Fat camps for the unemployed obese

    There are about 14 million unemployed in America and many of those are the typical fat couch potatoes. To get them back into work and a nicer lifestyle I propose special camps are set up near all major urban populations.

    Not as sadistic army training camps but as pleasant, take your time camps. No nasty drill sargeant types yelling abuse down the earhole but more a relaxed atmosphere of progress at your own pace. Some would have to learn to walk before they could run.

    To encourage those of a large and wobbly bits bodies to volunteer then benefits would be withdrawn if they don't enlist. Once in the camp they have weekly checks and are colour coded as to their situation. Perhaps jump suits of the colours of the spectrum. On completing the course i.e. their weight is down to normal proportions they are allowed to go home.

    The local authorites would have a pool of volunteer labour when needed to help out and so at least contribute something of use while slimming. The costs of health care would be drastically cut. Altogethor a happy experience of win win.

    Or do you defend some idiotic principle of free personal decisions and let them kill themselves early ?
  2. You could have a fat person pull a rickshaw while "chasing" a slice of pizza that is dangling from a fishing line. :D

    Now that's a thought. Might have to set a speed limit.

  4. In the grand scheme of things aren't we all pulling a rickshaw?

    Only difference is what is dangling on the end of the fishing line. Could be money, hookers and blow ...:cool:
