Fat hate LOLcat

Filed under: fat acceptance — worthyourweight @ 7:18 pm

I find LOLcats sometimes amusing, sometimes banal. The one above? There’s nothing LOL about it.

Fat jokes require less wit and skill than knock-knock jokes. Fat joke tellers — including professional comedians — you’re all hacks!

[See Creamy Nougat Lair‘s post today for an actual funny LOLcat]

  1. Um, yeah… not LOL at all. This is the same thing I’m always complaining about on sitcoms, where you don’t need to even do your job and write a joke when fat people are on the screen. You just point and laugh and say “Look! Fat! Unattractive! Diabetes! Out of breath!” and that’s all there is to it. The utter laziness is what infuriates me. The person that “made” this LOLcat can be fairly confident that they’ll get a bunch of laughs from fat-haters over it, and they didn’t even have to think hard (or really at all) to come up with it. Awesome.

    And that kitty is adorable. She may have weight-related health problems, she may not, but just on the face of it she is so cute.

  2. I find a lot of lolcats very funny. Though I think I usually see only the best of them because I see them only compiled at Ebaums. This one? It’s not funny at all. I mean, even if I knew nothing about FA, were skinny, and believed everything the media says about fat, it wouldn’t be funny. Even in a dark way.

    I completely agree. A very pretty kitty!

    Thank you! The pairing of that caption with that image sums up so very much of what we’re up against … just ignorant hateful cruelty. X-(

  5. Ugh, I hope these people aren’t paid for writing these captions, because I’m pretty sure I crapped out something funnier than that last night.
