What's Worse, "Fat" or "Old"?
In our twisted society, the two most horrible things someone can call you are "fat" and "old."
Sometimes both at the same time.
Even "hideously ugly" and "moronically stupid" fall way below those two in our pecking order of insults because we're all madly obsessed with being thin and young, and any hint that we're otherwise is social death with mayo on top!
So which of those epithets is worse?
I'd definitely say "old" because if you're fat, you can at least try to lose a few pounds.
If you're old, you can only get older!
