Fellow comedian and blogger Josh Goguen alerted me that a recent episode of Stossel dealt with obesity and the food police. I recorded the episode, took a few clips, and added some comments in the form of subtitles and some Fat Head clips.
I actually find MeMe Roth more annoying than the sue-happy lawyer. This is a woman who is obviously naturally thin. She was born on the finish line and thinks she won a race. So now she feels justified in telling other people how to eat, and in criticizing pretty much every overweight person in the public eye. (You may recall when she proclaimed American Idol contestant Jordin Sparks a bad role model because of her size.)
My advice: never take advice on losing weight from anyone who’s never had to work at it. They have no flippin’ clue what they’re talking about.
