This Lady Is Giving Out ‘Fat Letters’ Instead of Candy For Halloween


Insert obligatory tricks over treats joke, here.

An anonymous woman in North Dakota has informed her neighbors that she will not be giving some of their children candy this Halloween because they are, in her opinion, “moderately obese.”

The offending letter has been republished online by North Dakoka news site Valley News Live, who reports it first got public attention after the author spoke out on a local radio show:


According to Valley News, the anonymous Debbie Downer also discussed the motives behind her little stunt, saying “I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it.”

Well, we think it’s really irresponsible to fat-shame five year olds on a sugar high (who also ostensibly have access to tons of eggs and toilet paper), and our hope is that the parents of West Fargo will step up and not allow grouchy neighborhood bullies to ruin their kids’ fun. Yeesh.

Man Quits Job With Heartwarming Resignation Cake

Chris Holmes, an official at the UK’s Border Agency, garnered public attention after writing out his resignation letter on a cake. A former employee of renowned chefs Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing, Holmes explained that he was quitting in order to devote more time and energy to his family and budding cake business.

The picture of the cake was taken by his brother-in-law, who works in PR and tweeted it. Since then Holmes’ website has been down due to “capacity problems,” as Holmes cheekily ended the letter with a link to “”

The aspiring baker has no regrets surrounding the cake-gone-internet-sensation. Well, except one: “The writing was quite fiddly… I would have done it a bit neater if I’d known it was going to go viral,” he told The Guardian.

Some people go angry panda when they quit their job and some people say it with cake. Both are solid choices.

Sonic Drive-In: Grilled Chicken Wrap

Usually when going to get fast-food, we don’t think to eat “healthy”. But SONIC is trying to make you think differently. Why not eat something you want, but have it be good for you at the same time? Thus, Sonic Drive-In brings us the Grill Chicken Wrap, a wholesome wrap filled with white meat chicken and veggies. Lettuce, tomatoes and light ranch mix great with the grilled chicken, but if that is too healthy for you, get your chicken breaded! If you want some more choices from SONIC, check out their Everyday Value Menu.
