60. Humiliation has never resulted in weight loss...or anything good that I can think of.

Obesity is a complex problem....partly a fat gene, partly bad lifestyle, partly addiction. Every time an obese person looks in a mirror, he sees an incentive to lose weight. But he cannot.

So this added humiliation and fee for excess baggage will do nothing to spur weight loss.

Next we'll be lining up the overweight kids at school into the "fat line" for lunch, making them pay extra. Maybe we should have the fat kids sit in the back of the classroom, since they may obstruct the view if they sit in the front.

Fat people should pay more to ride the bus, and taxis.

Fat people should pay more for potato chips, since chips contribute to obesity.

We can make a lot of money off of fat people, now that I think of it.
