Systematic public humiliation

  [vote for,
against]

A special Olympic Games for the terminally obese.

Apart from categories like Fattest Human (Male, female, mxed doubles) there would be a range of demeaning events in which fatties would be encouraged to do funny stuff.

Water Javelin - lardarses attempt to evade, by swimming, a trained Japanese harpooner.

Chair-crushing.

Pie-eating.

Sumo wrestling.

.... and many other activities intended solely for the entertainment of the merely plump.

Sponsorship from Mcdonalds, Coca-Cola, Krispy Kreme, and Lindt.

       Thanks Ian, now my brain's stuck visualizing a sumo-wrestler orrery.   

       I will gladly contribute $5 towards the commissioning of such.

       Anorexics Unite, you have nothing to lose.   

       A companion Olympics for thin people for Jack Sprat to compete in, while his wife eats pie.   

       ----- pedia def. An orrery is a mechanical model of the solar system that illustrates or predicts the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons, usually according to the heliocentric model.

       I don't recall ever hearing the end of that story - wasn't somebody training to crawl into a storage tank and inspect it on a schedule, or something like that?
