Fat Tube - A Fat Britain b3ta Challenge

Speaking of
large inflated whale like things the ever brilliant b3ta are running an image contest where they wondered what would happen if everyone in Britain got fat.

"People of Britain! You're getting fat! Our nation is in the grip of an obesity epidemic. How will our celebrities adjust to their growing girth? What will life be like when we're all massively overweight? Tell us in porky pictures."

Regular commenter & contributor Jon Justice spotted the London Underground themed entry:

Fat Train by Dixon

That's a winner in my opinion, but I also liked this one:

Lardarse by the Hedgehog from Hell

Will be interesting to see if either get featured in Friday's b3ta newsletter.

If you're really fat though, travelling on the Tube is a no no. You're going to get a lot hotter than everyone else, I would have thought. You stand no chance of fitting onto most of the standard seats, as the arm rests would make that pretty impossible. You'd take up two seats on the ones which didn't have arm rests, & get glowering looks from thinnies. It'd be a nightmare.
