THE CAMERA ALWAYS ADDS LIKE 10 POUNDS
wot never fails to crack me up.. everytime the news does some report on childhood obesity / adult obesity / cholesterol / carbs / atkins THIS / high protein THAT / wot'ever the fuck dietary involved.. they ALWAYS roll out the SAME dumb footage - closeups of fat stomachs, big butts, some lardo eating a HUUUUGE pile of chips, a messy burger, lardo and his equally lardo girlfriend all waddling along happily arm in arm, some pudgo bouncing into the ocean.. DAMN IT CRACKS ME UP..
its like, anytime they send a camera crew out to cover an ACTUAL news story.. they send out another crew to gather some more stock footage of "FAT PEOPLE IN THE MALL" (maaan, how much would THAT job suck?).. coz I swear, it's the SAME shopping mall each time.. it makes me wonder if there's this one HOTSPOT in Australia where they all go to feed.. FATTY GROUND ZERO.. where the gravity's just that LITTLE bit stronger..
it really IS a silly state of affairs we got now - it used to be that the RICH were the fat ones.. now, its the POOR (or should we say "TIME" POOR).. the rich can afford the personal trainers / dieticians / image consultants / personal gyms / any kinda freetime from their wageslave job to DO ALL THIS JUNK.. whilst the time poor are living in fear of wot'ever crazy escalating crime rate is reported out there on the streets.. rife with murderers and paedophiles and workplace accidents and YOU COULD BE NEXT!! living in paranoia of going outdoors.. sitting inside their fat bubble home entertainment coccoon rotting away with their drivethru takeaway.. too scared to think.. so, they follow the adverts.. and they CONSUME!!! BUY MORE!! EAT MORE!! MORE MORE!! AUUAUAUAUAUAHHH!!
with one hand they feed us all this JUNK..
with the other they mock with that wacky stock footage of fatty's down at the mall.. LOOK AT WOT WE'VE CREATED!! QUICK.. BUY MORE JUNK TO MAKE IT STOP!!!
makes ya wonder wot the HELL kinda freaky reality actually exists out there? beyond the statistics.. beyond the advertising.. beyond the wall to wall propaganda.. beyond the airbrushing and CGI..
hmmm.. just a thought..
