Subs in shape...

Great sense of humour on display on the front page of the Hull Daily Mail today. In a story headlined NHS CUTS BACK ON SLIMMING SURGERY about 30 fat folk lined up for weight loss surgery being told by NHS Hull that they'll have to 'look at other ways of shedding the pounds', part of the puntastic overline reads 'health bosses trim waiting lists'. Very good. Rather cruel of me but I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read that one of the 30, Leanne Bothamley, said that the decision is "crushing". Dr Wendy Richardson, Hull's director of public health, spends a lot of time repeating her mantra that all the many overweight people of this city need to do is "eat less and move more" and I imagine that Leanne, crushed after spending so many years doing the crushing, has been armed with this sound medical advice.
