Gym poster slammed after claiming aliens will take fat people first

People are not happy with this gym billboard that claims aliens will take fat people first.

The massive poster in Sawley, Derbyshire, depicts a UFO beaming someone up, with the words ‘they’ll take the fat ones first’ and ‘save yourself’ printed next to the image.

The Fit4Less gym Long Eatonís billboard on Tamworth Road, Sawley, which has been deemed ëoffensiveí. See NTI story NTIFAT. A national gym chain has been blasted for putting up a giant billboard saying fat people will be abducted by ALIENS. The controversial 20ft-high poster was put up to advertise Fit4Less on the side of a Co-operative store overlooking a busy road. It shows a green alien and a person being beamed up by a green light into a spaceship. The text on the gigantic billboard reads: "They're coming...and when they arrive they'll take the FAT ones first!" It also says "Save yourself!" next to an arrow pointing to the gym's website. Fit4Less has now been criticised for encouraging bullying by putting up the giant advert on Tamworth Road in Sawley, Derbys.

    Eventually the only allowable phase will be “I submit”.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I submit to my personal trainer.

      • useless opinion

        better than to submit to our fat overlords!

      • Justin St.Denis

        And so you should. Trainers are among the few people who do not have accounts with the Pity Bank and will tell you the truth. 😉

    • It’s the truth.

        The good news is, that the fat bastards who were offended, are also too lazy to get off the couch and do anything about it.

      Social Justice Warriors, like nazis and muslims, have a low tolerance for play/pleasure/fun/funny things/jokes/laughter. The incidence of depression among the SJW population is significantly higher than it is in the general population. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why.

        because if eveything you heard and saw caused you stress youd develop depression as well

    I think it’s hilarious and I could stand to lose a few pound myself.

  • moraywatson

    Bears, aliens, same difference. I don’t have to be able to outrun them, I just have to be able to outrun you !

      Or Leonardo DiCaprio!

      • Justin St.Denis

        Yeah, isn’t that a drag? I hate being chased by former child-stars, don’t you? We endured harassment by DiCaprio during our most recent Cakifornia vacation. Our NYC holiday was ruined when McCauly Culkin started stalking us everywhere. And here we had sighed in relief and thought our troubles were over when Shirley Temple passed because her crazy correspondence was really getting on the wife’s nerves. Most recently, my wife has been victimized by the spirit of Judy Garland, who keeps trying to use her as a channel to sing OVER THE RAINBOW. You have to hear that song sung a la Garland but with an Asian accent in order to believe how HAUNTING the experience has been. Awakening to the wife in full spirit-trance bellowing OVER THE RAINBOW has become a regular feature of my life…….

    It is ridiculous. They won’t take the fat ones, at all; their tractor beams can’t handle the strain.

        Homer Simpson being ‘picked up’ by the aliens’ tractor beam, I’m guessing? (I can’t view the video here.)

    • Exile1981

      wasn’t there a simpsons episode were it took 3 beams to lift homer?

      That’s the same school bus that used to pick me up in the morning back in the day.

    Don’t go! Don’t go! How to Serve Man… it’s a politically-correct university policy manual!!! Don’t go!!!

  • Justin St.Denis

    As a retiree, I decided (was coaxed, actually) into becoming a part-time trainer. My wife indulges me and I have always kept a fully equipped gym, so it was a no-brainer. I currently have four clients (three women, one male) all over 50 who each come three times per week. I have discovered it is very gratifying to watch people discover for themselves the benefits of being in good shape/health. I have been introduced by my clients’ husbands as “their new best friend” on several occasions. ;-). Now, that was very gratifying.

    BTW, it’s true! The aliens are going to cull the fat ones first.

  • Dana Garcia

    Illegal (space) aliens take the fat ones because chubby humans are tastier and go really nice with a Vulcan chardonnay.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Just don’t try roasting them over an open fire. The fat tends to melt and splatter a lot, which is a fire hazard on any planet. Think “goose” and you maybe are beginning to get a handle on cooking humans. Remember to baste!

    Did you hear about the cannibal that passed his neighbor on a trail in the forest?

    If a fat chick falls in the forest — Do the trees laugh?
