Rolly Pollies

Research suggests that fat people aren't as jolly as we all would like to think. The study concluded that obesity is strongly linked to depression and other anxiety and mood disorders. Well DUH. Why did someone need to conduct a research study to find that out? Just head to a Sizzler and ask a bitch!

The study was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIHM)... yeah... like from The Secret of NIMH. Loves me some Mrs. Brisby!

Best quote from the article:
"The take-home message for doctors is to be on the lookout for depression among their patients who are overweight," Fenton said.

Instead of depression, the doctor should be looking out for "afternoon snacks" in the form of chicken wings stuck under a fold of fat.

If fat people aren't jolly, then how will we like them for their "great" personalities?
