[Content Note: Violent fat hatred.]

Seen: This decal on the car parked beside us at the grocery store this weekend:

image of a window decal featuring the silhouette of a bear chasing two human silhouettes, one thin one in front and one fat one in back, for whom the bear is reaching, accompanied by text reading: 'BE NICE TO FAT PEOPLE: One day they may save your life.'

Just another bit of detritus strewn throughout my every day reminding me that lots of thin people think the thought of my being violently slaughtered is a totes hilarious punchline.

Also? I know plenty of fat runners who scoff in this decal's general direction.
