I'm a big fatass who's pretty healthy (aside from my fuckleg). Years ago, I knew a guy who's skinny as a rail, but is also a McDonald's franchise owner who eats his own product three times a day—and his blood pressure and cholesterol are off the charts.
Because of decades of faulty presumptions and prejudices about fatness, almost anyone would look at the two of us and think that I'm the one who's unhealthy.
I'm still the one whose headless body is most likely to end up in the news.
