Do We Have This One?? If not How Did We Miss This One?? Fat (or should I say large? chubby? fluffy?) people tend to come up with any excuse they can to avoid the stigma of being labeled as what they are: Fat. The most common excuses heard are that they are just big-boned, it's just baby fat, they have a slow metabolism or that it's a glandular disorder. This would be Truth in Television, defintely. A form of Insistent Terminology. See also Does This Make Me Look Fat? and Hollywood Pudgy.
