The irony...

is crushing...

I saw a morbidly obese young girl, maybe 12 or 13 years old, entering a restaurant with her family, wearing a tank-top that read:

YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR FUTURE

In all sincerity, good luck with that. You're going to need it.

Was she also smoking a cigarette while banging some smack with a dirty needle?

Sounds like a lethal level of irony there, I hope you're OK!

Lethal level is right... sigh... and obviously the 'parents' saw nothing wrong!

I'll be optimistic and say she just finished a health camp and was going to make better choices when ordering her meal!

Blondie, thanks for the different (and more hopeful) perspective. I needed it!

Was it wrong of me to laugh at this post ?
Well, I felt guilty about it right after. Letting a young child get that big is a hallmark of piss-poor parenting.

Kevin, unless there's some underlying medical condition, I totally agree with you.

And of course it's okay for you to laugh!
