Whether it’s a diet cookbook, a membership to Public-Weigh-In-Watchers, a “health food” delivery service or something else that we didn’t ask for, giving fat people the gift of judgment is some bullshit – at the holiday season or any other time. If you want to tell your family members that you’d legitimately rather just get socks, or if you just want to commiserate, this song is for you!
PS: If this has happened to you, feel free to tell us about it in the comments and we’ll commiserate with you.
PSS: If you’re thinking of giving a gift like this JUST DON’T!
