A plea.

This has turned into one of the worst threads related to health, obesity and body image I've seen around here in ages. Can we please not generalize to assume people who are overweight have some sort of mental instability, gluttony and/or poor self or impulse control? It's rather ugly. Thank you.

Two by Two. Shirts of Blue.

Does this strike anyone else as odd? This FPP contains two links to a t-shirt store (where the shirts are quite literally blue,) and a third link to an site with an ad/link to the same store.
