* In ''Literature/YouAreDeadSignHerePlease'', one of the things [[CelestialBureaucracy Fulcher]] threatens Nathan with if he won't sign the form acknowledging he's dead is to reincarnate him as the only fat man in history who ''genuinely'' has a gland disorder and is big-boned, condemning him to a life of protestations that no one will believe.

Overweight people can be very self conscious. It's understandable. We tend to associate [[FatBastard many negative traits and behaviors with obesity]]. Thus, overweight people tend to come up with any excuse they can to avoid the stigma of being labeled as such. It isn't that they are fat, they are just big-boned. Or maybe it's just baby fat. Maybe they have a gland disorder or a slow metabolism. It has nothing to do with lack of exercise, or the [[BigEater triple cheeseburger, chili fries and chocolate-covered strawberries they just ate]].
