Disability Payments For Obsese People

None of the Chawners, a married English couple and their two adult daughters, have worked in 11 years. Yet the British government pays them a combined 45,000 dollars an annum in various disability benefits stemming from their morbid obesity. (The Chawners weigh between 240 and 340 pounds each.)

Phillip, the family patriarch and the heaviest, claims the handout "barely covers the bills and puts food on the table. It's not our fault we can't work. We deserve more."

And, on that point, how quickly would our extra-large population bankrupt the United States if we ever brought a European-style welfare system to this side of the Atlantic?
Im sorry we need to start taking responsibilities for our own actions. Stop overeating !!

I've never seen these particular lard-arses myself, but I believe they cast a huge shadow over our society.

Simple diagnosis: The hole below their nose is bigger than the hole in their backsides.
