Corpulent persons are being specially catered - if that's the right word - for on Brazilian trains by the installation of special chairs for local salad dodgers. The chairs (see above) are nearly twice as wide as normal chairs and can support a person weighing up to 550lbs and still not buckle under the weight. Above each supersized seat is an icon of a differently slim person and the legend 'priority seat for obese people'. Apparently takeup is disappointing as it is thought the punters are too embarrassed to use them.
Nick Griffin of the BNP is undoubtedly a horrible fat slug. Has anyone noticed the resemblance between him and Danny De Vito as 'Penguin' in Batman Returns? (Griffin is the one on the left)
