Fat Fun for Fat Tuesday

A classic Weird Al video... Enjoy some Fat fun for Fat Tuesday.

I don't think it is very Christian to make fun of fat people, I don't hear anyone making fun at skinny people. Some fat people can't help it, it is not what they eat it is the way they are built.

Hi Edna, I'm sorry if your were offended by this video. That certainly isn't my intent. Weird Al does parodies of pop songs, and what he's making fun of here isn't fat people, it's the song "Bad" by Michael Jackson. In this case, he parodies not only the song, but the music video as well. As a person who has struggled with weight all my life, I simply find this (and most of Al's songs) funny, like blond jokes or jokes about computer nerds (again, I'm in both of those categories).

As for folks making jokes about skinny people, it's done all the time. I know people who are openly mocked and criticized for being too skinny, but that's just how God made them. It's not fun either way.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your opinion. I hope we can agree to disagree on this one. But again, please know that I truly do not mean offense to anyone.
