I like dem big and fat and thick

And on and on it goes. Those are the words from a Crop Over song from a calypsonian Captain Sawyer this year.
So I come across this article today.
This lady in New Hampshire fired off a complaint to the medical board of New Hampshire because her doctor told her she was obese. Imagine that?
The complaint doesn't seem to be about the manner in which the doctor told his patient about her weight issues but the fact that he told her about them and suggested she lose weight. I guess she wasn't ready for him to burst her bubble of delusion.
Come on now. Your doctor is supposed to be the one person to tell you things straight up. You don't want your doctor to be like that knight in Monty Python's Holy Grail who lost a leg fighting and swears it was just a little nick, a mere flesh wound. No if you are at the doctor you want him to give you the results straight. Yes you want him to be sensitive and have a nice bedside manner, which is probably why I'm not in the medical field, but you want the truth.
