Learning Self-Hatred With Ivan Lewis And Fat School Report

by | 4th, August 2008

THERE no follows an announcement from the department of Heath & Efficinecy:

From September this year, parents of children who have been weighed and measured at school could automatically receive their child’s results in a bid to get parents to be more aware about healthy lifestyles, and help their children achieve a healthy weight, Health Minister Ivan Lewis announced today“.

No losing your fat report on the way home for shcool, kids, or eating it. Not any more:

Dad: “Where’s your report, son?”

Bunter: “I ate it, dad. I covered it in peanut butter and chocolate, deep-fat fried, and ate it squashed in a doughnut kebab.”

Says Ivan Lewis, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Department of Health (pictured with chins up; weight on application):

“Research shows that most parents of overweight or obese children think that their child is a healthy weight. This important move isn’t about pointing the finger and telling parents that their children are overweight, instead it’s about equipping parents with the information they need to help their children live healthier lives.”

In other words, parents think their fat kids looks just fine. But with the right amount of information, they can stigmatise Armani and make her see the error of her ways.

She will then face years of low self-esteem and help the country’s booming Prozac market remain as bouyant as a fat lad in the Dead Sea.
