(Forbes)   If you buy a regular-sized gray dress at Target, it's called "heather gray." If you buy the plus-sized version, it's called "manatee gray." Hmmm   (forbes.com) divider line 102

The Twitiot sounds fat

Why is the larger dress $3 cheaper?

In the Twitter era, marketers have to be extra careful that what they put on their websites isn't offensive, even intentionally.

Er...

No, no, no - you're supposed to make a diabetes joke instead,

hahahahaha. Sorry, for a website geek, that's pretty damn funny.

It doubles as a sail for the container vessel while being shipped from China.  Thus the fuel savings are passed on to you!

Hey, yeah!  Men have to pay a fat tax for their XXL shirts.

Are you referring to @SuZen pictured above?
How can you say she looks anything other than a bit of a face at a funny angle?
She can sound fat but I don't see anything in that pic to confirm if she looks thin, or fat.
Of course I could go GIS her, which I assume you might've, but from that pic she's neither, even if it is the standard selfie angle for body issue women.
Ugh, I said selfie, someone kick my balls for me.

Sea what truth in advertising laws get you?
 
2013-04-03 08:50:30 PM  
What's the problem here? Manatees are fat and ugly so it makes sense to call a "plus-sized" version of a dress by the proper name. Don't wanna wear "manatee grey"? Put down the fork and get some exercise.
 
2013-04-03 08:50:52 PM  
The manatee thing isn't so bad but the Miss Piggy pink is just ridiculous.....
 
2013-04-03 08:52:06 PM  
Because, on Fark, making fun of fat people is a spectator sport.

That's like the MySpace Angle gone plaid. She's probably 300+.

looks like different color palettes, could be different fabrics.

how much bigger are the plus sizes than the XXL?
 
2013-04-03 09:08:45 PM  

namegoeshere: Why is the larger dress $3 cheaper?


Because they get to buy the fabric in bulk.

Profit by volume?

So, if a woman just starts eating kleenex for dinner, she can buy the more eloquently named dress and pay more?

Depends on how much gravy she smothers the kleenex in

There could be a niche market for Ex-Lax gravy.

In the earlier tissue-eater thread, they mentioned Crystal Renn was back down to a size 2. Granted I am a straight woman not a skinny gay fashionista man, but I think she looked better as a "plus size' 10.

/Do I sound fat? 5'8", size 10. Could lose a few pounds but not a hog by a long shot, I don't think.

I know it's already been covered, but ummm...

Obviously they let any no talent dumbfark write copy these days.

I wonder if the pub crawl tour bus sounds the ship-horn and says "Now entering Sag Harbor, three dollar you-call-it fishbowls and dim lighting!"

Hey, I like like fat women.  Turn your nose up, while I am getting laid.

heavy, plus, plumper, thick, curves are all good, just don't be a land whale.

But I do find it interesting that the plus sized dress is cheaper than the regular sized dress.
