We all know about tobacco; how it is the primary cause of cancer and heart disease and is the number one cause of preventable deaths in Ireland.
Then there is alcohol, which is the primary cause of cancer and heart disease and is the number one cause of preventable deaths in Ireland.
And of course there is obesity which is the primary cause of cancer and heart disease and is the number one cause of preventable deaths in Ireland.
A “study” has concluded that a quarter of all three year olds are overweight or obese.
I wonder what they mean by overweight? Say my ideal weight is supposed to be 168lb and I weigh in at 170lb, does that make me overweight? It probably does and I’m in line for a miserable life of cancers, heart attacks and diabetes before I die an agonising and slow death long before my time [whenever that is].
Of course the study has found the root cause – the majority of the overweight three year olds were from that Lower Order – the Great Uneducated Unwashed.
We all know that the Peasant Class breed like rabbits in order to claim Child Benefit, so it’s no real surprise that they constitute the majority of the overweight. Statistically, it’s quite understandable. What is a bit of a mystery though is how they can afford to stuff their kids full of crisps and Coke. Child Benefit must pay well, though I presume next week’s budget will address that little problem.
At a time when most people are struggling to make ends meet; where parents are literally starving themselves to feed their children [I heard of a case yesterday of a child being given sweetened water for his lunch as the mother couldn’t afford anything else] I consider it to be pretty heartening that the Peasant Class are able to feed their sprogs so well. As a society, we should clap ourselves on our collective backs.
There are many ways to solve this problem.
They could try educating the peasants but that is doomed to failure.
They could export them all to some deserving country [Iran?].
Or they could just stop doing these fucking “studies”.
