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.

Apparently, North Dakota is the Booziest State, While Virginia is the Most Sober

Screen Shot 2013-05-30 at 9.59.34 AM

According to this chart from Inforum, North Dakota has a bar for every 1,620 people, which presumably includes minors, old people, and other teetotalers. In other words, if you want to get your drink on without having to swim through hoards of people, go to North Dakota, since that’s the state with the highest number of bars per capita.

That could be due to North Dakota’s diminishing population, sure. But more likely it’s the fact that people in North Dakota have to drink more to forget they’re in North Dakota, and it’s really cold. Does that sound ridiculous? Check out the other top-ranking per capita drinkers: Montana, Wisconsin, South Dakota, and Nebraska. In short, drinking has less to do with social habits, and more to do with awful weather.

Read the full report here (and click through the interactive infographic), or else laugh at Virginia, which would have to cram 64,773 folks into its pubs every night. If Virginians were into that sort of thing.
