Obese ‘don’t want to lose weight’ says this plump BBC headline. “More than half of the 4,000 people polled were overweight or obese, but 26% of them said they did not want to lose weight.” It goes on to list various health advice, and the dangers associated with obesity: “Obesity is linked with an increased risk of bowel, kidney, oesophageal and stomach cancers, as well as cancer of the womb and breast cancer in post-menopausal women.”

I can see more headlines:

Alcoholics ‘want to keep drinking’

Bigots ‘convinced of own rectitude’

Old people ‘like to keep warm’

Scientists ‘shocked at human condition’

For some unknown and possibly chubby reason, this headline makes me deliriously happy. I know that it is not a politically correct reaction and is indeed exposing surrealist tendencies, but I keep on rolling around on the floor, chuckling, slapping my belly and yelling “chocolate! chips! fried eggs!”

Try it – I know you’ll like it!
