Link: Family who are 'too fat to work' say £22,000 worth of benefits is not enough - Telegraph
Transformers are expensive though.
Om nom nom imma eat me these benefits.
Simple answer? Stop eating, you'll save money and either lose the weight and be able to work or starve to death.
Either way, it's getting your fat arses off my tax bill.
This will probably sound extremely insensitive, but people like that shouldn't be getting benefits, period. The whole "it's not our fault, our weight is hereditary" defense is pure bs. I'm fat, yet I don't think it's due to other people in my family being fat, because I know that isn't the reason.
I used to work with a girl who was overweight. Her mother and sister were also overweight. Two years ago she tried to get on social security disability and she had a lawyer and everything.
The judge refused and told her if she would lose weight, she will feel a lot better.
What job do they have that their weight keeps them from working? Are they too fat to sit at a desk all day? Cause I'm sure there's plenty of those jobs floating around...
You're not fat, you're big boned
Oh god, man the harpoons.
Also, the dad's hair makes him look like a middle-aged Oompa Loompa. This pleases me.
Agreed. In the US I'm pretty sure you have to be much larger to get benefits. From that pic, none of them seem too big to do any number of jobs.
Being Fat is not an excuse not to work. Im fat and I work so why cant they? Cause there lazy. Also I try to exercise every day, it seems that bunch doesn't even try.
I also hope this thread doesn't turn into a fat joke thread.Cause there pretty lame.
I was under the impression that being obese is not a reason for disability UNLESS you are also diagnosed with a mental depression of somesort. But, these people want to try and blame their genes. Sorry, but you can't be fat if you don't eat enough calories. Your body isn't going to create matter from nothing. These people can excersize and choose not to. The girls excuse about being a student is ridiculous.
On the bright side, they aren't claiming to be big boned.
On a serious note, I find this completely bullshit. Asking for more money to enjoy their vice of food is ridiculous. I laugh at the excuse of student for not getting exercise. Stop gorging yourself with food and start exercising.
Damn, beat me to this. I actually wanna say that the dad looks like Don Vito from Viva La Bam.
Very True, I have a Thyroid Disease which makes it hard for me to lose weight but I lose small amounts over long periods of times.
im a big guy also and i work all the time. the comment where she says that shes a student and cant find time to work BS!!!! I work a full time job and go to school also. So lame that they just cant say i am a lazy ass and do not want to work. Pissed off that my tax money pays for this crap in the US..
Fuck them. They can work. Just every other fat person.
they're just fat stupid pigs. try having a real illness, like something that can't be cured by healthy eating and exercise.
If they're so fat, why don't they go on some diet/exercise routine? Or try out for the Biggest Loser...
Richard Simmons should beat their asses
