Fat hatred: the game

I just read about a new game called Fatworld over at Wired. The "obesity epidemic"--it's fun for the whole family!

I'm sure the creator of this game thinks it's all about "healthy choices." I appreciate the acknowledgment that high-quality food and fancy gyms are more readily available to the wealthy, but we all know (or I hope we do by now) there are people who eat healthy food and work out and yet--hold onto your hats, folks!--are still fat.

Besides, if you're gonna have characters named things like "Gordita," it's pretty clear where you're coming from.
