You know, if I was that fat I had to use a mobility scooter to go to the supermarket I wouldn't buy 12 pies, 2 big bags of sweets, 2 packets of crisps, and 9 chocolate bars when I got there.

News flash lady, buying a couple of packs of strawberries as well really won't undo that damage. Maybe next time buy less shit and more salad. Thumbsup

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

The savage Injuns settled here many thousands of years ago.

As far as we know the savage Vikings were next, landing in Newfoundland around 1,000 CE.

The savage English just got here a few hundred years ago. Big Grin

Bah 6 flags. Stand in like for 5 hours in the sweltering heat, pay $9 for a bottle of water and ride two roller coasters if you are lucky. Only time it's any good is if it is raining and nobody is left in the park.

Just want to point out that her whole cart full of twinkies, hohos, corn chips and the continued use of her medicaid scooter is probably cheaper than said salad.

True and unbelievably sad. I see it here all the time, it used to be they were for the elderly.

I try not to make judgements...I really do. But when I go to the store and see boxes (big family sized) of Kraft Mac and Cheese on sale for a buck and veggies are quadruple the price. I see why.

I have a good friend, who's fallen on really hard times -- she had to apply for food stamps. She's used to eating healthy -- she said what she recieved for a whole month would really last a couple of weeks if she bought only healthy foods. Thank goodness she said dried beans are super cheap.
