ND woman will be handing out "fat letters" instead of candy to ToTers SHE feels are overweight (UPDATE INSIDE)

http://www.theindychannel.com/news/u-s-world/woman-targets-childhood-obesity-trick-or-treaters-on-halloween

 

What will be done to her house by the time the weekend is over?

So it looks like the radio station paid this woman to say it:

  • I can't imagine what I would do to someone who handed my children a fat letter on Halloween, perhaps have a "You are a "bitch" letter ready?

  • Not her place to do that. Why doesn't she give out fruit.

  • I'm with Blue. I wish it were happening around here so I could make a preemptive strike.

  • So some kids get to binge on candy, but not others, just because of how they look. Heck, I was always a skinny minny, but that doesn't mean I had healthy eating habits, just a good metabolism. You can't judge people just because they're overweight. There could be different reasons for that. :/

    Yeah, she'll have her house egged or TP'd for sure.

  • Hate to break it to her, but I don't think her idea of trying to fight childhood obesity isn't going to do anything but piss people off. One night of getting free candy does not make kids fat. Seems like she might have a bit of a god complex or something. Hatch a stupid plan that apparently she believes will make a difference, then contacts the media so people can know about her "good deed". What exactly is her criteria for morbidly obese anyways?

  • I agree with louse2, give out something healthy, but give it to ALL of the kids not just some. All kids need to eat healthier for life.

    But, here's the thing, it's up to parents to decide what their kids have. Keeping them from trick or trreating isn't the answer, eating healthful meals every day and getting exercise is the answer.
