Everyone Gets Teased

"Fatty, fatty, two by four - can't fit through the kitchen door."
But this one makes no sense at all.
A 2x4 is not a large piece of lumber.
I guess kids weren't clever enough to come up with a better rhyme.

"Fluffy", "Plus-Sized", "Juicy", "Big-Boned", "Curvy", "Thick", whatever... .
It seems that chubby women have taken to creating their own euphemism for being overweight.
But I've yet to see a fat skeleton - "big-boned", really?
Why does someone feel such shame for what others think of them?
Is "Fat the new Black"?
If so, why is there no shame in being Black to the point of committing suicide over it?

John she looks like she's got a couple of packages of Skittles under the skin on those hams.
