Yay...I am not fat, I am disabled

Look, I know I am fat.

I just can't say that I care to damn much.

But this one made me giggle.  Now the the lack of desire to push yourself away from the table may become a "disability".
Denmark has asked the European Court of Justice to rule on the case of a male childminder who says he was sacked for being too fat.
Two thing here backaroos.  One, the idea of a 350 pound male childminder kinda creeps me out.  Yes, I know, I know, but still in all.  I am 6-8 and push 400 after a snack.  I am fat and I know it.

But I don't think that I would be exactly appropriate as a childminder.  I scare the shit out of most kids.

The second is more subtle.  The physical requirements to hold most jobs don't require a BMI of 20.  Hell sitting at a desk like most jobs or watching a bunch of rug-rats doesn't require the body I had when I was playing football or playing skip-to-my-Lou in the jungle.

These folks hired the guy, firing him because he was fat was a shitty deal.

But a disability.
