No doubt about it, skinny and fat are funny. It's hard to make fun of skinny people, though. It's actually fashionable to be skinny now.
Emos made it hip to be that way. Have you seen the jeans guys are wearing now?
Maybe it was always hip to be thin. I mean, look at Sinatra. He could walk in the rain without getting wet.
Guys like that probably get beaten up a lot in high school, but the ones who survive have it made for the rest of their lives.
Girls love skinny guys. Frank needed body guards to fend them off.
Thankfully the gods of comedy have supplied us with overweight people in abundance. The problem is, that they're too easy a target. It's hard to think of a fat joke that hasn't been done before.
So that's my resolution for 2011: learn to draw stocky. Revel in it. Try to understand the stocky universe.
BTW: I need to take a few days off. I'll be back Wednesday night, Feb. 2nd!
