Actual Headline

screen cap of a Seattle Post-Intelligencer story headlined 'Fatties R Us: Washington obesity rate nearly doubles'

"Fatties R Us: Washington obesity rate nearly doubles."

While "fatties" is certainly a word that many fat activists use in a reclaimative or ironic way, that is quite evidently not the way the word is being used here.

The story also contains the charming line: "Washington also out-fatted nearby states."

Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes.
