In Ricky Gervais’ new comedy audiobook, he jokes that fat asses who get lipo and the gastric bypass surgery are “lazy fat pigs.” Karl Lagerfeld just fell in love (see below).
Ricky said, “If your arse is too fucking fat, stop eating and go for a run.” The Telegraph said Ricky was attacking overweight people. He responded to this on his own blog by saying he will never stop the fat jokes until doctors prove that being a member of the chunk club is something you’re born with. Has Ricky never heard of the fat gene?! Anyway, here’s what he had to say:
I heard someone on the radio once say that they were tired of the prejudice aimed at the overweight. They said something like “you’re not allowed to make fun of gay people, so why are you allowed to make fun of fat people? It’s the same thing.”
It’s not the same thing though, is it? Gay people are born that way. They didn’t work at becoming gay. Fat people became fat because they would rather be that way than stop eating so much. They had to eat and eat to get fat. Then, when they were fat they had to keep up the eating to stay fat. For gayness to be the same as fatness, gay people would have to start off straight but then ween themselves onto cock. Soon they’re noshing all day getting gayer and gayer. They’ve had more than enough cock… they’re full… they’re just sucking for the sake of it. Now they’re overgay, and frowned upon by people who can have the occasional cock but not over indulge.
When a doctor tells me that that’s how you become gay, I’ll stop making jokes about fat people.
“Overgay” is the story of my life. Just ask my doctor. He prescribed me a diet of less Bravo, more Spike and less cock, more Kid Rock. That last part rhymes!
Anybody who has seen Ricky’s act knows that he’s a fat bitch who makes fun of fat bitches and he knows it. When he makes a blubber joke, he’ll follow it up with, “I’m a fatty bo batty myself…” or something like that. Because he’s a plumpy himself, it’s okay for him to make fun of fatties, right? Right?
And who takes him seriously anyway? He’s a fucking comedian. It’s just jokes! Jokes! People get are so damn oversensitive. You can’t make fun of fat people, skinny bitches, gays, lezzies, straights, gingers, squirrels, ferns, etc… What else is there left to laugh at? Rocks?! Well, that includes most of Hollywood, so that settles that. We’ll only make fun of fucking rocks!
