What would you think if they put a weight limit to eat fast food??

The post about making ppl on gov. assistance put on BC made me think of this. Like, to eat at a fast food restaurant, you couldn't weigh over a certain amount to control obesity in this country??
I personally think it would be wonderful... Just curious as to who thinks that it would benefit the country...

  • ha, ok if you think that would be OK. how about we put a limit on how much you can spend on your luxury items and see how well ya like that. Its not a good idea period. Controlling people like that is just WRONG! Not mention how degrading it would be to people they think do not meet that standard.

  • Thats funny. They would just have skinny people go get their food. I know I would if I exceded the weight limit. I don't think it would help though people want what they can't have so if people were told they were too fat for fast food that would just make them want it more & they would eat more to replace that void...face it there are always going to be fatties in America

    (No offense to phat people. I'm phat too!)

  • I think thats dumb..b/c different ppl can hold different weights. like I'm 5'7 and I can hold up to 170 and still fit into a size 7...I dont think thats a good idea

  • I think the fast food restauraunts would lose a lot of customers...
    Nah it's a bit silly really, what they going to do? Weigh them in store? "UH OH you're two pounds over!"

  • People can have a sex change but not choose where they want to eat......yeah this world is that screwed up! But they wouldn't do that, b/c they do serve low cal food at those places, salads, etc.....

  • What would you think if they put a weight limit on computer, television or phone usage?

  • I think I'd loose weight! LMAO Are you serious..... take away my Whataburger and there might be a fight - I'd yank me up some skinny cashier and sit on her until my demands were met!!. Oh, sorry.... my side is hurting from laughing so hard at this one. I'm not overweight (that much) but I still think this is a little too invasive for my taste.
