocker! (I am not sure how good the “It’s his job to be a knob” argument actually is, but it tends to stop me getting too exercised over these kind of ‘outbursts’)
  2. OK the stereotype that fat people are lazier than thin people is k-stupid BUT I can’t actually talk, it’s certainly true of me.
  3. Anyway won’t the invisible fat hand of the market prove or disprove Mr Dragon’s theory as his rivals hire the talented fattXoRs and gain the fruits of their labours?
  4. Haha the main obesity lobby organisation is called TOAST!
  5. Erm hold on isn’t saying “If you are obese you have a self-esteem problem” just as stereotyped and probably MORE harmful than saying “If you are obese you are lazy”?
  6. OMG how bad an idea is calling your pressure group that?
