The Friday Eff Off: The Biggest Loser

This week, Uncle Buster takes on NBC's latest reality heavyweight, The Biggest Loser. Being a man who makes more than the occasional trip to his local Chinese Buffet, usually adding an emergency stop at DQ immediately afterward, we thought he'd be a tad more sympathetic. Oops. Guess not.

The premise for “The Biggest Loser” is noble. Helping morbidly obese people slim down and theoretically live longer is a decent enough cause.

However, I can’t subscribe to the show’s belief that being overweight is an illness. I stopped buying it when one of the contestants listed his daily menu, and used the word “fried” at least 75 times. Another, who had bigger boobs than some of my ex-girlfriends, says he doesn’t like vegetables. This is entertainment? Put the fork down, lard ass! And get off my television!

“The Biggest Loser” is a title reserved for anyone caught watching.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesday nights on NBC.
