This year’s “’Merica!” comes to us in the form of “Majestic as Fuck!”, a phrase aptly used to describe images of breathtaking beauty — or comical fail.
It was initially spawned from a Flickr account pic a photographer uploaded of her dog looking out a car window. But now it has spread, chiefly through Reddit, to embody sarcasm in its most biting form. And now, by being coupled with a photo of a fat guy kicking a soccer ball, it has transcended all previous high points of its existence. And that’s kind of a shame.
You know who should be absolutely off limits for mockery? Fat people working out. Seriously, I think we can all agree that fat people are not a “good thing.” Healthy people are a good thing. So when a photo of a fat guy goes viral because people are making fun of his giant belly hanging out, it kind of sends a bad message to everyone.
Yes, he looks absolutely comical — fat people aren’t supposed to do stuff! But people, please, for the good of our health insurance premiums, give this guy a polite golf clap for not being photographed going through a Mcdonald’s drive-thru on his Rascal scooter.
The crazy of it all, is that as a football lineman for the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, Jason Spitz, the fattie in question, is actually in ridiculously good shape and could not only chase you down, but bench press your broken, lifeless body … a lot.
Instead, might I offer you these images of a overreaching pug or an embarrassingly-coiffed stallion. That works, right?
