So if you don’t live in Georgia you probably didn’t know that this existed, but it does. I noticed the ad for the first time today right in Atlanta not too far from my house. Some group of people thought it would be a great idea to put up giant billboards ridiculing fat children. I suppose to shame them and their parents into being more healthy. The billboards say things like “It’s hard being a little girl, when you’re not.”
I personally think the billboards are hilarious. Hilarious in the kind of way that a comedian is. That is one who has dove off the morality cliff, pushed over any sense of caring for others, but is so crude you can’t help but laugh. It’s like a train wreck and you can’t help but look at the destruction.
The funniest/worst part about these billboards is that someone had to actually sit around and think these things up AND put in the foot work to put them up and pay for them. Was there are large enough group of people that thought this was a good idea? Also, I want to know who the hell agreed to let their child pose for these damn signs and do these videos!
On a side note, I just read that Georgia has the 2nd highest child obesity rate in the country. We really do have a problem. Damn soul food and damn you Paula Dean.
Also, my wife, who is an art teacher for high school almost cried when she saw these videos. She said she sees fat kids get picked on (her brother is also obese) and it really hurts her. I guess I have to be careful not to let out a chuckle around her. These adds are too rediculous to be taken seriously…
