Interestingly, some comedians ([[StrawTraitor usually fat ones]]) complain about PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad when it comes to fat jokes... although the sheer quantity of examples we have amassed tend to disagree on this front. Obesity is so universally seen as a negative character trait that it's relatively common for characters to be given some AdaptationalAttractiveness to offset this fact.

He's supposed to be the station's engineer, but knows nothing beyond making an idiot of himself (though not the same level as Brewster, whose stupidity is beyond measure), lazing around, and causing trouble to himself and his crew mates.

* RealLife example: Comedian Artie Lange is constantly mocked on ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'', where the Stern sidekick's obsession with junk food caused him to gain more than fifty kilograms in less than a year.

This trend first shows up with the introduction of synthetic, high-fat foods in the early twentieth century, which enabled people from most social classes to gain weight quickly. Prior to that point, being fat was considered high fashion -- examples include AdiposeRex and how having a fat wife proved that the RailroadBaron had enough money to feed her a lot. Hence how we can go from the SantaClaus character type of rich and jolly to the modern character type of greedy, lazy, and evil. Truly, with weightism already a serious (albeit ignored issue), if this keeps up for another 100 years, we're gonna have one heckuva BIG problem.Does it come as any real surprise that most of the writers behind this trope are SKINNY?
