    Noo!! That is possibly the meanest, cruellest PAN I have ever seen. I blame Puritan culture – after all, these are the people who banned Christmas before we kicked them out of the UK….

    It’s not even correct – just because cupcakes (can) make us fat doesn’t mean they don’t make us happy in the process!

      I really don’t think this has anything to do with Puritans. Busybody a-holes who think they know how to run your life better than you do are universal problem and a driving force behind every government in existence.

      Amen. Let fat people enjoy their lives…half of what makes living and being fat hard is because everything is designed for skinny people.

      Don’t be stupid. Just as their are diseases, medical conditions, and medications that can cause weight gain there are others that can cause weight loss: cancer, diabetes, malabsorption disorders, etc.

      I’m told that in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, when Veruca demands a “bean feast,” she’s saying she wants to eat a ton of donuts, and it’s called a bean feast because doing that will give you massive farts.

    Wow these people policing other people’s choices…I just don’t get them.

    I bet if someone had brought in a cheese platter they wouldn’t have said anything…but hey here’s some news – eating too much of pretty much anything can make you gain weight.

    But who gives a crap…no one has the right to tell anyone else to what to do or not do (unless their hurting others) and as Gene so kindly pointed out – it’s very possible to be fat and happy.

      It should be possible to be fat and happy, but it’s definitely not in this society. Fat people are continually punished for being fat.

      Just 50 extra calories a day adds up to 5 pounds of extra weight per year. Really, with the increase in portion size and the tendency to socialize around food (where there is always pressure to eat more), no wonder everyone is gaining weight. It’s just so easy.

      I started gaining when I had a job where I often ended up at Starbucks for Wifi time. I felt I needed to order something, so those extra calories began to show.

      People look down on you when you are heavy, and they also put pressure on you when you try to order something small. “Did you get enough? You barely ate anything.” You can’t win.

    • #8.3   Dr_Know

      I still maintain that it is possible to be fat and happy – you just have to not give a shit what other people think. Of course people will put other people down for anything but a few ignorant people aren’t going to stop me from saying I happy.

      It’s like saying it’s not possible to be happy and thin (because you sometimes get called a rake)…being upset about that doesn’t make you not happy in general.

      Hmm it’s late…I hope that made sense.

    Well based on the fact two cupcakes have been eaten, we can deduce that two people are happy at least. And perhaps a little bit fatter. But probably more happier than fatter. ;)

    Your butt is wide, well mine is too
    Just watch your mouth or I’ll sit on you
    The word is out, better treat me right
    ‘Cause I’m the king of cellulite
    Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat, all right

    My zippers bust, my buckles break
    I’m too much man for you to take
    The pavement cracks when I fall down
    I’ve got more chins than Chinatown

    Well, I’ve never used a phone booth
    And I’ve never seen my toes
    When I’m goin’ to the movies
    I take up seven rows

    Because I’m fat, I’m fat, come on
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, come on you know
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    Don’t you call me pudgy, portly or stout
    Just now tell me once again who’s fat

    When I walk out to get my mail
    It measures on the Richter scale
    Down at the beach I’m a lucky man
    I’m the only one who gets a tan
    If I have one more pie a la mode
    I’m gonna need my own zip code

    When you’re only having seconds
    I’m having twenty-thirds
    When I go to get my shoes shined
    I gotta take their word

    Because I’m fat, I’m fat, sha mone
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it you know
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    And my shadow weighs forty-two pounds
    Lemme tell you once again who’s fat

    If you see me comin’ your way
    Better give me plenty space
    If I tell you that I’m hungry
    Then won’t you feed my face

    Because I’m fat, I’m fat, sha mone
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it, you know
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)
    Woo woo woo, when I sit around the house
    I really sit around the house

    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, come on

    You know I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it, you know it
    (Fat, fat, really really fat)

    Yeesh, what a hater! I mean, yeah, eating the whole box of cupcakes and sitting on your a** all day, every day, WILL inevitably lead to undesirable personal growth (unless the person in question has the metabolism of a hummingbird). One cupcake – maybe two, if it’s your birthday and the calories don’t count anyway – will not, in and of itself, make anyone fat.

    If one cupcake makes your a$$ fat then you need to hit the gym, because their is no way one special occasion snack will bloat a healthy person getting enough excercise. Sound like the note writer needs to get a personal trainer if one cupcake scares them that much.

    Oh, for…

    Look, Fitness Junkies. Some of us would rather be happy than make ourselves miserable swimming upstream. You go on about your masochism and leave us terrible fatties alone.

    Leave us to our happy-inducing cupcakes. As others have said, one cupcake isn’t going to blow your figure completely if you get enough exercise. So GET OVER IT.
