Funny: Adam Carolla on the Value of Shaming

Personally I think this ship has sailed. It's true, but the ship has sailed.

Americans' most cherished right is to be fat, dumb, lazy, entitled, selfish and cowardly without anyone making them "feel bad" about it.

Anyway, Carolla says something here that made me laugh out loud so I'll quote it. (Also, I need a fresh post.)

“I say good,” Carolla declared. “That’s all we have. That’s all we have ever had, is as a society. I mean, there are not enough counselors or dietitians or cops. We have to shame. I would like to expand the shaming to welfare moms and deadbeat dads and people who think it’s a good idea to fly in flip flops. I want shaming. It keeps society in order.”

O'Reilly wondered if there wasn't any exception for compassion. Carolla had none of it.

“Well, listen, I think they are going to get beat up by society no matter what,” Carolla replied. “I mean, prom season is not great when you’re fat. And dating is tough. And even job interviews. I mean, society gets its pound of flesh out of these people. … But, eventually when there is more of them than there are of us, they will literally crush us. This way, if you think about it … they’re going to take over the world with their enormity.”

Laughed out loud.

Speaking of which, apparently some plus-sized model* can now claim the world's record for world's biggest hips -- eight feet around.

Dude.

Sir Mix-A-Lot just issued a public apology and retraction.

* Is she really a model? What does she model -- sandwiches?

I Just Realized... Ever see a Star Wars A-Wing fighter?

Same.

Except chunkier in the engines.

27 My liberal, oversized sister is a case in point.
When she was late for her plane, and some passengers were complaining, she turned it around on them by asking if anyone had a family member die that day? She hadn't of course, she wanted to deflect and blame. So she got apologies and sympathy that was unearned. Typical.

I'm on board as long as we also start shaming runners and other
athletes who eventually need back surgery and knee replacements.

And, of course, people who have the kinds of sex that tend to lead to expensive diseases.

But anyone who thinks that fat people are only fat because they don't get enough negative feedback from society is a complete fucking idiot.

The cheerleader thing is simply a running joke. Even I've played along but I am quite aware that they all look miles better in a bikini than I do.

Of course there are many factors to account for folks being overweight and, I agree, shame isn't necessarily the best approach to improving the situation.

It depends.

If you're popping out 10 kids by 6 different fathers on MY dime, then you are doing me harm.

Able bodied people should feel shame at collecting welfare.

Similarly, if your loud, rude, vulgar self can't go 5 minutes without dropping an F-bomb in public, you're harming my culture.

If you're morbidly obese, you do me no harm unless your shit is all up in my shit next to me on an airplane. In which case, fuck you, fattie. Buy another seat. Your condition does not entitle you to half the seat I paid for.

115 101 MUMR,

Correct, I've fought weight issues and am fairly successfully below Jabba scales...no where near my Army weight but hey I am not a recently quit amphetamine user who ran way too much way too often anymore either.

It's hilarious that a culture that wants to micromanage my light bulbs, toilets, food labeling, seat belt use, smoking, drink size, drug use, sexual congress, hiring and firing practices, insecticides, energy used generation type, etc etc etc down to healthcare and weight can't seem to reverse engineer the causation of Hep C, Aids, and Herpes.

Why it is almost as if "some" healthcare costs are seen as "my rights to do x' by our invasive nosed liberal totalitarian overlords whilst others are protected species....?

Point being if a fat person costs more upkeep guess what similar to smokers they are cashing out early probably before they get Soc Sec...

don't worry Ogabecare will just wave or use them for cheap renewable fuel...

and I am barely kidding.

Leave the shame for waking up in the wrong state after a bender wondering why your butt is sore and as Greyhound says "leave the driving to us!" and Obama to say "throw another under the bus."

134 As a group, fat people are sicker and need more health care. This is not opinion, this is fact.

Only partially true. The latest research says the morbidly obese still have a problem but those who are mildly obese are just as healthy if not healthier than the so-called normal weight class.

It's the scrawny below normal weight set that surprisingly enough, has a significantly higher mortality.

Posted by: Additional Blond Agent at January 29, 2013 07:41 PM (PMGbu)

135 Shaming people and bullying them is a fine line. Yeah, I know I am a softy when it comes to that. I know people who struggle with their weight that aren't necessarily lazy slobs.

They are good folks who work hard and do right by people. To openly disparage them for having a few extra pounds while dickhead skinny libs walk around and trash people is not what I call progress.

I have no problem with charging smokers and obese people more for health insurance and such. But ask yourself, who is more harmful to society, the skinny Barack Obama or some fat, patriotic Conservatives?

What Corrola is missing here is the only reason we would want to disparage fat people is we are subsidizing their health care in some fashion. He is actually making a big government argument and doesn't realize it. If we were doing it right, it wouldn't matter who was fat or not because they would be carrying their own weight, so to speak.

148 The problem is that there IS shame in this society. It's just reserved for things that shouldn't be shameful: like having standards. (Don't judge me!) Or making money honestly (you're exploiting the poor, man!) Or, God forbid, voting Republican. There's also shame in some things that are undesirable, but in the big scheme don't really matter: like being fat.

There's no shame in being lazy or a moocher anymore.

Posted by: Peej at January 30, 2013 08:36 AM (ctaN6)

149 One of my parents told me a long time ago that people seemed no longer ashamed of their vulgarities, indencies, and wrongdoings. As an example, she cited how back in the 50s and 60s, generally kids could roam neighborhoods safely and walk from home school. . . I asked, "Is it because there fewer weirdos around to harm kids?" She replied, "No. Those people existed, but they were too scared and ashamed to act."

Face it, human relativism and the thought that "if it feels good, do it" has actually let people thinks it's okay to be fat, entitled, abusive, rude, vulgar, openly perverted, and wear jeggings or meggings in public.

152 Shaming, that's interesting. I traffic in the Tumblr porn blogs quite a bit and one thing I've found there that really disturbs me is fat girls taking pride in being fat. And I mean FAT.

WTF is that ? Since when is taking absolutely no care of yourself at all and becoming abjectly unattractive and unhealthy, something to take pride in ?

If we want "shaming" to be effective, we've got a LONG way to go. The liberals have been unbelievably effective in making virtually any lifestyle something to take pride in. Ridiculous.

Posted by: deadrody at January 30, 2013 12:06 PM (kLSvx)

153 Shaming is still AROUND. Look around you. It's just that now you are shamed for not being a dull witted emotional democrat instead of say being self destructive or incoherent. Success is shameful now. Knowing what the hell you are talking about and being able to explain it is shameful. Opposing stupid policies is shameful. Being incovenient to the left in any way is shameful. If Adam Carolla doesn't see shaming going on all around him, then he's an unobservant chump and a bit of a dumb ass. And that's a real shame.

Posted by: Cackfinger at January 30, 2013 04:09 PM (CCHli)

154 The problem with "shaming" fat people into losing weight is that people are fat for different reasons. We've been fed a lot of junk science with an agenda to demonize fat people in the push for socialized medicine. Not all of them are gluttons or lazy. I am not fat myself, but I am a health care professional, and I can tell you that there are meds, treatments, diseases, conditions, disorders, mental health issues, sudden loss of ability to exercise.. all kinds of reasons people gain weight. You can't look at a person and know why they are big. Stop listening to the people that are pushing hate in the name of socialized medicine and use your brain.
