you can watch entire episodes (okay, sometimes divided into three 10 minute parts) on youtube.

the clips can be misleading. i love the show, but it's quality is kind of uneven. they're all (at least the first 7 that i've seen) worth seeing but episodes one and three are really good.

Rule # 45.1 Fat people are required to sit next to, or on top of, other people while using public transportation.

Amendment to Rule 45.1: The rule shall be given special emphasis in cases where a) The size disparity between the sitter and the sittee is especially large; b) On days that are considered to be swelteringly hot; and c) If the sitter has incredibly stinky body odor emanating from his/her body

I hope this answers your question InshaAllah.

The reason fat people sit next to you is maybe you are really skinny? Usually, if a fat person would sit next to an average weight person, there would be imbalance. It has to go like this: (F denoting Fat, A, denoting Average, and S denoting Slim, and C - Corner):


An unbalanced scheme would be such:


Now as to your sitting on you contention: Only part of their fat is merely on you, they directly, are not sitting on you, although it may seem so, because their fat that is on you, is the size of you.

up - yeah, i guess i've only been watching the cream of the crop, i.e. the songs/videos. apparently, they are coming out with an album soon.

yaz - about time! i was going to count you as AWOL and send my army of monkey robot pirates out to capture you and bring you back!

2s - i don't recall seeing any notice for a opposition or comment period! i object! i love metro and all but this week has been hideous.

ay - i used to be really skinny but (a) not so much anymore and (b) i try to make myself look as fat as i can but they still come! even when there are entire empty rows available. many has been the time i've actually gotten up from my seat and sat somewhere else. re: your code - if those were chords, it might make a nice little ditty. the 'fatty sit somewhere else ditty.'

Actually most things are 117.5% my fault (such as "fatty don't sit on me" syndrome) but I only applied the reduced 110% of comparative negligence fault since it is theoretically possible for Yazzo to call ME.

baj said...

2s - that's very generous of you. is that the friend's discount you offer and applied there?

no, the non-musical parts are great too. watch the first episode on youtube if you get the chance. it's well worth it even if you know all the songs.

the problem is that, at least for this first season, is that they recorded the songs first, then wrote episodes around them. some of the plots are a little strained as they try to work in all the songs. but when it works it really is great. and i'm hoping the second season will include new songs written for the episode, rather than the other way around.
