Family 'Too Fat to Work' Collects Annual $30,000 Disability

Postby Baconsticks » Tue Mar 24, 2009 12:58 am

A British family of four, who receives more than $30,000 a year in benefits because they are “too fat to work,” says they deserve more money, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.

The Chawners, who live in Blackburn, England, have a combined weight of 1,160 pounds.

“What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table,” Philip Chawner, 53, told the newspaper. “It’s not our fault we can’t work. We deserve more.”

Philip and his wife Audrey, 57, weigh 336 pounds each. Daughters Emma, 19, and Samantha, 21, weigh in at 236 pounds and 252 pounds, respectively.

Audrey Chawner, who has epilepsy and asthma as a result of being overweight, told “Closer” magazine her family’s weight is genetic and they cannot afford to eat healthier.

Philip Chawner has Type 2 diabetes and was eligible for gastric band surgery until he developed a heart condition.

“I’m a student and don’t have time to exercise,” Emma Chawner said. “We all want to lose weight to stop the abuse in the street, but we don’t know how.”

They probably spend $28,000 a year on pantsless food. Don't know how to lose weight. Gimme a frickin break. Also, I've worked with people who were well over 300 pounds, and they could work fine, so wah.

The vast majority of jobs these days are desk jobs anyway. Hell, they could probably work from home.

We can't bend over to pick up change off the ground.

Wait, we can't? YES, WE CAN!

They're not receiving enough money to put food on the table for a reason.

That can be interpreted in the sense that they are being forced to lose weight, or the more morbid sense that the government is trying to just kill them off and save $30,000 a year. I like the latter.

They probably do have enough money to put food on the table. They just don't have enough money to put lard, crisco, and twinkies on the table.

Maybe if they bought just twikies. Though I guess that would explain their obnoxious weight and (I would assume) diabeetus.
