Staying Fat
Written by Carrie Dahlby and the great Luke Ski

Bob: Hey, Susan. I know you’re pro-dieter by now, so I need some dieting advice. What can I do to lose all this weight? What I’m doing now isn’t working.

Susan: I swear by Jenny Craig! But I’ve put most of the weight back on now. What have you been trying?

Bob: Good old fashioned calorie counting is it. Say, David, what dieting methods have you tried?

David: Huh, Atkins, Weight Watchers, South Beach... I’ve tried them all! Nothing’s worked. I wish there was a better way.

[music begins]

Mystery woman: Fear not! I have the perfect new solution for all of you!

Bob, Susan and David: What is it?!?!?!?

Mystery woman: It’s a revolutionary new method called Staying Fat!

David: Staying Fat?!?!?

Mystery woman: Staying Fat is a low-impact, high-calorie lifestyle system!

Susan: But how does it work?!?

Mystery woman: You don’t need exercise, and you don’t need to buy an all new wardrobe. In fact, you can eat all the foods you want, as much as you want, while still Staying Fat!

David: That sounds too good to be true! What’s the catch?

Mystery woman: Only the catch of the day at Red Lobster!

ALL: (*hearty, fakey laughter*)

Mystery woman: Yes, this simple, user-friendly method fits into anyone’s schedule! In fact, unlike most diets, Staying Fat succeeds 95% of the time!

Bob: What other advantages are there to “Staying Fat”?

Mystery Woman: With Staying Fat, you get: -- more TV watching time, -- extended internet access hours, -- you’ll be easier to find in a crowd, -- you’ll get extra room on the bus because people won’t want to sit next to you, -- nobody will ask you to help them move, -- you’ll be harder to kidnap, -- you’ll get more surface area for all you tattoo enthusiasts, -- and women’s breasts will stay nice and big, as will the men’s!

Susan: Wait a minute! This is one of those plans where you have to buy only certain expensive foods, isn’t it?!?

Mystery Woman: (laughts) To the contrary, Staying Fat’s menu is limitless! Just listen to some of our recommended food items:

Voice-Over Guy: Chicken fried bacon, bacon fried chicken, fried chicken bacon, fried bacon chicken, chocolate covered pork rinds, nacho cheese cupcakes, french fry flavored potato chips, battered deep fried steak, a gallon of ice cream AND a stick of butter, frosty pickle malts, fruits or vegetables encased in a block of caramel or cheese, a pony, and a 32 gallon drum of God damn CHILI!

Morbidly Obese Guy: *hurrrg* I want a pony! *hurrrg!*

David: Wow!

Susan: That’s amazing!

Bob: How do I sign up?

Voice-Over Guy: To sign up, just send 13 easy payments of $42.27 to Staying Fat, 239 Taft Avenue, Sheboygan, Wisconsin, 53147. Or, set up automated payments at our website,!

Mystery Woman: Be sure to sign up on our mailing list so you can get in on the ground floor for our next level, in development: “Getting Fatter”!

Morbidly Obese Guy: Gotta sign up for the email... Whaa! (*thump*)
