If all of the media was controlled by one group, and they chose to replace all images of skinny or athletic people with images of people who were more chubby, would we start to find fat attractive?

Obviously some people do, already… But I’m talking about the majority, who don’t.

Could majority opinion be swayed by the glamorization of portliness? If Tom Cruise were replaced by John Goodman, and Angelina Jolie by a Hairspray-era Rikki Lake, would we begin to fancy flab?

John Goodman’s a much better actor than Tom Cruise. However, he’d never have fit in the cockpit of that fighter jet in Top Gun, though, so I suppose movie plotlines would have to be adapted to accommodate the new regime.

Just food for thought (sorry).

Peace be to my brothers and Sisters.
