“Don’t make fun of fat people. They have enough on their plates”

"Don’t make fun of fat people. They have enough on their plates” is a jocular saying that has been printed on several GIFs. “I don’t like folk making jokes about fat people, Don’t you think they have enough on their plate?” was cited in a 2008 newspaper.

“Could you guys quit joking about fat people please? Don’t you think they have enough on their plate?” was posted on Twitter on May 18, 2009.


7 July 2008, The Herald (Glasgow, Scotland), “The Diary,” pg. 15:
“I don’t like folk making jokes about fat people, “ said the chap in the pub the other night.

“Don’t you think they have enough on their plate?”
