Too Fat to Work

The headline says it all:

Family Who Are 'Too Fat to Work' Say £22,000 Worth of Benefits Is Not Enough

Some details anyway: The Chawner family of four weighs a combined 1,162 pounds. They haven't worked in 11 years. They're too busy eating. The benefits they receive as a reward for being useless are the equivalent of the take-home pay from a £30,000 salary.

Whimpers Philip Chawner, patriarch of the clan:

What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table. It's not our fault we can't work. We deserve more.

Once society rejects fundamental morality by accepting the crime of the State stealing from the productive on behalf of the unproductive, the floodgates are open to every extreme of absurdity. Like an ever-growing swarm of locusts, the parasite class will not stop eating until everything is gone.

The Chawners eat for a living.

On a tip from Scaramouche.

Perhaps they all should go on bread and water diets and run the treadmill at the gym for three hours nonstop

Interesting. Here in the US, where obesity is more commonplace, I've seen plenty of people even bigger than that working eight hour days. They usually have more sick days, and you never see them on the stairs, but they do work. I wonder how much the patron of this clan has to do with keeping everyone else at home?

I may have to buy stock in a flour company!!

Posted by: zen at March 26, 2009 7:55 AM

I have no pity for these kinds of people. Cut them off. It will take them a long time to starve to death. Maybe they will go get a job after a few weeks.

We should use this to our advantage.

Can we extend it to include "too dumb to work?" Then we could get rid of Franks, Pelosi and a large number of others.

Shoot, the gal on the left is hot! Plus she comes with French benefits.

Posted by: Mockingbird at March 26, 2009 8:17 AM

JustAl is on to something!! I would fully support that, and even provide a few pennies for stipends for them, if they would just go away.

These people are not that fat. I've had co-workers that fat and they did just fine with desk jobs. Britain, grow some balls, or at least buy some boots to kick some ass!

Being fat is not being disabled. They can sit in a chair, take phone calls, type, take orders from customers, etc. Problem is, it'd be hard to understand that a company is going to send you a software package on a certain date when ya are trying to talk with a chicken wing in between your teeth.

OMG! I have now stopped laughing and picked myself off the floor. I thought this was joke. Now, I am crying. These bums are serious!

This is the poster family for Socialism and “big” government. See what happens when you just give money away in entitlements, it just gets “eaten” up by people like this.

Posted by: Franklin's Locke at March 26, 2009 8:37 AM

wonderful 60,000$ dollars in U.S money a year just for being fat, that is AWESOME!!!

lets see i assume that is tax free since the government gives them the money.

that is 5000$ a month profit, compared to me they make more money for doing absolutely nothing all day.


why haven't the British over thrown there government yet???

Posted by: furballz at March 26, 2009 8:41 AM

Someone call Jenny Craig for these fatties!

Posted by: Joycer at March 26, 2009 8:43 AM

Is that Edith Massey on the left, the egg lady of in the John Waters film Pink Flamingos?
I say give them their own limey reality show on BBC 1 and then can rake in the British pounds. Just like Octomom.

Posted by: Bryherb at March 26, 2009 9:21 AM

Nope. I see people fatter than that all the time working in jobs rather than bleeding their government. Amateurs.

Going Galt poster family.

"We deserve more...." The culture of entitlement is out of control.

Holy crap! Someone took a photo of Gimme Money, Cave Ahht, Fat Stanley, and Dino all in one place!

They're so fat, they jumped in the air and got STUCK!

$3.99 for all you can eat?
Well, I'm a stuff my face to a funky beat!
We're gonna walk inside, and guess what's up:
Put some food in my plate, and some Coke in my cup
Give me some chicken, franks, and fries
And you can pass me a lettuce. I'm a pass it by...

(The Fat Boys)

...ah, those were the days.

I knew someone considerably heftier than the Dad in the photo.
He got a job pushing carts in a grocery store parking lot.
The pounds (which he'd had for decades) flew off in weeks.

Reminds me of an old Simpsons episode where Homer goes on an eating binge so he can hit 300 lbs. and get qualified as "disabled."
I'm more and more convinced that we need to drastically curtail welfare and disability benefits. For every person who truly needs it, there seem to be 50 leeches who are working the system in perpetuity. If the social security clerk takes one look at you and exclaims "Damn, how are you even still alive???", then you can get a check. Otherwise, suck it up and find a job.

Posted by: PabloD at March 26, 2009 5:05 PM

2 Thessalonians 3:10 states,"For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." In this case, It might do them some good.

i see four fat lesbians? Am I wrong here?


Posted by: AC at March 26, 2009 5:13 PM

If these porkers went to an "All You Can Eat" restaurant, about 2 hours into their odyssey through the buffet line the manager would probably start screaming, "Get the flock out of my restaurant.... You've already HAD 'all you can eat' !!!"

Posted by: Ziggy at March 26, 2009 6:42 PM

"What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table."

There's your problem.

Posted by: Jake at March 27, 2009 12:01 AM

Surely they could get a job at a 'fat farm'.

Posted by: Eric at March 27, 2009 5:51 AM

Not that they should, but how do these creatures breed?

Posted by: JoeShmoe at March 27, 2009 5:53 AM

Ziggy that reminds me of a Louie Anderson routine.

So the formula is 1£ per lb?

Pound for pound, they're the nicest Limey family around.

Posted by: Ned Schnittt at March 27, 2009 9:40 AM

Didn't Motley Crue have a song called Too fat for love? Oh wait that was Too FAST for love.

Posted by: Farmer Ted at March 27, 2009 9:45 AM

Can someone please tell me at what point people started believing that a government should take care of them regardless of their physical or mental disabilities? I don't care if you are obese by your own hand or a "medical disorder" you don't deserve a penny of taxpayer money.

Also these people, especially the man, don't look all that fat to me. I have seen people before twice their size. They look like they can walk around just fine. It irks me when someone claims they deserve something they were never entitled to, to begin with.

Posted by: Patricia at March 27, 2009 5:53 PM

These people should be ashamed of them selves. Living off honest hard working people. There are
a lot more out there that would do anything, so
they don't have to go out to work and earn a living.
How can these people sleep at night, Oh! they probably can't because of all those snacks.

Posted by: MaryPat at March 27, 2009 6:40 PM

Solution: Move to the USA. Within a year or two, nobody will have enough food to eat (save the Lib Elites, of course, our new Soviet rulers), much less the fuel to heat our homes during the next blizzard-filled "global warming" winter of 2009-10. The family will starve (the famous "involuntary diet") like the rest of us, and lose upwards of 300 lbs. apiece!

Brilliant, if I say so myself (and I do)!

Posted by: jc14 at March 27, 2009 8:20 PM

Seriously dudes and dudettes, don't even get me started! Two words you should learn fat ones: "I'm full"

F-me, I'm telling ya's, we're surrounded by sponging wasters like this in our once beautiful country. To make it worse, me (one income family of 3 children under 5) are paying for them...

What is it, you can't get a job typing, but you can press the f-ing buttons on your ready made microwave meals.

Zen raises a good point: Cut them off - they'll soon get a job then. Or put their food stamps in their work boots.

To give you a bit of background, the dude on the far right was on UK X Factor in a wedding dress made by her father. She sang awfully, and Simon Cowell ripped the p!ss out of her big time...

Good times
