, "I want the fat to shake! Vibrate! I want you to show all that beautiful, fat, flabby flesh!" And they did.

Ew! Nightmare!!

Jiggle Jiggle!

oh man. let's be proud of being unhealthy... How 'bout it? Sounds smart to me...

Come on! Let's see those heart attacks! Work up those strokes! Collapse that stage!

Why are so many fat chicks named Trudy?

Reminds me of the commercial for "Hudson Riverdance", a bunch of fat beer gut guys doing the Riverdance thing.

If fat chicks can dance around in leotards then nobody wins.

Plus size? how about ++ size?
 
2001-11-29 11:38:27 AM  
This is so cool. At the very least, these women are getting the exercise they need - which in turn might help them slim down to a more healthy weight. And if not, who cares? They're having fun. And I give them kudos for their bravery - I only weigh 110 pounds and I sure as hell wouldn't get up in front of an audience and dance.
 
2001-11-29 11:38:59 AM  
It's "Hudson River-dance!"
 
2001-11-29 11:39:14 AM  
Fat chicks, the only chick in Canada that are allowed to dance are the strippers!! Canada's best export!
 
2001-11-29 11:39:31 AM  
Now that is what I call some Canadian bacon.....
 
2001-11-29 11:39:51 AM  
Okay, sorry. Didn't hit "add comment" soon enough on the Hudson joke.

Do they mean "huge modern dance troupe" by weight, by membership, or both?
 
2001-11-29 11:39:57 AM  
If any of the women can go on pointe, I'll be impressed. Tho I might have to skip the Nutcracker this year.
 
2001-11-29 11:40:28 AM  
I smell a Trudy!
 
2001-11-29 11:40:52 AM  
Guess the whole "en pointe" thing ain't gonna work... hell, the whales would drill themselves into the floor.

Good for Them!....................Bad for Us!!

Read 'em and weep, this is what all those phone sex workers do in their spare time.
 
2001-11-29 11:46:54 AM  
I'm afraid of Canadians.

Quiver-dance? Jiggle jive? Sausage strut? Bacon bounce?

Canada surrenders

I guess all the Americans who are a healthy weight must converge on Fark.

If you don't want to watch them, then don't watch them. Or do Libertarian sensibilities go out the window when you don't like the idea being promoted?

They seem to be enjoying themselves. Let's face it, it's pretty damn poor of a father to call his daughter "baby elephant!" That's just rude. Would you say that to a stranger?

For the record, I am 5-8, 200 lbs, which although overweight is below the women in this dance troupe.

Ratslapper: What was the Aerosmith video with the phone sex worker who was making dinner with a screaming kid in tow?

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.

There's a company out there making 3XL leotards.
This factory is housing a terrorist sleeper cell and therefore must be bombed.
Have at it 82nd!

And the heavens opened up and the earth boomed and god spoke and said, "I want the fat to shake! Vibrate! I want you to show all that beautiful, fat, flabby flesh!" And they did.

Any problem in the world can be solved by dancing.

good for them. they're showing bravery AND getting exercise.
I certainly wouldn't have the guts to put on a tight leotard and dance for an audience, and I'm not overweight.

In other news, seismographs in the western hemisphere have geologist puzzled with anomalous rythmic readings.

yay to HeatMiser, Stpickrell , and Foxglove (and any other positive person I missed). Shame on the rest of you for, if nothing else, being so damn uncreative. Whoo! Fat jokes! Hardy har har.
 
2001-11-29 12:00:12 PM  
By the way, fat does not necessarily indicate poor health. I have known a number of people who, while having a very high percentage of body fat, were also quite fit, due to regular vigorous excersize (swimming and walking). I'm not unfit, and there was no way in hell I was keeping up with them.
 
2001-11-29 12:01:13 PM  
Foxglove, I agree with you. I think more over weight people need to be doing the same or at least get up and do anything.

What the hell are those stages reinforced with!!!!!!, well it could be worse, they could be doing Peter Pan, but somehow I don't think the cranes they would need to lift those fat ass's would fit in a theater, unless they proformed if at Giant Stadium

Stpickrell: "Let's face it, it's pretty damn poor of a father to call his daughter 'baby elephant!'"

Good on 'em I says! If you can take the jibes and remarks and it's freeing to your soul, go for it!
