Fat Quotations

This is what people don't understand: obesity is a symptom of poverty. It's not a lifestyle choice where people are just eating and not exercising. It's because kids - and this is the problem with school lunch right now - are getting sugar, fat, empty calories - lots of calories - but no nutrition.
Tom Colicchio

I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.
Rodney Dangerfield

Little white lies are part of everyday life. If you're in court being charged with a felony, you're probably going to be tempted to lie. Or if your girlfriend asks you if the sweater she is wearing makes her look fat; you're going to lie because you love that person. There are different reasons and justifications to lie; it's human nature.
Monica Raymund

Thin people are beautiful, but fat people are adorable.
Jackie Gleason

It's simple, if it jiggles, it's fat.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
