Funny Old Friday: Fat Jokes

In general, I don’t like fat jokes.  I find them mean, and not very funny.  For example, I liked Austin Powers, but the I find the scene where Fat Bastard admits that he “eats because [he’s] sad, and [he’s] sad because [he] eats” to just be kind of depressing.

That said, I’m fairly strongly of the belief that anything can be funny, in the right context.  Certainly, I’ve seen, heard, and even written some pretty funny stuff (if I do say so myself) around much darker subjects.  So, I must have heard a funny fat joke at some point.  Do you know one?  Tell it here!

Yo mama jokes don’t count.  Yo mama jokes are always funny.



I might have just made one on Twitter:

HMXCasey: What does it say about me that two of my favorite songs in the whole world are “Fat Bottomed Girls” and “Whole Lotta Rosie?”

androidqueen: @HMXCasey More importantly, what does it say about the ladies whose company you keep?

I mean, it’s not the funniest thing I’ve ever said (I hope), but I think it still leans toward “mildly amusing” rather than “hurtful and stupid.”   Of note, Hannah played along.

Also: Speaking of Hannah, I’m going to see Oceans 2 tonight at ImprovBoston!  You should too!
