From The Daily Telegraph:
LARGE-sized clothing should carry tags with an obesity helpline number, a British Medical Journal report has said.
The report, compiled by a group of public health professionals, has recommended the phone numbers be placed on tags on womens garments sized 16 and above, and on those with a waist measurement of more than 100 centimetres for men.
This is an excellent idea, chubby women will be reminded they need help everytime they struggle to get into their designer jeans.
The large-sized jeans should also have a large sign in the rear end that reads: If you see me at McDonalds or Burger King please call 800-FAT-COPS to report me.
Plus-size apparel should also be equipped with a gizmo that beeps everytime the rotund person backs up.
Instead of a cool designer logo, clothes for big people should have a trademark depicting Rosie ODonnell munching on a hamburger.
And it wouldnt be a bad idea to make all clothing for the horizontally-challenged in red only. That way we would see them coming from a distance, and be prepared to give them a wide berth.
Finally, pants for the obese should be rigged to emit a farting noise whenever the overweight individual bends over.
Im just kidding. Im just trying to show what a ridiculous idea the British came up with. Stout persons arent children, they dont need clothing with a name tag, or with an obesity helpline number.
What does 39.4 translate into pant size for men?
Ewwww, seeing that all covered up is bad enough!!!
Are they trying to encourage the obese to stop buying/wearing clothes?
I am walking in your boots, no thyroid.
I know what your body/mind is torturing you with.
Every year the "fake" synthroid gets upped in dose as some of us just soak it up.
Not to mention having to hear the radiologists whine every year for the mammo due to the thick spots the meds cause in your breasts.
People can be unkind and when my hormone/thyroid levels are off leaving me feel to high or low I stay away the heck from all the outside agitators.
Funny before I lost my thyroid I wore a size 3. SO if they are going to put a warning for large sizes suppose the should put one on the anorexic sizes.
JMO No warning at all should be on clothing except that it is cheap and won't last through one wash. : P
Merry Christimas.....your not alone.
I'll give you an Amen on that one too. I'm fighting the thyroid issues, and it's trying to kick my butt too. I've got my days, but most of the time, I ignore the meanies.
Looks like a double negitive...
True! Don't forget the warning tag "This article of clothing was probably made by cheap, child labor/slavery" - since we're getting so pious about everything!
No thyroid gland bump.
Man when that sucker is low that daily walk can be very painful as the "burn" in the muscle tissue as if one was running at full throttle can be horrid.
Then on the good dayz it is like being super hyper can't sit still woman. I like those dayz. : )
I have been buying Ulla Popken clothing for years now.
Real nice washablility.
However the styles of what only a 18yr old should sport the last two seasons have kept my pocket book closed.
I think it is a Europeon company.
I wonder if she read the back of her chair before she sat in it.
I had to magnify it to read it clearly.
